To stimulate the creative side of my brain, I do writing exercises.There are many different methods of this but one of my favorites is to write down a word and then write what comes to mind next, and then again. Quite often, more than one word will come to mind. I write them both down and keep branching out. Soon, there'll be a page full of words that seem to make no sense yet are related. Usually, this process will trigger something. It gets my mind thinking in different directions rather than being stuck in whatever rut I was in.(less)

Picture Years ago, back when I was in kindergarten, my teacher used to read the class a short story now and then. (Probably every day but I don’t really remember for sure). One day she read about a family that took a weekend trip to the ocean. It was a nice little story that centered on all the fun activities the family did: swimming, boating, beachcombing, looking for seashells, etc.

“My daddy taught me to always do the right thing, no matter what the consequences. When I would ask how I was supposed to know what was right, he’d just say, ‘You’ll know.’ He was right, and so is this.”
Bruce A. Borders, Over My Dead Body

“An investigator, not an interrogator, is the best lie detector test available. The two, however, do go hand in hand. And being a detective, you will need to play both roles.” “So, as an interrogator, I should assume they are telling the truth?” “No. Never assume anything. Just ask the questions.” “What”
