Creative Tooling

As someone who works in an office, I don't typically think about anything around me as a tool that can enhance or promote creativity. Yet, this compelling read suggests that for many fo us, the right tool can give permission for our most creative ideas. I'm not sure my laptop can suffice as both my primary messaging resource, news outlet and creative tool, but I do wonder if any of the other items in my office might suffice — I've long left the habit of handwriting in journals to prompt creative thoughts, but it's worth considering whether I should reintroduce the process as I continue compiling my poetry manuscript. What creative tools do you use or what pedestrian items might you be ignoring that have the potential to light the creative fire?
