In response to In response to 12

I actually found a summary of the research in a different article. Basically, what they did was put groups of people in different environments, including coffee houses with different noise levels, and then asked them to come up with creative uses for a brick. The people who consistantly came up with the most uses as well as the most creative (iirc) were the ones within the noise range under 75 decibels. So the study itself was a controlled study, not an observational or elect-in study. A downside to the study is that they worked in groups, so it's not necessarily an accurate reflection of solo work.

I think the study is a good thing ro remind us that not only what we're working on is important, but where we work on it.

As to inspiration vs. productivity, well, I think there are levels of each. At some points in the process, inspiration and those leaps and connections are more important than reaching a quantity. But when shifting to actual writing prose work, I see that as more production work with inspiration aiding the crafting process. But also remember that I'm a total outliner, plotter, whatever. For me, these processes don't necessarily happen the same way as someone who is organic/pantser. Or even someone in between. Such a YMMV issue.
