Leski sees the creative process as being like a storm it slowly begins to gather and take form until it overtakes us if we are willing to let it It is dynamic continually in motion it starts stops rages and abates ebbs and flows In illustrations that accompany each chapter she maps the arc of the creative process by tracing the path of water droplets traveling the stages of a storm .

Leski describes unlearning ridding ourselves of preconceptions only when we realize what we don t know can we pose the problem that we need to solve We gather evidence with notebook jottings research the collection of objects propelling the process We perceive and conceive we look ahead without knowing where we are going we make connections We pause retreat and stop only to start again To illustrate these stages of the process Leski draws on examples of creative practice that range from Paul Klee to Steve Jobs from the discovery of continental drift to the design of Antoni Gaudi s Sagrada Familia .
