If you are like me and are capable of multitasking; knitting or crocheting during class is a great way to keep your hands and your mind occupied at the same time. I really struggle to sit still and listen in classes, and I've found that since I started being "a granny" in class, I retain so much more information!
Every creative person needs a diary. And everyone has those few minutes while waiting for a friend to pitch up, or while waiting for a lecturer to arrive at a class. Getting your ideas down in a book (even in scribbles) is a wonderful way to keep the creative juices flowing.
