I made up this mnemonic to help me remember Kipling's six "'honest serving men" (What, Who, When, Where, Why, How); as five of them start with 'W' I thought it would be easier if the mnemonic is based on the last letters of the W words.
Thus the mnemonic is:
The TONEY part is the last letter of the W words, so putting a W as a prefix should jog the memory:
W + T = What
W + O = Who
W + N = When
W + E = Where
W + Y = Why
and odd-man-out is H, which is for 'How'.
What other mnemonics linked to creativity are there, and what new ones could be made up? There is SCAMPERR but I think one is needed for the de Bono's 'Six Thinking Hats' - I'm always struggling to remember the function of each hat.
