This will sound like I am bragging – and I guess I am – but I follow the research methodology of Winnie-the-Pooh. Here is the excerpt from one of A A Milne’s Winnie-the-Pooh books that I am referring to:
“Hallo, Pooh,” said Rabbit.
“Hallo, Rabbit,” said Pooh dreamily.
“Did you make that song up?”
“Well, I sort of made it up,” said Pooh. “It isn’t Brain,” he went on humbly, “because You Know Why, Rabbit; but it comes to me sometimes.”
“Ah!” said Rabbit, who never let things come to him, but always went and fetched them.”
