Feeling Creative?

I find that creativity comes in fits and starts. Sometimes it's like the rushing tide, roaring in and crashing against the sides of my brain. But other times it's more like the slow drip drop of a tap that hasn't quite been turned up tight enough.
Usually I find the creative waves are flooding my head at the most inopportune moments, times when I'm knowhere near a pen and paper, like when i'm at work...
Then when I've sat myself down in my free time, full of the longing to craft words together into exciting new formations, the slow drip drop is all I can find and all the exciting ideas from before seem to have fallen right out of my ears. 
It's not always like this of course, sometimes the words flow like a stream cascading down the side of a mountain, that is when I most love writing. When the stream of words is flowing through me and I'm no longer sure if I'm reading or writing my story.
