How do I learn to be creative?
To answer the 'non-creative' part of your question -- yes, there are certainly advantages to sketching UIs with pencil and paper first, and many full-time UI designers will do this. It's quicker, it's often easier to show to other people (who themselves are less reluctant to criticise something that looks like it took a long time to do), and you can very easily make changes on the fly based on their comments. Check out Carolyn Snyder's excellent Paper Prototyping book and website for lots more about that.
