Self-Care Creativity Day Five

We have the best intentions at heart but ______ gets in the way.

What gets in the way of your creativity? Describe a few things. Visualize it. Be honest with yourself.

For example… moving got in the way of us posting this prompt earlier today. 

Self-Care Creativity Day Three

The hardest part with most of these challenges is finding time to do them. Everyday life doesn’t stop just because you have a new creativity challenge. 

 

How do you find time to do the things that you want to do, that allow you to be creative, and bring you joy? If you struggle with this, brainstorm ways that you can work it into your schedule. Where can you carve out 15 minutes two or three times into your day?

Fall Back Into Creativity: Day 6

When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?

Has that changed as you got older?

Are you there yet?

Spring Into Creativity 21/30 – Memory Meditation

Meditate on a positive childhood memory and then create what comes from that meditation. Try to focus on both feelings and imagery.

30 in 30: Day 29 – Embrace change

Change something about your project today. Change your character in some way. Alter their perception or change their mind about something important. Change your direction. Turn left when you were clearly supposed to go right. Change the way you write a poem. Pick today to rhyme. Change the way you approach an essay. If you typically do a lot of research, go off the top of your head today.

 

Embrace change today and have some fun with it!

30 in 30: Day 28 – What is your background?

Write out the background for either yourself or one of your characters. It could be about you or the character personally, as in their history. Or it could be about genealogy and ancestry. Be sure to relate this to who you or your character is currently (present moment in the story). Make connections. See how it ties together. Insert the sense of discovery with it.

Have fun!

30 in 30: Day 27 – Insert your favorite dish

Give something edible a staring role. Take the focus off of conflict, drama, or whatever else is going on in your writing and focus on the food.

Make sure to use all five senses.

Most of all, make sure to have fun writing!
