642 Things the IV

It has been awhile since we had a 642 things prompt! Did anyone miss them? Does anyone care? Just me? Well, okay, then. I’ll do this just for me and the one person in the back who’s too shy to pipe up. 😉 Last time (more than a month ago!), the prompt was to describe […]

642 Things: The Inaugural Prompt

For Christmas, my good friend Bri bought me a great book called 642 Things to Write About. It is exactly what it sounds like: 642 random things to write about. I love this type of thing. There are few things that get the creative juices flowing better than a prompt that has nothing to do with anything […]

This Mortal Coil | Creative Challenge

A quickie this week. We’re going to toss a theme out there, and you get to run with it. This is something that I’ve been thinking about a lot lately. That I struggle with constantly. I know I’m not the only one. Maybe you can take some of your own existential angst and turn it […]

CreativeChallengesBLANK

For our ninth creative challenge, I want you to pick a topic that really gets you riled up. One of those topics that are supposed to be off-limits in the public sphere because people get so heated about them, fights inevitably break out. Usually fist fights. Sex, politics, religion, whatever it is that gets you […]

Taking Your Time I Creative Challenge

This week our challenge is time sensitive, or rather being sensitive to your time. Jessica and I will do our best to become in tune with a sort of slow energy. Not lethargic, but deliberate. Sometimes we can rush our creative juices to get to an end product that you can finallly look back on, […]

Creative Challenge: Stealing from the Greats

The First Line

Well. Stealing inspiration, anyway. And a first line! The challenge this week is to take the first line of a book (a book you love, a book you hate, a book you’ve never read) and use it as your own first line. Write any kind of piece you want. Remember to cite the source of […]

Abstract or Surreal | Creative Challenge

CreativeChallengeabstractsurreal

This week we’re delving headfirst into the intentionally nonsensical. I’ll admit this challenge is a little bit selfish. I don’t know if I’ve ever seen abstract literature. Maybe some of Becketts’ stuff. Surrealist could probably be done more easily with words. I just really want to see what Jessica does with this :). I also […]

Garbage Day! | Creative Challenge

creativechallengegarbageday

Creative Challenge Time! This week we are doing a straightforward theme…. The theme being: GARBAGE! Lots of different ways to interpret this, so I’m really looking forward to Jessica’s response, and everyone else’s too. Should be lots of variety, I’m betting. Have a great week and we’ll see you back here next monday for the […]
