I’ll be honest, the first weekly creative prompt and all the surrounding thinking, from here, didn’t really happen. I managed to let it inspire my Wordless Wednesday but beyond that, there was no music and no real writing. However, I’m not one to give up so soon, so as we move into the second week of 2021 we have a second weekly creative prompt.
I’m going to remain positive, both with the concept and with the prompt. There is far too much negative thought and energy around at the moment. Therefore, the prompt shouldn’t take you, or me, down any darkened alleyways of despair — although creative expression knows no barriers. We can at least begin positively.
This week’s creative prompt word is:
“hope” — a feeling of expectation and desire for a particular thing to happen…
and the thesaurus adds… an aspiration, desire, wish, expectation, ambition, aim, plan, dream, daydream, longing, yearning, craving, hankering…
Let the prompt inspire you in any area of creativity that you are interested:
- writing fiction
- art journaling
- blog posts
- art therapy
- anything that could use a little nudge to begin
I have ‘hope’ written on the board above my computer. I am confident it will inspire me on my creative journey this week. At the very least, it will remind me that there is more to life than the current events shared on the news.
As mentioned before, this isn’t a ‘challenge’ but the prompts can be used that way if you want. If you do create anything using them, I would love to see or hear about it. Leave a link in the comments below or tag me @darrenrhill or #thecreativeminimalist on any social platform.
