It’s time for another weekly creative prompt word. These weekly words, or prompts, are to give me, and anyone else who wants to join in, some focus to our creative work.
The festival Imbolc takes place this week. The exact timing depends on how close you want to stick to the astrological calendar. There are many myths, legends, and stories about what Imbolc is about, with different belief systems vying for prominence. However, what is certain is that the date has historically been seen as the beginning of spring. Therefore…
This week’s creative prompt word is:
Begin — perform or undergo the first part of an action or activity:
if you are in the grip of winter weather it may be hard to believe, but beneath the snow and ice, life is getting ready to begin
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 now have ‘begin’ written on the board above my computer. I am hoping it will inspire me on my creative journey this week. So far, this year I have struggled with motivation and my creativity has been minimal. Using begin this week, I hope it will kickstart things.
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.
