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 of Beltane marks the point between the spring equinox and mid-summer solstice. In the Northern Hemisphere, it is observed at the beginning of May. Many of the ancient customs and rituals associated with Beltane involve burning and marking people and boundaries with ashes. Therefore…
This week’s creative prompt word is:
Fire — a process in which substances combine chemically with oxygen from the air and typically give out bright light, heat, and smoke; combustion or burning
this isn’t the only definition of Fire, in fact, as you’ll see later, I quite like this… one of the four elements in ancient and medieval philosophy
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 ‘fire’ written on the board above my computer. I am confident it will inspire me on my creative journey this week. Alchemists regarded fire as the change agent. Fire would change element to element. And the alchemists’ goal was to create gold. What creative gold will our alchemy refine this week?
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 #thecreativeminimalist on any social platform.
