Today’s advice: "The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt." Sylvia Plath
Today’s prompt: Part One: Write three quick lists, of five items each. Give a very detailed description – as specific as possible – for each item.
List 1 = five colors
List 2 = five sounds
List 3 = five textures
When you are finished with your lists, scroll down for Part Two…..
and be grateful you aren’t carrying boxes inthis heat…
think of me when you are sipping lemonade……….
Part 2 – Study your lists and come up with a bunch of different combinations, using one element from each list. One of these combination is going to strike a chord inside you. You might feel it in your gut or your throat. Freewrite for fifteen minutes on the combination.
