Starting Creatively ~ 26Dec16

I liked last week’s video prompt very much so I’ve decided to choose another one for this week :-)!

I have posted a few poetry prompts over the years and I want to post some more prompts.

However, I know that there are so many poetry prompts out there that one certainly doesn’t need mine on top of that. However, I believe that we often hit a wall with blogging because we do not have another idea what to blog about. Or we hit a wall with any of our creative endeavours because the ideas run out. Therefore I am going to start another one. It might not be totally regular. And it might be a little “open minded” or a little “Stream of Consciousness” as you can see above🙂. But it will be fun and thought-provoking and creative🙂

My new “Starting Creatively” prompt isn’t restricted to one art. I give you the prompt and you choose how you want to put it into practice: Take a photo, write a poem, write a blog post or essay, draw a picture, create a dance routine, make music with it. You choose!

It is mainly meant for those times when your ideas run out and you need a little push. For this week I choose the first prompt I’ve ever created with a little editing of course :-).

I love those boots adverts with the girls and that song “Here come the girls“. Not that I am too much into makeup etc, in fact, I do not use it at all but somehow that song reminds me of my inner child. That is why this week’s writing prompt is to honour our inner children. So please ladies and gentlemen write, verse, dance, sing, paint, photograph and/or get creative in any way you see fit about

A Secret present for my inner child!

And sorry boys that there is no “Here come the boys…” song 🙂

Well, this prompt might not be very creative but alas I love food and right now I can not indulge as I have trouble with my stomach.

Therefore I channel my frustration and write some poems :-).

So please join me in my venture for this week’s “Starting Creatively” prompt

“FOOD”

Write, verse, dance, paint, sing, get creative in any way you feel like and

have fun!

This Creatively Starting post hopefully makes you smile 🙂

August 2012

We have been to Germany on our holiday and visited a place called Noerdlingen. It is in the south of the country still pretty much medieval in architecture with the wall around still standing and somehow they have been taken to pigs. All over the place you can find little statues like this:

IMG_20120823_143546

 

They reminded me of the German saying “So eine Sauerei” which means “Such a mess”. But the word for “mess” in German has to do with the German word for “pig” which is “Sau”. So literally translated it would be this week’s Creatively Starting prompt:

“Such a piggery”!

I admit a bit far-fetched but maybe it inspires you anyway :-)!

Write, verse, paint, dance, photography and/or get creative in any way you see fit.

This idea of creating a general prompt for creating in whichever art you want to create and when you run out of ideas does start to grow on me. I can’t wait to find out if it inspires anyone.

My new “Starting Creatively” prompt isn’t restricted to one art. I give you the prompt and you choose how you want to put it into practice: Take a photo, write a poem, write a blog post or essay, draw a picture, create a dance routine, make music with it. You choose!

It is mainly meant for those times when your ideas run out and you need a little push. For this week I choose the first prompt I’ve ever created with a little editing of course :-).

I am recycling one from four years ago but I think “home” is a prompt you can use again and again:

June 2012

Last night I could not sleep and I was thinking about this blog. I am really excited that I have a project that I can work on for while and having a new prompt every week is brilliant. Got my pen and journal out and jotted down some ideas for the #MondayPrompts. This morning I decided that the theme for

the  “Monday Prompt” for this week is:

HOME

It can be a poem (picture, dance, painting, song…) that you have written before or use the theme for new creations. It can be about what “home” means for you in general but also the real place you come from or you now feel home at. Let’s get creative :-). You may create just one piece of art and link it to this blog or create one every day depending on how you have time and link them as well. It is up to you!

Creatively Starting ~ What's in a name

Standard

September 2016

I didn’t realise I started writing prompts so early in my blogging “career”. As early as 2012 I tried out to establish a poetry prompt. A few more happened over the years which were not very successful. Now I know that there are so many poetry prompts out there that one certainly doesn’t need mine on top of that. However, I believe that we often hit a wall with blogging because we do not have another idea what to blog about. Or we hit a wall with any of our creative endeavours because the ideas run out. Therefore I am going to start another one. It might not be totally regular. And it might be a little “open minded” or a little “Stream of Consciousness”. But it will be fun and thought-provoking and creative 🙂
