I know it’s supposed to be great that a picture is worth a thousand words, but sometimes I find it easier to express a clear emotion when I use less words. Like, a thousand words – that’s great – but one word will always be just one word and will forever be more succinct and clear.
Words were a really great starting point for a creative challenge, as I find it easy to express my first emotion by just writing, kind of like a stream of consciousness. I just got started, and that was the best thing about it. Well okay, I was thinking a little bit about what to do for a while, as I was debating doing a blackout poem, but I ended up just writing the words that came to me and putting them on top of a picture. Nothing revolutionising, but a creation nonetheless. Thank you, Creative Challenge.
Anyway, enough pretentiousness.
The challenge for this week is to create something out of an old piece of clothing. We’ll see how this goes as I got rid of a lot of stuff when we moved, but I’ll work it out.
Don’t know what I’m talking about? Read more about my creative challenge here.
