7/9 Weekly creativity contest winner & new prompt
for thirty minutes
grocery store run by myself
first time in a year
Fourth of July
A flash of milky
independence found in my
baby’s first bottle
And since I couldn’t attend any fireworks this year, I created some of my own (above) using Photoshop.
By default — no slight to her creative talents! — Cathy wins the contest this week. Cathy, your $10 amazon.com gift certificate is on its way!
This week’s prompt: “My mother’s house”
Use the prompt however you like. All media are welcome. Visual artists and artisans are encouraged to think laterally (perhaps your mother’s house was filled with gardenias and you’re inspired to create a gardenia pendant). Please e-mail your entries to firstname.lastname@example.org by 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, July 15. The winning entry receives a $10 gift certificate to amazon.com. Writers should include their submission directly in the body text of their e-mail. Visual artists and photographers should attach an image of their work as a jpeg. Enter as often as you like; multiple submissions for a single prompt are welcome. There is no limit to how many times you can win the weekly contest, either. (You do not have to be a contributor to this blog in order to enter. All are invited to participate.) Remember, the point here is to stimulate your output, not to create a masterpiece. Keep the bar low and see what happens. Dusting off work you created previously is OK too. For more info, read the original contest blog post.
