Throughout the summer, I (and some cool creative ladies) have been participating in in BYOC: Bring Your Own Creativity. It’s an extremely simple, fun way to practice your creativity this summer. Hopefully you have joined in at some point, if not, this is your last chance (until next summer).
I’ll be sharing the August prompt today. Interpret the prompt and complete it in whatever way your creativity speaks to you and makes sense. These prompts are completely open-ended and can be interpreted by writing, drawing, sewing, knitting, hand-lettering, painting, taking photos, songwriting, building something, etc. The possibilities are endless!
On the 25th of August (or shortly thereafter), anyone participating BYOC, will share how we completed the prompts…and we truly hope you will do the same! The prompts we are using were specifically chosen to allow room for true creative expression. Share how you responded to the prompt using #byocreativity.
Your prompt for August is…travel
Your response to the prompt could be about a trip you have taken, somewhere you want to go, or even something you could use on an adventure! Use both past and future adventures as your inspiration!
If you have an idea of what you might create, then awesome, go create! If you need some help getting started, keep reading.
First make a list of past trips and potential future trips. Don’t include every trip you have ever taken, but the ones that stand out the most to you for one reason or another. Take a look at my list below if you need some help.
Go back through your list and choose the trip you feel most inspired by – it doesn’t matter if you experienced it 5 years ago or if it is in the distant future – if you are excited about it, then you should choose it.
Once you have chosen your trip, you need to decide what medium you will use to create:
It is totally up to you to determine how to best answer the prompt. Remember, the prompt is open-ended for a reason – so you don’t feel too constrained. If you have an idea, just go with it. Don’t forget to share using #byocreativity. I can’t wait to see what you create!
