I took part in a writing conference over the weekend, and during the course of the conference, participated in an exercise of random words. Specifically, participants were to give the workshop instructor random nouns. One that gave was skyscraper. It was an interesting choice, partly chosen because I had recently heard Demi Lovato’s “Skyscraper” on my IPod.
Prompt: One person did chose this word in an exercise and it conjured images of 9/11 for her. Think about the word skyscraper. What does it bring to mind for you? There are no wrong answers.
This one didn’t post yesterday, so it is a day late. Oops!
Prompt for the day: I was fascinated with Crayola colors in art class as a child. Two crayons colors I was drawn to were the blue-green and the green-blue crayons. Yup, you are probably thinking what I was thinking: wouldn’t they be the same color? No, they weren’t, as one was a bit more green and the other a bit more blue. I was drawn to them and would use them frequently, fascinated by the fact of how dominance of one color changed the entire color combination.
Yeah, probably not the most productive use of art class, but hey, I enjoyed color!
Prompt: Think of color. What fascinates you? How does color effect you? Think of a memory and the effect of color.
