30x30: day 10. green

Today is Day 10 of the Our Lost Jungle Thirty-By-Thirty Challenge, a challenge designed to help writers and artists foster the habit of engaging in creativity regularly. Whether you are an artist, musician, writer, or other creative type, this challenge is for you.

Each day in June will feature a prompt to help inspire you. Take on the prompt, or follow your own creative path! Please feel free to share your work here, post links to your work on your own blog or website, or just follow along (and share your progress)!

day 10. green

Green is the color of nature. Green is the color of jealousy. Green is the color of envy. Green is the color of vegetables. Green is the color of newness. Green is the color of sick. Green is a movement. Green is all these things and more. For today’s prompt, think of what green means to you and create something with it. Whether you’re writing, drawing, painting, singing (ahem: It’s not that easy bein’ what?), sewing, cooking, or something else altogether, play with green and see where it takes you.


Inspirational Quote: “Green in nature is one thing, green in literature another. Nature and letters seem to have a natural antipathy; bring them together and they tear each other to pieces.” ~Virginia Wolfe

  3. I don't know what took me this direction, except a memory of my grandmother's quirky sayings:

  5. How is it I've missed this challenge? Even though I've stopped doing these, yours is one I hope to get up to speed on, Khara. Here's green, and I'll do the rest in retrospect.
