30x30: day 11. jones

Today is Day 11 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 11. jones

“Jones? Isn’t that a name?” Yes … yes it is. Today, use this surname as your jumping off point. Do you have a great story with a friend whose last name is Jones? Do you have a recipe based on something you saw in an Indiana Jones movie? Maybe you’ve been working to keep up with the Joneses all your life. Or maybe you’re “jonesing” for some good wine. Play with the meaning of “Jones” or “jones” and see what comes of it!


Inspirational Quote: Never keep up with the Joneses. Drag them down to your level. It’s cheaper.” ~Quentin Crisp

  4. I reworked mine, so it's here now.

  5. Lots of places to go with this one. My sister married a Jones about the time George Jones was living in our hometown (not exactly the brightest period in his career. I knew a girl who worked for him. She said her job mostly consisted of calling on Monday apologizing for his no-shows.)
