Today is Day 13 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)!


Note: Sorry for the delay in posting-- I was without internet for most of the day! 


day 13. plum

A plum is a fruit. But it is also a variant spelling of the colloquialism “plumb”: “I fell plum in the middle of the floor.” It also means “completely”: “I plum forgot about that meaning.” It’s also a color. “Plum” can also mean desirable, coveted, reward … and many other things. Take a moment to research the meaning, symbolism, and history of “plum” … then use it as your inspiration today!


Inspirational Quote: “What is more mortifying than to feel that you have missed the plum for want of courage to shake the tree?” ~Logan Pearsall Smith
