Today is Day 15 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 15. trick

A trick can be a mean-spirited or playful prank, a scam or deception, or a secret or skill. A character might trick someone into doing something. You might have learned your dad’s trick for tying the perfect tie. Learn a new trick. Put it into words, or into a recipe, or a song, or a work of art. Learn a famous artist’s “trick” (technique) and work it into a new art piece. Find a way to trick the minds of your readers or viewers. Play with it, and have fun!


Inspirational Quote: “Add a little bit of wine, and a little bit of sugar … And that’s my trick.” ~Pete Clemenza, The Godfather
