30x30: day 8. courage

Today is Day 8 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 8. courage

Today’s challenge prompt is “courage.” What does it mean to be courageous? When was a time that you, or someone you know, was courageous? Who is the most courageous person you know? What, exactly, is courage? Is it a feeling, or a state of being, or a choice? What does courage look like in words? What color is courage? What does courage taste like? What does it sound like? Think about what courage means to you, and then find a way to define it in whatever creative voice and medium you choose!


Inspirational Quote: “What makes the elephant charge his tusk, in the misty mist or the dusky dusk? What makes the muskrat guard his musk? … Courage.” ~The Cowardly Lion

  1. Courage...guess I found a bit this morning...



  2. With your help :-) I finally pulled together the poems I need to work on for a chapbook about my mother (I know. I need an angle because it's a cliche topic). I also started ruminating on a possible second book. One thing that helps me tremendously aside from you in my inbox is using Scrivener as my work vehicle.
