Thirty-By-Thirty Challenge: Day 1. "Current"
The Submit-O-Rama has ended ... but a new challenge begins! Today is Day 1 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 1. current

Today's prompt is "Current." Things that are current are new, happening in the here and now, or simply "current" in the minds of the public. Write about a current event; snap a photo of a fesitbal or local event in your area. Or maybe your mind is drawn to the currents of the water ... write about that current, too, or paint the waves created by the current of a river, or ocean. Write or draw, sing or sew ... do whatever your creativity inspires!


Inspirational Quote: "So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past." ~F. Scott Fitzgerald

  1. Temptress. I should be working on revision. Beginning is the easy part. No. I can't do another 30x until I revise from April. No. No. Well, maybe just a taste.

  2. p.s. Is there any way you might add the "name/URL" option to your comment-as list? For us Wordpress users. The platforms are not playing together as friends.

  3. Hi, Barbara! I say leap in where you will! :) (You can even 30x30 as you revise ... use a prompt or two to inspire changes!)

    Unfortunately the only way to allow a "name/URL" option would be to open comments to "Anyone/Anonymous" commentors, and that tends to lead to a lot of spam or the need for word verification (which is a pain). Try using the OpenID option; this usually lets you set up just one username/password to use across multiple platforms (it's Google/Blogger/WordPress/etc. friendly)


Thank you so much for your comments! Please feel free to share your thoughts here; I look forward to engaging in conversation with you!
