30x30: day 11. by the numbers

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. by the numbers

Pick a number ... any number. Preferably a number above five. Now, use that number to inspire your project. Write a poem with X-number of lines. Write a story with Y-number of characters. Bake a dish with Z-number of ingredients. How high can you go? Brainstorm a list of all the traits that make your favorite character in your current project a great character ... then write a character who is the exact opposite. Think of all the reasons you struggle as an artist ... then create a piece that counters all those doubts, worries, and struggles. Play the numbers game, and create!
