30x30: day 23. persona

Today is Day 23 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 23. persona

Today, take on a persona. Write a character who is the exact opposite of yourself, or someone you know well. Write a poem in the voice of a loved one, or a stranger. Write a creative nonfiction piece on the life of a neighbor ... whether you know them well or not. Write a love song between your checkout person at a grocery store and the produce you buy. Make a meal in opposition to your usual tastes. Use colors you'd never typically use or put together in a new art piece. Slip out of your own skin and embrace the skin of another.


Inspirational Quote: "Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation." ~Oscar Wilde
