Daily Creativity #0013

Every day we play with a creative challenge. What we create doesn’t have to be grand. It doesn’t have to be perfect. We aim to stretch our creative muscles, be playful, and have fun!

Every day we take a little journey with some unexpected turns. That’s the beauty of creativity. If you just let it, it will fill you with wonder.

The Challenge

Our creative challenge today is made of the following set. If you are familiar with the creomondi building blocks, use the set to explore, imagine, and create. Alternatively, read how we played with it for inspiration first.

The Seeds We Will Use in our Story

And We Are Aiming to Create…

##### And then use it as inspiration for…

Let’s Play

I love 50-Word Stories. On the one hand, they should obviously have a plot, even if a very condensed one. On the other hand, they leave plenty of room for interpretation, and every reader can complete the missing details using their own imagination. Add to that the rigorous constraint — their length should be exactly 50 words — and you get a cool creative challenge.

Today we are going to write a 50-Word Story, but two of the words are already given. Our story must include the titles of the Seeds we’ve randomly picked: Oz and Cartoon. Apart from that, anything is possible.

But today, we are aiming to create two things. After writing a story, read it, and look around you. Use it as inspiration to create a Photo Series made out of at least five photos.

This is the 50-Word Story I wrote, followed by photos I captured in a short walk — photos I associatively connected with the story (including some parts I’ve completed in my mind in retrospect).

All he could think of were yellow bricks. The trademark of Oz. His heart wasn’t in it, he didn’t have any idea, and clearly not the courage to try anything new. He didn’t notice his hand moving by itself. He looked at the page and saw a cartoon of himself.

Now, It Is Your Turn…

Don’t follow my steps! Take the set of cards and play with them. Use them as a guide and not as a set of rules. Let your imagination lead the way. Don’t dismiss your ideas.

Have fun! Be creative!
