Sometimes it’s easy to find inspiration to be creative. Sometimes its hard. Too many things happen in daily life and in my case, trying to find the time to finish a cup of coffee is a hard enough task (finding the cup of ice cold leftover liquid becomes a challenge, as I stick the cup on whatever shelf I can while running after EB. It’s become a rather creative endeavour on its own).
There’s challenges out there to help the creative juices. They’re aimed at a variety of subjects from drawing to journaling, calligraphy, etc. Bottom line….getting you to be creative.
Here’s a few:
Listersgottalist – Created by The Reset Girl, there’s daily prompts and at its simplest, it is about making a list based on the prompts, decorate, etc. You can also use them if you’re out of journaling ideas. A new list goes up each month. Check out the hasthag #listersgottalist on instagram to find out how people have made this challenge their own.
Llamas love lettering October challenge – Created by Cindy Guentert-Baldo, the lettering challenge is a lot of fun. You can also find her awesome Llamas Love Lettering tutorials on Youtube. This is her second lettering challenge, and the first one (#creativechallengegonewild on Instagram) was a lot of fun.
InkTober – Created by Mr Jake Parker, the challenge consists of ink drawings/doodles. One a day for the length of October.
It is never too late to start plotting your NaNoWriMo adventure. Whether you’re a planner or a pantser, you can use October to either draft your story or collect the tools of your trade (candy is a tool, I swear it is).
