blank page promptWe all have a creative or imaginative self. We just need to unlock it — or unblock it if it’s been repressed, ignored, or simply overwhelmed.

Every Monday I’ll provide a “blank page prompt” so you can start your week off with a simple creative exercise. Take the prompt below and do what you will: write a poem, journal, draw, paint, collage, sculpt, write in chalk on the driveway if that’s what it takes. Maybe you want to compose a song or create a dance. It doesn’t have to be perfect and it doesn’t have to take all day.  Just take the prompt and follow your first impulse — and do it as quickly as you can, before you can start editing yourself.

Ready?

Invent a place — a country, city, island, world. Describe, draw, or otherwise “map” it out.
