You know the drill: draw, write, scribble, etc. Do them daily or just drop in here and there.

You can find previous monthly lists of prompts here.

A new month, a new list of creativity prompts.

These can be used for drawing, painting, writing, scribbling… whatever works for your own creative practice. Do them daily, do them daily-ish, or dip in every now and then.

Daily Creativity Prompts: March 2021

with one comment

Here is a new set of daily creativity prompts for the month of March.

Use these as drawing or writing prompts, whatever works for your own creative practice.

I’m still about a week behind on my own February drawings, so please know that skipping some days or playing catch up every once in awhile is very normal. Mostly this is just to give you a little guidance and encouragement for taking the time to sit down for a regular (or semi-regular) creative practice. Show up, allow yourself to play, see what happens.

Daily Creativity Prompts: February 2021

I personally use these as drawing prompts, but they can definitely be done as writing prompts too. If it’s helpful, set a timer: 5 minutes, 10 minutes, 15 minutes… whatever you can commit to as a daily creative practice. And not to worry, sometimes I play catch up too when I miss a few days.

If you post your work, use the hashtag #creativefuelpromptsfeb2021 so we can see them all in one place. You can see some of the results from January here

Daily Creativity Prompts: January 2021

Creative practice keeps us active, engaged, and inspired.

Daily drawing prompts have been a bit of a saving grace for me over the last few months, particularly in December, so I made another monthly list to kick this new year off.

I usually use these lists as drawing prompts, but you can use them however you see fit. They could certainly function as writing prompts if you prefer that medium. These prompts are not really about what you end up creating—the value lies in taking the time to do them, taking the time to keep your creativity going. Maybe you’ll do them daily, or maybe you’ll play catch up every once in awhile. Take some time to figure out what kind of a routine works for your own creative practice. And remember that it often changes!

Here’s to kicking off good creative habits this year.

Creative Inspiration: Daily Journaling

with one comment

As a writer, I wish I was more disciplined about keeping a daily journal, mostly because it gets the creative juices flowing. But alas, the internet takes up more time than it should, and the time I spend putting actual pen to paper is limited.

But to get those creative juices flowing again, sometimes all it takes is a little inspiration. This time that inspiration comes from my very own mother, who for one year, diligently journaled on a daily basis. Drawing and painting a daily picture of something from the natural world and writing a few words that accompanied it. The result is stunning. And I feel encouraged [if not a bit forced; my mother can’t show me up] to get out my notebook tomorrow…

Full gallery of photos after the jump.
