Creative Thinking Challenge #11

In the “Grow Creativity!” article, Candace Hackett Shively shares four aspects of creativity: fluency, flexibility, originality, and elaboration. This article had me hooked from the beginning:

The world needs creative thinkers, scientists, engineers, leaders, and contributing workers. yet research repeatedly shows creativity is schooled out of us. 

The Creative Thinking Challenge prompts focus on areas in all of these aspects and use ideas inspired by many different sources.

I would love for you to participate …

  • even if you don’t think you are very creative
  • the point of these prompts is to get the creative juices flowing 
  • even if that only means letting small ideas begin to trickle out

I find that I get lots of new ideas from looking at the things others have done … and I bet we all interpret the prompts in unique ways.

The best part is that you get to choose how you want to respond to this prompt. And there is no deadline. The next prompt will post on the 1st of the month.

(I post past prompts on the Creative Thinking tab at the top of my blog)

Creative Thinking Challenge Prompt: Tell A Story

Since this the week of Valentine’s Day, I have seen several people telling love stories in different ways.

I want to challenge you this time to figure out a unique way to tell a story.

It can be a story you have already told, even a post you have already created, or something you have never shared before …

Think of a new way to communicate the story …

Images tell stories …

What can be used to those create images?

Songs tell stories …

Lines tell stories …

Movements tell stories …

Numbers, colors, and shapes can tell stories …

What story will you tell?

What will you use to tell your story?

How will you do it?
