Welcome to week one of our expressive creativity prompt project. For these prompts, I personally place an emphasis on film or play writing — but anything goes. Use these to fuel any creative endeavor. Feel free to review the project here.
I have a little romantic twinge for old crafts. Things we no longer have to do but we might choose to — sewing, knitting, the like. It makes me think of the history of women, of this shared experience passed down (and for some of us, hi hello, forgotten) through generations. A crackling fire, a ball of yarn — it makes me yearn for other times.
And so, your prompt for today…
Who might unravel? What kind of person or character comes apart at the seams? Or maybe it’s not a character moment at all – perhaps it’s more literal than that. Or could things are more about restitching yourself back together after a knotty situation? What if the opposite is true: does the world suddenly make more sense?
Craft your 5-10 minute play or film over the weekend and keep the idea ‘unravel’ in your mind.
Post your responses below in the comments or to our Discord by Monday & I’ll check ’em out!
