Well it's time to change things up. Sort of.
In addition to my regular Tuesday/Thursday essays on creativity, roots and the portfolio life, I'd like to introduce a series on Wednesdays for those of you interested in PRACTICING creative thinking.
It's the way to Carnegie Hall, right?
I'm calling this new series, "Word-in-a-Word Wednesday".
Here's how it works.
I will introduce a word, then point out a word within it.
Your challenge is to take each word in a word and figure out a creative way the two words connect.
For example, the word "art" is in the word "earth": eARTh.
If this were the Wednesday word, I would ask you questions about how art relates to the earth, for example.
You can either respond in the comments on this blog, on my Facebook page for creative writers & artists, in your head, on your blog or where and how you like.
Today's word is "request".
The word "quest" is in the word request: reQUEST
Are requests from others quests?
Can they be?
How has someone's request become a quest in your life?
(I hope you enjoy this! I hope it challenges you. And, don't worry, Word-in-a-Word Wednesday posts going forward will be VERY short!)
