Sometimes I just need something to spark my creativity and get me going. If you haven’t already checked it out, when you need some inspiration or a challenge to get you thinking, visit SoulPancake. SoulPancake is the brainchild of Rainn Wilson , which aims to engage users and to get them to “Chew on Life’s Big Questions”.
The site’s Attack A Creative Challenge section recently featured an activity called The Poem Is Waiting For You. The idea is to grab a page from a book, magazine, etc. and find the poem waiting for you (and discover the poet you are and didn’t even know it – hee hee) by using a sharpie to chip away at the words until you create your own masterpiece. I couldn’t wait to try it! I’ve posted mine below. Give it a whirl yourself and tap into your creative self and inner-poet!
