Challenge yourself to make a self-portrait every day this week, using a different medium each time (pencil, paint, pastel, ketchup…). Sometimes you might just do it in 5 minutes; other days, you will spend longer. The important thing is to do it every day!
Write a story designed to evoke an emotion. Maybe it’s a feel-good story, or a calming one.
Write a story within a story. Maybe one of your characters reads a book, watches a movie or sees a play that informs the overarching plot.
