Week 5 Prompts


Here are the prompts for the 5th week of the ‘new’ Matinée Muse.
They are offered to inspire your creativity.

Perhaps you will write a poem, or a short story?
Maybe you’ll create a related artwork, or a photograph?

However you express yourself creatively, please create that expression, post it to your site, and link it here.

This week’s first Matinée Muse creativity prompt is:

“spirit of the underdog”

Inspired by the current animated film, ‘The Clone Wars’.


• • •

This week’s second Matinée Muse creativity prompt is:

“driven by obsession”

Inspired by the classic 1966 Michelangelo Antonioni film, ‘Blow Up’.

Please share with us your poem, short story, artwork, photograph — or whatever you’ve been inspired to create.

Express yourself!
