Micro-moments of creativity throughout the day boost overall creative thinking, productivity, and wire the brain for innovation.
I’ve published three creativity-inspiring apps in the Google Play store.
1) Choose either 6 Words (with prompt), 6 Words (without prompt), or 3 Words
For 6 Words (without prompt), enter your story in six words. For example, “Bought the cereal, forgot the milk.” Tap “Save” and the app will save your story.
Need ideas? Choose 6 Words (with prompt). Tap “Need Ideas?” and you’ll see an idea appear. If you like it, write your 6 Word Story about it! For example, if the idea is “Delicious,” you might write, “Chocolate covered strawberries in ice cream.” Tap “Save” and the app will save your story.
For 3 Words, you’ll be given the first 3 words. You enter the last three words. For example, you might be given “I ran out” and then you add the last 3 words, for example, “the door screaming.” Make every story your own. Note: if you want a different first 3 words, just tap “Need Ideas?” again. Tap “Save” and the app will save your story.
2) See Saved Stories – tap this to see your saved stories. Hold your finger on a story to select, edit, delete, download, or share. Select multiple boxes at a time to download more than one to the same document, or delete more than one. You can even edit the first 3 words that were given to you if you used 3 Words.
Save your thoughts of the day in a Haiku poem! The Haiku is a beautiful little piece of poetry containing 17 syllables in three lines. The first line has 5 syllables. The second has 7 syllables, and the last line has 5 syllables. Give your Haiku a title, and then place your thoughts into the lines.
Here’s an example:
This is Haiku
Five syllables here
Seven syllables go here
Five more and you’re done!
Here’s another example:
My dream was replaced
by the rough tongue of my cat
abrading my face.
Be funny, be serious, be thoughtful, be creative! It’s all up to you!
Need inspiration? Click Get Ideas for some prompts you can use to get your creative juices flowing.
When you click on the Submit button, your Haiku will be saved with the date. You can revisit, share, or download your Haikus from the See Saved Haikus page.
Express your year in Haikus and then download them into an ebook. Share your favorites with your friends. Revisit your memories any time. My Daily Haiku is a wonderful app you can use any time.
Reflective Moments gives you a quick daily 30-second prompt and a place to submit and save your answers.
Your answers are saved, and can be reviewed, downloaded, or shared.
In just 30 seconds a day, you’ll have a chance to reflect and record the moments that matter.
Think of it as journaling for the busy person – just as meaningful, and designed to fit into your busy schedule!
Open the app, select Reflect, and you’ll be given a prompt to fill in. Click save when you’re done!
To review your previous entries, select See Saved Entries. From there, you can select your entries to download, share, or delete. Your saved entries will automatically display with the newest at the top. To sort with the oldest on top, click the “older” button. Hold your finger on one of the prompts on the list and you will see check boxes appear to the left. Select those that you’d like to download or delete, and touch the download or delete button.
