I picked up a book (in print) PB had been reading in the hope of being inspired for today’s #blogjune post. Heh. It didn’t take long.
“Provocative. Just one word….provocative.
Until recently, prospective students at All Soul’s College, at Oxford University took a ‘one-word’ exam. The Essay, as it was called, was both anticipated and feared by applicants. They each flipped over a piece of paper at the same time to reveal a single word. The word might have been ‘innocence’ or ‘miracles’ or ‘water’ or ‘provocative’. Their challenge was to craft an essay in three hours inspired by that single word.” InGenius: a crash course on creativity by Tina Seelig. p.3.
Today I reveal the word, tomorrow I write the post. Would you like to join me?
