642 Creative Challenge: Write About the Year You Were the Coolest or Draw Alphabet Soup

It’s time for the next creative challenge inspired by the 642 series (642 Things to Draw, 642 Things to Write About, and other sources of endless quirky inspiration), the ultimate set of books to help you get creative every single day. Each journal is filled with quirky prompts, meaning you never have to draw a blank!

Here is your challenge:

DRAW alphabet soup
WRITE what year was your maximum coolness?

It’s still chilly out, so this month we want you to get cozy and draw a bowl of alphabet soup. Share your illustration on Tumblr or Instagram for a chance to win a copy of 642 Things to Draw, 642 Tiny Things to Draw, and a set of Faber-Castell Polychromos colored pencils!

Or try our writing prompt from the upcoming 642 Things to Write About Me instead. Now that we’ve made it through January, it is very officially, solidly, 2016—but we want to hear about the year when you were the coolest version of yourself. Your glory year. Post your story with the hashtag #642things for a chance to win 642 Things to Write About, 642 Tiny Things to Write About, and a set of  Bright Ideas Graphite Pencils.

Submit your entries on Tumblr or Instagram, and don’t forget to include the hashtag #642things and tag us @chroniclebooks!

Here’s a bowl of inspiration from junior designer Lisa Ferkel.
