Day 28: Happy birthday Lady Gaga!

I flipping love Lady Gaga.

I’ve heard her described as “the new Madonna” and I can see why; but that’s doing her a disservice.

She’s obviously influenced by Madonna, and has said as much, but she’s also influenced by other artists—and she’s taken all those influences, added a dash of weird, and made it all her very own.

Which is what creativity and originality is.

It’s not coming up with something 100% unique—it’s not creating a unicorn.

Creativity and originality is all about picking and choosing, making connections, and turning them into something uniquely you.

So my prompt today is: make like Lady Gaga and create a connection. Put a twist on something familiar.

Set a timer and have at it.

Happy writing!
