Dark, light. Hot, cold. Chaos, calm. Life exists in a series of contrasts and opposites. Being in opposition can lead to friction, while at other times it can be complimentary. There is no doubt that opposites attract and when it happens in nature, the coming together can result in something harmonious.
For your own art, creativity or writing bring two things together that would normally repel or even rarely co-exist at the same time. Is this attraction or opposites a result of a natural occurrence or were they forced together? What about the contrast is unusual or unexpected? What feeling did it convey?
While there is nothing new to the concept of opposites, try to think beyond big vs tall or hot vs cold. Think of two things that are unique in their own setting but make sense when together, or even they make better sense when they are apart. Use this idea to springboard your next creative step.
