The other day, I was reading about creation in the Bible trying to get some creative inspiration from THE Creator. I focused on Genesis 2 and came across a fun point.
So the Lord God formed from the ground all the wild animals and all the birds of the sky. He brought them to the man to see what he would call them, and the man chose a name for each one. He gave names to all the livestock and all the birds of the sky, and all the wild animals. But still there was no helper just right for him.
God wanted Adam to be a part of the creative process! He could have brought the animals to Adam and said, “here are the animals, this is what each of them is called. Take care of them.” But He didn’t, he let Adam name them! What a fun job.
Today in our writing prompt, I want you to do some naming. Below are three creatures that need names! Choose one (or more) of the creatures and give it a name, a species, and a brief description of it’s characteristics/qualities/personality.
(I thought about names after I drew them, but If you want, I would love to know your ideas! Email them to melinda at inatickle dot com. I might have to write some stories about them.)
Take it to the next level! Draw your own creature and write out the name, species, qualities. Maybe even write a short story about your character.
