September Prompt: Word Creatures

Post by Prof. Amy Lupin » Tue Sep 04, 2018 5:30 pm

As readers, we're constantly surrounded by words, letters, characters and punctuation. In some stories, such as Jasper Fforde's Thursday Next series or Scott Lynch's novella In the Stacks, there are creatures that are the embodiment of words or interact with words in some way, that ultimately introduce some change, either to the creatures themselves or to the wor(l)d around them.

I'd like you to come up with a creature that interacts with words themselves in some way and create an image of it. Talking creatures such as the Last Unicorn from the book of the same name, however awesome they are, wouldn't count.

Your work needs to be original, taking something off the internet or an idea from a book and claiming it as your own is plagiarism. Remember to keep everything HOL appropriate, adhering to all HOL rules, and please keep your submissions 600x600 pixels or smaller. Please also include a short description of your image.

You'll earn 20 beans for completing this prompt as well as it counting towards the chance to snag our shiny Ink Splatters Award.

There is no deadline as such for these prompts but if you’d like it to count towards your chance of earning the award for a specific year, we’ll need it by the end of that school year. If you’re comfortable sharing, then post below. If not, email your image and description to us via hol.bookclub @ (without the spaces).
