Creative Blog Hop

First, I want to say, that I’m honored to be a part of Paula Mowery’s blog hop.  She has started up an awesome website to help us Christian writers.  And I do like to think God made us a “little special.”
Below is one of assignments that, so far, has been my favorite.

Creative God
Genesis 1:1-2 “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.”

Circle one word in each group of words.

Dawn               Mountains        Sun
Dusk                Prairie              Moon
Night                Ocean              Stars

Now describe the scene that your three words create. Only one catch – you can’t use the words you circled in your description. Show the scene. Concentrate more on showing than naming.
God created out of nothing. Writers are charged to do the same with the blank page. God is creative, and you were made in His image. Writers are gifted to create a picture with words.

My response:

A cool evening breeze lifts her hair.  She peers up from the T-Rex bones she is dusting to see Venus twinkling in the red western sky.  Did the dinosaur she uncovered ever happen to glance up and appreciate the beauty of the Heavens even though it couldn’t comprehend what it was seeing?

Grabbing a jacket, she knocks a rock down the embankment to the valley below.  Yes, this place has its own rugged and rocky beauty, but she misses the green lush landscape back home in Tennessee.  The majority of trees here are variety pine.  And the trees back home are so thick, that she can’t see all the way down like she can now.

  1. I love it, might have to steal it and try it.

  2. Thanks for participating in the hop. You are one of the most creative people I know.

  3. Great job, Brooksie! I like this exercise, as well. Like Clare, I may have to give it a go myself. :)
