Every Wednesday, YA Highway asks their readership a simple question to answer on your blog. Once you answer, you link your blog in the comments for other readers to hop on board. This is Road Trip Wednesday.
Today's topic: Invent your own magical creature.
You mean the Wild Beezus isn't one? He's white with blue eyes and yodels with a nose that twitches like a bunny and ears reminiscent of a mouse.
Witness my photo as proof.
Okay, since none of you believe the fuzzy picture is a magical creature, I guess I'll have to share what I have.
In my current WIP's world, I deal with magical beings, but the main ones are established beasties like golyms and chimeras. I have created something, but don't know what it should be called.
So, in addition to this being Road Trip Wednesday, this is also a contest to name the beastie.
Read the description.
Comment with a name and leave your email address.
Contest will remain open through Friday.
Something fun and magical, like Shrinky Dinks, perhaps*.
Credit for naming and general renown for awesomeness.
Small (fits in palm of hand) and bug-like. It scuttles when it walks. It has a phosphorus glow. It has little bumps for ears that are called "nodes" and are situated on the top of the head. It's friendly and makes noises that other humans find endearing (so it purrs, coos, meeps, etc.) as a survival mechanism. It's used to help hone magic for those who practice.
That's it, but hey, it's a WIP.
So, Lurkdom, what should this critter be called?
Don't forget to enter our race to 150 contest.
* As you can tell, I haven't thought the prize through, but it will be fun!
