Dragons are the most amazing things ever. I love reading about them, writing about them, finding pictures of them, drawing them, naming websites after them…
Okay, so I think it’s pretty clear that Dragons are cool. And this particular writing activity is all about them. You see, since dragons have been around for such a long time, we get these ideas about them from all the stuff we’ve read and seen, and sometimes that can make it hard to write our very own unique character.
For example, we all know that dragons breathe fire.
But what if our dragon could breathe something else? Occasionally we get an ice breathing dragon, or lightening breathing dragons. I have a note down somewhere to write about a dragon that breathes out poofs of dust, which is rather inconvenient since he lives in a very clean, fancy hotel.
How did I go from fire breathing dragons to one that breathes dust bunnies? Well, I made a list. I wrote down all the things that dragons might breathe, fire, ice, flowers. . .Wait what?
The longer you make your list, the more you make yourself really think. You start running out of the every-day options and instead have to get creative and think outside the box.
So, write down 10 things your dragon might breathe, then try to think of just one more and see what you come up with!
You can tell me some of your strangest ideas in the comments if you want.
