Writing Prompt: A is for Azure

The Is of Writing: Inspirational Writing Prompt

Azure is a beautiful name and a name is very special. Inspiration for names have come from flowers, months, days of the week and, yes, even colours. Be creative. Make a list of colours that could be used as names. Choose one colour and write a character sketch. Go a step further, choose to do this for a week and you will have seven new characters.

About Denise Reashore

Denise M. Reashore spends most of her free time reading, writing, and gardening - - or staring out the window at the brightness of a new day and dreaming of digging in the earth. Throughout the winter, precious free time goes into mapping and planning her future garden and, hopefully, writing and reading retreat. The rest of the time, from September to June, she spends working as an elementary school teacher. She lives on almost 3 acres, in an old Victorian style home, with her husband, two lovely daughters, and a cat.

  1. Thanks for the fun tip! (I’m always agonizing about coming up with new character names… I’ll give this a try!)


    • It is fun to make up names but sometimes it can be difficult. I scan baby books or explore baby name websites for inspiration. I make a list of the ones I like while I am searching. Then put the list away for later.
