Zis for Zizzer Zazzer Zuzz

Is of Writing: Inspirational Writing Prompt

Just like J.K. Rowling and Dr. Seuss, invent plants, animals, and creatures such as a Womping Willow or a Zizzer Zazzer Zuzz.

Brainstorm plants and animals for a realistic ABC book.

Create new creatures for a fantasy ABC book.

Create a “bible”, a resource listing all of the plants, animals and names of places in your novel.

Try world-building. (Tolkien invented another language, but you do not need to be so elaborate.)

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.

    Good finish! I’ve not met a Zizzer zazzer zuzz, but I have started inventing things for my sci fi series. Inventing swear words is the hardest part – but I found someone who had some guidelines, possibly under S for swearing 🙂
    Well done on completing your alphabet this year!
