I am planning on writing a short story for my inquiry project. I have an idea and a general setting, but not many of the details yet.
So far, the story would be about a world where once a child reaches a certain age a strange creature comes to them. No one actually knows where these creatures come from, but they seem to be the representation of the child’s personality and dreams and they grow and develop as the child does. Children with similar personalities or similar dreams would have creatures that share some of the same characteristics, but other than that every single creature looks different. The story might be about one of the children who is just receiving their creature or about an adult who has grown used to their creature and has some sort of problem involving it.
That’s the idea I’d like to go with right now, but I will probably make changes to it in the future.
