One of the first things that I liked about your story was your use of a metaphor at the beginning: "Leah sat in a sea of wheat." It's very difficult to come up with original metaphors and you chose a great one to describe the largeness of the field in comparison to Leah.

I also liked that you shared what Leah was feeling in that moment: "She was tired of being excluded. Against her will, this was the family that she was stuck with."
This is an excellent frame for the beginning of your story and where you want to carry it in the future; the source of Leah's inner and outer conflict, which involves family.

One suggestion that I had which could be helpful would be to separate lines of dialogue. For example:
Simeon asked, "Why can't little Levi come with us?"
Reuben looked at his brother and laughed. "He's too young, Simeon, don't you know that already?"

I think that it would help your readers to tell different characters' words apart.
Please, let me know if this advice is helpful! I hope that I haven't said too much at once! You're a very talented writer!

Hi dadjokes! Today I was learning about the story of Joseph and thought I'd give you some tips on avoiding some mistakes that people often make when telling the story of Joseph.

1. Joseph was a spoiled brat. (Seriously, with all that favoritism he received, it's no wonder)
2. He was a tattletale. (Genesis 37:2 says: "At seventeen years of age, Joseph tended sheep with his brothers. The young man was working with the sons of Bilhah and Zilpah, his father’s wives, and he brought a bad report about them to their father.")
3. He was boastful. (He didn't need to rub it in his brothers' faces about those dreams he got)
4. When his brothers came from their home to Egypt to get food, Joseph might not have forgiven them completely yet. (Note how he treats them at first when they come. It isn't until after he realizes that they've changed that he is finally nice to them.)

I hope this helps make your book even more realistic when you get to the Joseph parts. I'm excited to see how you'll depict the different characters! Honestly, I had never really thought of them as unique, individual people until I started reading Jacob's Children.

NEW QUESTION!
First, in the writing section of the talent showcase Chapter 4 is out.
Second, the question. In terms of the story, it's mostly been short stories introducing the family and personalities of some of them. I've also been doing a lot of bible research about the tribes which gave me ideas for how to form their character using my *Creative Liberty*. It's likely that I will start digging into some plots starting with dealing with moving (Genesis 31) and their take on Jacob's change to Israel. Debating whether or not to write about Genesis 34.

Any suggestions?

Hi dadjokes! I'm really looking forward to reading Chapter 4 of your story in the Talent Showcase! :cheer:
I think that researching Biblical tribes is a great idea!
It's a superb way of gaining more insights into the lives and cultural backgrounds of your characters: who they would have known, how large their families were, and expected social customs for each family member.
If you decide to write about Genesis 34, I would be careful not to include details which could be very graphic or disturbing for younger audiences.
This is just a friendly suggestion. Not matter what you decide, I know that you'll do a great job!

P.S. "Creative Liberty," is such a great phrase! How did you come up with it? :)

Ooh. That's tough. I'd say go for it, since there are some valuable lessons in chapter 34. Plus, it will help with character-building, and showing why there wasn't a tribe of Levi or Simeon.
But, if you don't feel comfortable writing it, you could skip it.

There was a tribe of Simeon. And Levi wasn't a tribe for different reasons.

My bad. There is a tribe of Simeon.
But I’ll have to study why Levi wasn’t a tribe. I know Jacob didn’t give him or Simeon because they were rash and violent . . .

idk my mom uses it a lot when we're watching some bible movie that's not completely "Biblically accurate". Or the writers added stuff that wasn't necessarily in the bible. I don't know where she got it from...

From what I've read, Jacob was told that he should tithe his sons. He counted his sons and Levi came up tenth.
Personally, I think there is a more reasonable explanation than that, but I won't dismiss this claim.

The Levites weren't a tribe. In fact, the tribes of Levi and Joseph were replaced with Mannaseh and Ephraim. Plus, the Levites received no inheritance in the Promised Land.

But isn't Levi a tribe? Sorry, my Sabbath school doesn't talk about those Bible stories anymore, we just talk about fixing modern-life problems with a Biblical approach and whatnot. Khriz, do you know about this Levi-tribe-thingamajiggy?

I'm not Khriz but i do know a bit... anyways I found this on the internet:

According to the Bible, the Tribe of Levi is one of the tribes of Israel, traditionally descended from Levi, son of Jacob. The descendants of Aaron, who was the first kohen gadol (high priest) of Israel, were designated as the priestly class, the Kohanim.

The levites were also the first to step forward I believe when they asked about which side are you on when they made the idol in the desert when Moses went for the commandments which is also why they are the preists
