Writing prompt: What was the name of your first childhood pet? Why did you choose this name? Were you hoping for a dog and got a frog instead? Describe your pet’s fur, shell—or lack thereof—and what s/he looked like. What do you remember most about this pet, and what did it mean to you as a friend? What did you learn from taking care of your friend? If you didn’t have a childhood pet, did you want one? If so, what kind? If you felt deprived because you never had a pet, create a virtual one. Create several.
