For this week’s writing prompt, we’re going to explore your main character and their relationship with animals. Lots of books have animal sidekicks, and if you’re still in the process of character building, this could be a fun exercise!
Let’s pretend your main character is going to an animal shelter, perhaps one like in the Disney movie, “Lilo + Stitch.” What kind of animal do they pick? What kind of personality does the animal have? How does it interact with the main character? Does the main character’s friends/family like the animal? What happens on the way home from the shelter?
