I’m writing a short story about kids about ages 4-9 (about primary school age)and their imaginations. it’s due in for for next week and ive only just started ok moving on
Basically, I’m curious as to what kind of stories you guys wrote as kids, if you wrote any at all. And if you had any imaginary friends, what were they like?
I’ve lost most my primary school books, but I remember the classic ‘woohoo look at me talking to animals’ followed by ‘…and then I woke up and it was a dream the whole time’, a lot of horse stories and several thousand inspired by superheroes and creepypastas. One of my friends and I did an entire series on ‘The Adventures of Blenderman & Co’. I still feel bad for making my teachers mark those ones. Keep in mind that I wrote these from ages 6-10, and I’m now 14, still feeling guilty.
No surprises here, I had tons of imaginary friends. They were all pretty… normal, though. The ones I invented myself, anyway. I would just play by myself and pretend I was with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles; I was completely obsessed with them. I even tried to turn one of my worlds into a story on episode when I was about 10 Yes, 10. What can I say? I was born a bad boy. It was a total shitshow. I found it on my old email last month, and I’m ever grateful that I never published it.
