Animal Autobiography

What would your life be like if you were a baby harp seal?

How would you describe yourself if you were a Western Diamondback Rattlesnake living in a desert canyon in Utah?

How would you feel if you were the stingray who killed Steve Irwin?

Write a first person Ficly in which you anthropomorphize a past or present fellow traveler on Spaceship Earth. From the viewpoint of your pet or any other animal, bird or fish living or extinct, infuse life and personality into your narrator as he, she or it tells the tale.

Be accurate in your details and descriptions – in other words, research the animal you will portray.

Most of all, have fun with this challenge, because that is what is intended. It is an exercise in description that has helped me many times across a variety of stories.

Because of the difficulty offered, I am making this a 15 day challenge. Plenty of time, ficleers, to come up with the best possibl entry.

Good luck!
