Animal Alter-Ego

Full Details

“Develop the skin of an armadillo,” shared YA author and flash fiction expert Tara Lynn Masih (who is also a WtW guest judge!) in a recent interview for the WtW blog, “you want to be tender enough to take in some helpful criticism, but tough enough to handle the bad and discard what isn’t helpful.”
Masih’s advice relates to the writing process, but we’d like to know, dear writers: In writing OR in life, what animal is your alter ego? Are you playful and strong like an elephant? Cunning and resourceful like a hawk? Energetic and honest like a rabbit?

For this prompt, dive into the similarities between you and the animal that best represents you.
