Childhood Hero

Is there anyone you looked up to as a child that you’re now embarrassed about? Is your childhood hero still your hero?

Create a character who has similar traits to your childhood hero, or traits that you wished you had when you were a child.

Take this writing prompt for a spin:

  • Think about the traits that you idealized as a child, and how they differ from what you idealize now.
  • In what ways would having exaggerated strengths come to hinder someone in day to day life?
  • What are some of the misconceptions about your childhood “hero”?
