Cork Animal Care Society - anyone like writing? :D

Post by Zoundz on Thu Sep 29, 2011 7:25 pm

OK... got into a little chatsy with CACS on Facebook, and discovered they are looking for pieces for a boolket they have coming out to raise money. It would be awesome publicity for rats to have a piece in there, and it needs to be very informative, but also a creative 'fictional' piece, rather than informational writing.

Anyone here want to have a stab at something? Perhaps we could write it together? Any ideas people think should be included? I think there definitely needs to be a 'not buying from petshops' thing. Perhaps we could write the story from a child's point of view? Or the rats involved? Smile

Anyway - anyone think they'd be up for doing the writing part? If not, I will - as I'm not sure how much time we have! Smile

I think the child's and the rat's POV are really good ideas. Maybe we can do something that's the same story from both angles? Maybe this is my angsty brain but it would be good to weave in a not buying from petshops message if it were maybe a child buying an unusual pet and being excited to take him home and show him off to their friends, taking him round on his shoulder etc and then maybe from the rats perspective, leaving all his brothers and changing places so rapidly, the petshop tank not being comfy, and he loves the child but he has nothing else - no other friends etc.

I'd offer to write but a) it wouldn't get done for about a year and b) I'm rubbish at keeping anything short. I'll co write/ bounce ideas about with someone though

Sounds good to me - I think we need to be a bit heavier on the not buying form petshops thing though... that maybe child buys rats from a petshop - one gets sick and dies and the other has a litter of babies. Child contacts local breeder who helps to raise the litter, and find good homes for the babies? Smile

No, nothing's come of it - if you#d like to write something, even if ACS doesn't take it on, we would happily feature it here and submit it to a few places! Grin
