Friends are interesting… how they’re made, how they continue, and how they end (if they do).
I met my best friend on the first day of first grade. Another girl slammed her hand in her desk, and I ran over to help. From that day on, we were pretty much inseparable. I’m not really sure why. Back then, she was quiet and I was outgoing, so maybe that’s the why of it. We didn’t have all that much in common, but we clicked. I was a jerk in high school, and our friendship almost ended, but she forgave me (eventually) and we just got stronger. Nowadays, we talk on the phone once a week and occasionally keep in touch via Facebook. There were years when we didn’t talk on the phone at all, but when we did, it was like we just talked yesterday.
So, for the writing prompt… write about a friendship. It can be a good one, a bad one, or a learning experience. It could be a childhood friend or one from adulthood. How did you (or your character) meet them? Why did you (or they) become friends instead of acquaintances? Do you (or they) continue to keep in touch? Why or why not? If the friendship ended, what happened?
