Running low on ideas for your next story? If so, try observing your dogs for a while. They might be able to ignite your creativity and give you new ideas for a novel or short story. After all, it is not new for writers to be inspired by the pets they had (or wished they had). In fact, the screenplay for the 2008 film Marley & Me was based on an autobiography written by journalist John Grogan about the 13 years he and his family spent with a yellow Labrador Retriever named Marley. On the other hand, the well-known children’s book series Clifford the Big Red Dog was made because of its author Norman Bridwell’s childhood desire for a dog the size of a horse.
