Writingprompt_generic When I was young, I never imagined that I would be working for the ultimate website of all awesomeness when I grew up. I couldn’t imagine it because when I was young, the Internet hadn’t even been invented yet! (Imagine having to grow up without the STACKS!) Well, I got lucky and landed my dream job at Scholastic, but for today’s Writing Prompt, I want to hear from you.

What is your Future Dream Job?

Writer? Veterinarian? Chef? Librarian? Solar Power Engineer? Auror? (We might discover that magic is real! You never know!) Dream about your perfect world, what kinds of things it will have in it, and then imagine your dream job in it! I can’t wait to hear all the ways you are going to grow up and change the world!

  15. afternoonpotatochips1

    I would love to be a rocket scientist! It would be a great moment of happiness when your rocket lifts off.

  16. Taylor

    My dream jobs would be either an actress or an author. I would love to be able to enter a different world each time I act, and acting is a very natural thing for me (I’m not saying I’m really good at it.) I love writing, though. Either job and I would be happy.

  17. emeraldcat40

    Author/artists. Author because I love writing and reading. Artists because I’m really good at drawing dragons,people,animals,and the sky. (If I do say so myself!)

  18. Patricia

    I’m hoping to become an author by the time I’m sixteen.(It doesn’t sound so ambitous if you remember there are authors younger than that.) However, I am looking forward to getting a double major in astronomy and archeology.

  19. devynah

    well when i grow up i either want to be a poet,singer or a fashion designer.It doesn’t really matter what career i pursue i just want one of my choices mentioned.I’d like to be a poet because i enjoy writing poem in my spare time.But,in the other hand being a singer would be a amazing experience considering many singers accumulate fans andmake tons of hit songs!Also fashion designing is quite enjoyable since other insividuals can wear MY stlyes.So for now I will just focus on being a twelve year old girl and not grow up too fast!tootles..lol

  20. crazywizard10

  22. Katie

    I want to be an author when I grow up. I know magic already exists so I have some alternatives at hand.

  23. Lilyluna411

    My dream job would be to become an author. To inspire readers for generations, to weave a web of the fantastical and otherworldly, to create something from nothing but words, which after all, are our greatest source of inexhaustible magic :) And most of all, because when I settle down to retirement some time in the years to come, I want to be able to say I left a handprint on humanity, not the trace of fingertips

  24. orangemonkey18

    I would work in a resteraunt and save all the money i can for peaple who need houses familys and food

  25. hiphoph

    I want to be either one of two things. A animal behaviorist so I can study animals, which to get more into detail I’m really interested in marine mammals (most of all dolphins). I’ve been reading books and watching movies on real people who swim with dolphins everyday. It’s amazing,for that I want to swim with wild dolphins, not the ones that do shows.
    The other thing I would love to be is a dancer.
    I love all types of dance and I’ve learned how to do:
    Tap,Hiphop,Jazz,Broadway,Modern,Ballet,a Indonesian dance,ballroom (salsa,tango,rumba,waltz…).
    I haven’t done pointe though…
    But I love dancing too. Just the feeling when you do a jump and land it right, or in Broadway you get to be a charecter and also, sometimes, a comedian. I love to dance.
