This is a character challenge. Here is how it works:

1. I will have a list below that includes both books and movies, you are to choose the one you want, and leave it in a comment below. Iwill write back to it telling you what character out of it you have to work with. (that is one book OR one movie... not one of both)

2. You are to use that character and write a short story with them as the lead. You can make them do whatever you want them to. But, you have to keep them in the same time period and keep as many themes from the main story as you can.

3. You can also add more characters, but the one i give you has to be the protagonist.

4. If you like, you can just rewrite part of the work from that person's point of view... what you do with the character is up to you. Just remember that you cant change them. They have to maintain the same morals, traits, and characteristics.

So, i think that should explain it. If you have any more questions dont hesitate to ask.

OH WAIT!! I almost forgot prizes!
