My Created Character

Short story By: Ben Paul

I wrote this for an assignment given in my English class at SWHS. I thought about what I like to do or what I would like to do and made some of the things up. I hear a lot about parents getting relocated, either in the army or their job, so I decided to make something like that. I picked Australia because it’s a cool place to be. I picked Josh as a sporty kind of person. The reason why he is a surfer is because that is a major sport in Australia and the other countries that I listed. Since his family and Josh visit America every year, it meant that they missed people there. Also, I love to play guitar so I made Josh resemble me in that way. I got the part where they play in a band because I think it was on a Disney Channel show that the main character did that or maybe somewhere else, like a book I that read. I thought it would be cool to talk about him and his dad going on an outing once a week. This suggested that they were very close. I showed Josh’s love for his dog by his dedication to take it for a walk every morning before school. He likes to play football( soccer) because that’s a popular sport there and also my favorite.

My Created Character

My character is 16 years old and his name is Josh Brannet. He has brown hair. He has dark blue eyes and tanned skin. He lives in Sydney, Australia. Josh was born in Los Angeles, California in the United States. When he was 3 years old, his family moved to Sydney because of his father's job relocation. Every year, Josh and his family go back to Connecticut to visit his grandparents and his old brother James, who goes to college at Yale and their many friends. Josh loves to go to the beach and surf against his friends. He has competed in many surfing competitions. He has won 13 trophies at the championships. Josh has been named the Teen surfer of the year 2 times in a row. He has traveled to surf at many different parts of Australia and has been to various parts of the world including South Africa, France, England, Scotland, Ireland, Morocco, New Zealand, Japan, Indonesia, and Fiji. Josh loves to play guitar with his band. They perform at a restaurant in downtown Sydney, once a week. Every Saturday, he and his dad take their motorboat out and go snorkeling in ocean. When they find a good location, they jump in and try to find as many oceanic creatures that they can find. Josh has seen whales, turtles, and many schools of fish. After that, they spend a few hours relaxing in their pool. Josh's favorite sport, apart from surfing, is football (soccer). On Sundays, they join their friends for a few hours playing a football match. Each day, early in the morning, Josh takes his 8 month old black lab puppy for a walk. Then he goes to Westfield Sports High School. He plays football on his J-Varsity team. They have gone to the championships two times in a row and they look like they are going this year too, with a record of 8-1.

Thank you all for reading,
