A Foiled Friday Fun

Sad news from across the pond today. . . Richard Griffiths, the actor who played Uncle Vernon in the Harry Potter movies, has passed on to the Great Theater in the Sky.  Today’s Friday Fun is in memory of a terrific award-winning actor who brought a tremendous character to life on the big screen.

Here’s your creative writing prompt for this week.  First, think of a hero for a story.  You won’t necessarily be writing about your hero; just come up with a basic idea of him/her.  Your real assignment is the foil.  A foil is character who makes your hero seem greater by comparison.  In a paragraph or so, describe your foil.  Give us the physical details as well as the personality traits.  Show how your foil would be opposite to your hero.

Happy writing, Muggles!
