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!
