1. For each character write a brief paragraph explaining what impact this fictional character has had on our culture. Why is this character so fascinating? Important? Misunderstood? Understood?

Well Catwoman side view on this whole thing is that women should be respected and understood and that’s where this show is going really. And the impact that she has on our culture is that women should technically be treated as much as the men are. This character is so fascinating because she’s showing us the true side of womanhood. To women she’s understood, to men she’s not.
Bugs bunny he made my life when his cartoon came out I was this happy 2 year old watching bugs bunny and just laughed at everything he did or still does I love him to death. This character is so fascinating because he made me laugh and he still does and I would do anything to watch him again. Bugs bunny is most importantly understood because he made all of us kids laugh our eyes out.

2. Once you have done that, think about characters you have met in books, seen in movies or plays, or watched on TV. Pick one that is of particular interest to you. Write an entry in which you explain why this character is important to our culture in your opinion. What qualities does this character possess that makes him/her/it so intriguing? Why is this character important to our society (not just a small group of fans)?

The most character that caught my eye the most is Cinderella because I’ve seen her in movies and cartoons and she’s treated in a way that’s unimaginable because her step mom is an idiot and her seems like nothings going on when it’s really happening right under his nose. This character is important to me because when I was little I always thought there is a thing as a happy ending. This character is important to our culture because she’s just Cinderella and she’s being her self. The thing that made Cinderella intriguing was her looks and her beauty. This character is important to our society because little kids read her and books and also grownups.

Characteristics of a well-told story
We all have heard and read stories. It is one of the first things many parents do with their kids.Part 1: Why in childhood?Why are stories so important to childhood? Why do people read stories to kids? In childhood because the stories that we hear amazes us and that's one part of us. Stories are important to childhood because we love hearing about it. I really think people read stories for us because they like it or try to put us to sleep or try to shut us up.

What do the kids get out of this experience? What kinds of things do kids learn from the actual stories and from the experience? The experiences they get enjoying their parents reading to them. They thing that these things come through in real life when they really don't.
Part 2: Why later in life?Why do older people (high school and beyond) read stories? What do these readers get out of this experience? What kinds of things do older reader learn from the actual stories? Later in because that's how it is. Because some enjoy reading books and some just keeps them calm. Older people it just calms there minds.
Part 3: Why in our nation?Why are stories so important to our nation? The New York Times Best Seller lists are one of the most powerful media tools in the world. People flock to buy the books listed there. How do stories fit into the fabric of our national identity? How do stories people write create a forum for the discussion of concerns and issues in our nation? What do stories allow people (the writer and the reader) to do? In our nation because some enjoying reading. Stories are important because we love reading them. The stories allow reader to get the visual of the stories.
Part 4: Your stories What were some stories you remember from your childhood? Why do you think these ones stand out? Think of actual books as well as stories you were told orally by people. Whom do you connect to these stories? Some of the stories that I remember from my childhood is Cinderella, Snowwhite, and Beauty and the Beast. I connect my stories to my mom because she was just like a princess when she was little.
Part 5: Characteristics of a well-told story Develop a list of 7-10 characteristics that stories should have. Be specific. Do not just say that "stories should have good characters." What makes a character good? Think about what the author should do and how the reader should feel when reading. 1. Intro. 2. Begining. 3. Rising action. 4. Climax. 5. Falling action. 6. Resoultion. 7. Ending.

blog #1

The writer's adage is as follows:Reading is breathing in; writing is breathing out.Why is reading so crucial for a writer? Whenever I've heard writers speak--be it playwrights, novelists, or poets--they talk about the importance of reading. In Pat Conroy's memoir My Losing Season, in fact, he goes into great depth about the books he was devouring at that point in his life and what they meant to him.
Because it's takes time for the author to write a story and it takes great thinking.

The theme that i write has to be important because it expresses me..
What might be a theme that you'd consider communicating through your play.

Great works of literature can last a long time. Jane Austen's novels (including Pride and Prejudice, Emma, and Sense and Sensibility) are still popular almost 200 years after they were first published.
