This week was the writing week where we got to create our characters that we will be using throughout the semester.
I was a little slow on the Daily Creates this week and went down to the wire completing the last one today. But they are always an adventure.
I also got to create my character Agent Fawn. I had a lot of fun creating the character dossier thought I also spent a lot of time trying to figure out exactly how I wanted my character to be or who they would be.
Another exciting part of exploring my character was completing the assignment Examining the spy. Admittedly I wrote the assignment so it was my obvious choice from the list of suggestions because I really wanted to complete it. I found my character came out of the idea of real life spies more than fictional spies after carefully examining her.
We also had to watch a bunch of video this week which was great but I might have underestimated how long movies are.
I did a blog post on the many tv shows and films in the secret agent genre, complicatedly titled The Hunt for Spy Kids Avengers.
I also took on the shape of storytelling assignment with Shape that Story post. Where I complicate how Vonnegut’s theory works within the story I analyzed.
Now its time to talk about my 8 STARS. Looking through all the assignments I found it interesting how so many assignments are either 4 or 2 stars in general. (I spent a lot of time trying to decide which ones to take on this week.)
2 stars- The first one I tried my hand at was writing the ending to a wrong choice on a choose your own adventure story. I loved the creativity in all these assignments but was hyped for this one in particular. I wrote my Bad Choice ending and man was it a bad choice.
4 1/2 stars- The next take on was creating the inner monologue of a tool. The assignment suggested trying to keep it vague enough to make you guess about the tool and I tried that approach.
2 stars- To round up to the 8th star I completed the Recipe Haiku challenge. I went with a simple recipe but a standard I eat when I am home.
I love looking at other people’s work but I am still getting the hang of commenting and being constructive.
I enjoyed this particular post on commonalities in the spy genre because it approached it in a different way and commented about that.
I also commented on Spies Need Nostalgia too
I also commented on a poem parody as well.
Also about Spy Kids as a spy movie choice.
