Jaycees Assemble!

It…doesn’t quite have the same ring to it. We’ll have to come up with something else. For those of you who don’t know, that’s a blatant rip-off of the slogan used by the Avengers, from Marvel Comics. As we get ready to be heroes next year, it’s time to reflect. Pick up a pen, open your document program, or hire a stenographer. Whatever method you use, here comes the writing challenge:

Pick two heroes: one “real life” person you know and one fictional hero. Write about both of them. In 2,000 words or less.

Here’s some questions to help your brain:

How are your two heroes different? How are they the same? Does your “real life” hero like your fictional hero? Are you like either of your heroes?

You don’t have to answer these questions – but they might help you get started. The contest deadline is December 15 (the date of the GMM). Send entries online to Heather OR bring a printed copy to the meeting!

Winner will be determined by the 2011 Board of Directors. There will be a prize.
