Journal #1
Answer the following in 5-6 sentences.

Option A
Describe a time when you were heroic...Was this a spontaneous act or something that you thought about for some time? What were the obstacles to your success? Were there any foes (people going against you)?
Option B
If you haven't been heroic then answer the following...
What do you think are qualities in you that could help you to
act heroically? If you were to compare yourself to any other hero, who would it be?
Part One -

1) During the exposition, the hero is in the ordinary world
