In Master Man, Shadusa boasts about being stronger than anyone else, then learns his lesson when he meets someone who is even stronger.

See if you can write a different story on the same pattern. Invent a character who thinks he or she is the best of something. Then make up a meeting with someone who is even better.

Share your writing with others by reading it aloud or acting it out together.
