For today's challenge I want you to write a story based around someone who is in a position where they don't want to be, but are stuck for one reason or another.  This is a very vague challenge so the possibilities are endless!  The purpose of this challenge is to become further acquainted with how to create character purpose and drive.  Be sure to fully emphasize as to why your character doesn't want to be in the position that they are in and why they are stuck in the first place.  This is also a good opportunity to create character relationship between two characters.

This is a great opportunity to practice backstory for your characters!

One example of this is when Meg in "Hercules" is on Hates side but she is stuck in that position and is really for Hercules.  

Get writing and break out that creativity!
