Writing Prompt: Trading Places

This week’s Write On Writing Prompt comes to us from GuardoftheWorlds (nice screen name!) who wants to know:

What is your all time favorite book/movie character, and would you like to trade places with him or her for one day?


Who is one person you would like to either trade places with or eat dinner with?

Great questions! One of my all time favorite characters is Meg from A Wrinkle in Time. I would totally trade places with her for a day. Of course this would mean crossing the 4th Dimension to travel through time and outer space. Woo hoo!

Then a person I’d love to trade places with would be Kate Middleton. Imagine being a real princess for a day (although technically she is now the Duchess of Cambridge). All the traveling, charity work, a chance to make a real difference, and don’t forget royal parties and living in a castle!

Who would you guys pick? Inquiring minds, like GuardoftheWorlds, want to know. Leave your answers in the Comments below.

    Book/movie character: Arrietty from The Secret World of Arrietty (which is coming out on DVD in 3 DAYS!!!!!!!!!! EEEEEEEE!) because it would be cool to be a Borrower.

    Great idea about Mary although wouldn’t Ma or Pa have more authority? Anyways, I would switch places with Piper in Heroes of Olympus because she’s good friends with Annabeth and Annabeth IS THE BEST! you should do a writing prompt on who is the best main character of all time and why…
