Write About Your Father
Dads are great, as everyone who is lucky enough to have a Dad knows. They're also usually good characters to draw from. What makes your father tick? How was he raised, in his different generation, and how do you think that has shaped who he is? What does he want for you? Has he ever fought in a war? These questions are just ways to get you started in thinking about details. It's always better to be specific. Don't just say, "My Dad's great --" what makes him great?
