Ranting kid

If your protagonist is also the narrator, you’re going to get opinions. Some of those opinions are going to be strong. Get ready for a rant!

Whether it’s boasting or ranting it’s presented in a conversational style using blunt language, like it’s a speech they’ve been preparing for a while and can finally get off their chest.

Like I said, I’ll be famous one day, but for now I’m stuck in high school with a bunch of morons.

I know I’ve only been in his class for two weeks but, if you ask me, I’m guessing I’ll have to buy some toothpicks to prop my eyes open if I’m going to stay awake in Mr Hamm’s boring media lessons in future.

In my humble opinion, I reckon anyone who can make something as cool as media studies as snooze-inducing as this needs a round of applause. It’s a gift. Around me are a bunch of kids aching to write and film and get their creativity out there and so far all we’ve done is doze off in front of a whiteboard to him droning on about film analysis.

And they wonder why people change subjects.

Write a rant, based on the photograph. Have your narrator use conversational language, and give blunt and strongly worded opinions.
