Playing Off Assumptions

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

I’ve gotten through all the books in the Please Don’t Tell My Parents I’m A Super Villain series by Richard Roberts this week. The audiobooks were available through the Hoopla app so I listened to them on my way to and from work. The protagonist is only thirteen which is much younger than I generally read lately. But they were entertaining all the same. As you can probably guess from the title the protagonist has a secret life as a super villain. She gets away with most of it because of the adult tendency to underestimate those younger than them and make assumptions that they know best. Write a scene where your character can benefit from some assumptions made about her. Does she take advantage of these assumptions or does she correct them?

Keep Dreaming Beautiful Thinkers,

The Boy In The Heart Shades
