You must correctly write a sentence using "If I were she," or "If I were he."
You must have a book title in your story.
You may share this on google docs when you have finished. Thank you.

Hello students, Mr. Haynes here. This is your last creative writing assignment this quarter. Take the paragraphs above as a starting point for your story. Make sure to look back on Brainhoney on the papers you just submitted and check for the mistakes you made previously so you won’t make them on this paper. In order to save time and space, you may copy the very last line, “Oh Emperor, Emperor, a miracle.” This paper should be at least two pages long but no more than four with twelve point font, double spacing. The due date is yet to be determined. Good luck and have fun.
