In your blog post #7, you are going to make the most of the vocabulary related to describing people's appearance, character and relationships.
Before you start another chapter in a book of your creativity, take a closer look at the vocabulary from your wordlist used in appropriate context in your coursebooks:
- English Vocabulary in Use. Pre-Intermediate and Intermediate: Units 43, 44, 46

In your blog post, you have to create a story using comic strips.
Your story should include:
- description of characters;
- some details of their relationship (friendship, romance, parent-child etc; date, falling out, argument etc);
- dialogs and conversations between characters.
Conversations and dialogs will be presented in a form of comic strips created in WittyComics or BitStrips. If you wish to present the whole story as a comic strip, you certainly can do this. Otherwise, include at least 3 comic strips in your story.
Keep your story within 150-180 word limit and take advantage of active vocabulary (20-25 items, as usual).
