The Dreamer In The Brightest Night And The Outsiders

Decent Essays

Do you wish some things were different? If you could control events to take and not occur would you? In these stories I have read this quarter, (The Brightest Night and The Outsiders) there are loads of examples of the realist vs. the dreamer. The dreamer is the one who envisages about what things could be like, and what we don’t have. the realist is set and content with what we have and believes most new ideas or motives are ‘impossible’. We are good as a mix, but be must take more to our dreamer side, the side where our creativity and daring self comes out.

The dragonets--Clay, Starflight, Tsunami, Sunny, and Glory--showed us how essential dreamers are, Mr. Ferris showed us how creativity
