Write a lengthy, intense story about a guy who grows to two miles tall. The story is told by his friend who is caught up in the natural, yet magnified details of his friend's giant body. Focus on the human body and visual descriptions. Looking for very rich, lengthy visual details. **I'm hoping to find someone who can use a real male person they know as a model for this story, meaning you would be studying and writing about his entire body in very rich detail.** *OR* Write about yourself growing to two miles tall. This would be a strong focus on your own body, head to toe.
