Challenge Two!
Why do some use ‘a’ and others omit the ‘a’ in front of the vocabulary word?

No 'a' - idea: only one in the world. Only one Dr. J, or Snow White, Iron man; (proper nouns).

Using  'a' idea: more than one commonly in the world.  Generic name - there are lots of cats, witches, fairies, and princesses in the world even though the idea is imaginary in some cases like witches, etc. (countable nouns).
