b.) Reaction of bromine with itself (disproportionation)in aqueous solution:

Br2 (l) ---> BrO3(^-1) (aq) + Br(^-1) (aq)

How would I write out the half reactions if I only have one reactant?

You separate the two reactions. Br2(l) -> BrO3(^-1) (aq) and Br2(l) -> Br(^-1) (aq) and balance each separately.
