This is a very good writing prompt. Often times when I write, I find myself wondering how some of the characters, themes, or topics will be received, particularly by some of my family members. But with a prompt like this, you just go for it; you tackle those topics that will have some complaints because you have the free reign to do so. I highly recommend taking that leap and just going for it — I’m sure you will find it liberating. It might even give you the courage to take risks and tackle your stories the way you envision them without the fear of any backlash. Let’s face it as writers we will always face backlash, because we can’t win them all.
