I’m a huge fan of Parks and Recreation, and while it is March and not Feb. 13, I felt Leslie Knope’s Galentine’s Day would make a great foundation for “Women in Fiction” Week’s writing prompt.
You will be gathering your fictional women (from one book/story or across a collection of your works) for a Galentine’s Day celebration. They will talk with each and interact with each other, for better or for worse depending on their relationships. Conversations should pass the Bechdel Test, or not center around the men in their lives (Brief mentions are OK). Use this prompt as a means to explore character relationships and, of course, have fun! If you choose to share your response to the prompt on your blog, please share a link in the comments below — I’d love to see them.
