Day 4: Mapping Out Writing Time: Empowerment

I’ve decided it’s time to change Princess Rock Star’s name, to send her some empowerment juju. It’s time to conquer kindergarten. Going forward, she’ll be Wonder Girl, named for her favorite super heroine, Wonder Woman.

Wonder Girl will be turning six this month. She wants a Wonder Woman theme party. Do you know how hard it is to find Wonder Woman theme party favors? Especially ones that parents of five-year-olds will think are appropriate? Why do female superheroes have to be so scantily clad and buxom?

Help! Any ideas would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

Write-a-Scene Writing Prompt: What empowers your protagonist? Write a scene where he/she is confronted by an ugly situation and handles it with ease. What is his/her reaction? Is this the first time your protagonist feels empowerment? Or is it pretty much routine? This can be an emotionally charged scene, so remember to increase conflict and emotion!

Consider yourself warned: I write books about rebels. I'm also a postergirlz for readergirlz, a literary advisory group for teens. Who knew going back to the teenage years would be so rewarding?
