Strong Women (exclamation point) !!!

Apparently I’m going to put off working on my book for the entire day, and I’m going to procrastinate by writing stuff here.


I’m working on a female character who is downtrodden and beaten, and am not as pleased with her as I was with my last female character who was strong, proud, determined, and driven. What is it that draws us to strong women?

I think of female characters from book and movies and always come up with women who have backbone, substance, grit. I have a hard time remembering any of the wimpy, whiny girls.

Off the top of my head, I love (in no particular order):

Sally Field in Steel Magnolias and Norma Rae

Angelina Jolie in Tomb Raider and every other movie she has played in

even Alicia Silverstone in Clueless (LOVE her!)


What is it about these characters that is so intriguing?

Who are your favorite female heroines?
