Have you ever noticed that many fairy tales seem to have an evil stepmother? Kind of gives the new woman a bad rap, doesn’t it? It makes me wonder if this is typical female behaviour–they are jealous of anything that takes time and attention away from their man. All those nice women in the world must hang their heads in shame when they read yet another evil stepmother story.
So for today’s prompt, write something where people presume the new woman (she doesn’t have to be a step-mother) is nasty/mean/evil. What would a person have to say or do to prove they aren’t like that? Would this be a comedy? Something serious?
