Reflections about creativity, the writing process, and the writing life.
Since the Oscars in February the video about the Bechdel Test has been passed around on Facebook, Twitter, and via email. A couple days ago I told a friend of mine about the test. He teaches film but does not have Facebook. Since then the Bechdel Test has been on my mind.
To pass the Bechdel Test a story needs to have at least two female characters with names who talk to each other about something other than a man.
My story “Family Picnic Magic” is published in this anthology featuring new writers:
Bare Elements: A community approach to narrative non-fiction
