My feminine protagonists are the narrators in first voice and the present tense
BECAUSE as a child and young adult, I was a
--> female; second to a male;
--> lady; second to a lad;
--> woman; second to the man;
--> she or her; second to he;
---> heroine; second the hero!
Always second to male, lad, man, he, and hero, who were and still are the main narrators. He leads and solves the problems and dilemmas of our the world, unfortunately.
A girl and young adult pushed from the frame because of my sex. I needed a place in the story, in the plot. So I write from my feminine irrate voice - about strong maidens or older matrons, who battled against oppression by cause by 'him'.
I write about strong maidens or matrons who overcome tyranny and suppression by facing ignorant dominance. My protagonists make change in their worlds for us to witness so we can make changes in our feminine lives.
In my last piece, PURSUED, a Russian Folktale,
the ugly frog skin of a princess is burnt by a selfish prince, a fool. This young male needed to view what his enchantment was.The fool does not understand balance and equality in a partnership only that female's beauty is for his prestige.
A villain, a male antagonist, can devour a story. A heavy, destructive, villain dominates. I figure she or her needs to conquer his hateful messages as does Faery Rhyonna
, who rids Zzuf from her realm.
