Writing Prompt: Pick A Princess

liwayway-560x792 We all love a good Disney movie (c’mon, you don’t have to say it out loud, just allow yourself to admit it internally), but just as much I love the website Rejected Princesses: an ever-expanding list of historical (and mythical) women who Disney hasn’t gotten around to yet (I’m giving them the benefit of the doubt here).

So the prompt this month is go through their archives and find a princess you like. You don’t have to be historically accurate (though I’d love to see some well-researched historical fiction born of this), but keep to the essence and spirit of her character.

Go, write, post, and link in the comments.

    I’ve always liked Aurora, but it may just have been Maleficent that ignited my imagination. Nothing better than a vengeful fairy!

    Can you tell if they are different? When you line up their bodies in animated form they all have the same physical shape the only thing that changes is their hairstyle. I’m sure there are some homely princesses in history but they’re the ones who’ll never appear in Disney.
