My piece “Wedding Fantasy Barbie is Yelling” in New Delta Review begins, “The Glamour Corvette is parked in the driveway. Inside, Wedding Fantasy Barbie and Fashion Jeans Barbie are screaming at each other…”
This piece came from a writing prompt I didn’t like – “two people yelling at each other in a car” – because all I could think of was parental fighting, so I thought, okay, what if it’s not a person at all? What if it’s two Barbies? And I love the result.
