Really excited to be posting this! Been working on these little illustrations of some of the most influential female writers over the past few days, and this is the result! I hope you like them, hopefully I’ll be able to post something (arguably) even more exciting soon to do with them, and how they play a role in decorating my new uni room!
Feel free to print these off if you like, cut and stick them wherever, I do not mind at all, they are my gift to you. x
Since I will have all my uni stuff done after March 11th before one last final on April 6th, I will have a lot of time to read. My TBR contains:
> Jane Austen - pride and prejudices > Rick Riordan - the last olympian > Sarah J. Maas - heir of fire > Ruta Sepetys - salt to the see > Rick Riordan - the lost hero > Patrick Ness - the rest of us just live here

I’m on a bit of a female empowerment bender at the moment having watched ‘Suffragette’ (I know it’s not perfect particularly in racial terms but I still found it incredibly moving and powerful) and having attended a charity night fund-raising to keep girls in developing countries in high school- we saw all 12 girls being sponsored and while they are AMAZING young women I still felt so angry that they had to pay so much for education that they couldn’t actually attend school without sponsorship- education should be free to 16 regardless of race, gender or background. Anyway… here are some wonderful female writers- many of whom have influenced and changed my thinking! I loved drawing authors because it made me realise how little similarity there is between these women and yet they were all united in expressing themselves on paper :) I’m going to try and draw some more women soon- maybe political activists or athletes…
I know this is only a very small selection of female writers- who would be on your list and why?

J.K. Rowling, Jane Austen, and Hans Christian Anderson
I just answered the other two but this one is my favvvv.
Hans Christian Anderson: What is your favorite fairytale?
I think if we’re talking modern fairytale my favorite is Stardust. I’ve read that book a million times and seen the movie about as much. I just love it a lot.
Classical fairytale would probably be Beauty and the Beast not just the Disney version but the original de Beaumont and Villeneuve versions as well. Belle was always the Disney princess I identified with the most when I was a child and was what got me interested in reading more of them. I’ve read a ton since and it’s my preferred type of literature. Surprisingly, I still haven’t seen the new one though, I just haven’t watched anything recently.
I think this is unsurprising though given LoAL’s similarities to the archetype lol. I’ve actually written versions for almost every fandom I’ve written for too. I dunno I just love it, it’s a story about a dark character caring for someone besides themselves, giving that person everything they can.
