Women Writers

"Headstrong and tough, Lois Lane was based on the real-life journalist, Nellie Bly. She was known around Metropolis as a top-notch investigative journalist. And even though she was Superman's love interest, she was Clark Kent's equal in the newsroom." -a quick read about fictional characters inspiring female writers. Harriet the Spy, Carrie Bradshaw and Nancy Drew were among others on the list. I did love Nancy Drew, but mostly I was an Anne of Green Gables fan.
