This writing prompt is about our mothers/mother figures. We are going to embellish their good/positive traits so much; they will be entirely over the top. We will then create a polar opposite character.
A good trait would be, mom loves a clean house. I would take that trait and create an over the top embellishment like, maybe she spends her days washing people's feet as they come into the house. To her, it's standard procedure. To others, it's weird but oddly enjoyable. Maybe she's using tweezers and scissors to trim the carpet, making sure it's perfect.
The polar opposite of that would be, she lets the house become disheveled. This house may be on its way to being condemned because maggots are performing circus acts in the fridge, and there's a weird smell coming from under the floorboards which are ready to give out.
Here we go.
