I had fun with one of the titles tonight! Care to guess which one?!
FAIRYTALES WITH BITE
When You Need More than a Magical Wand (to keep you out of trouble)… now what could that possibly be about?! I list those moments when your magical character(s) will realise a magical wand is not going to solve the problems they are in at that time. As ever, can you add to the list?
THIS WORLD AND OTHERS
Judging by Appearances is something most of us have been guilty of at times (and certainly from my experience I have always been wrong when I’ve done this). In fairytales, of course, it is common for the ugly or mild-mannered one to either be the most powerful magical being around or turn out to be the hero/heroine. But there is nothing to stop you getting your characters to judge each other. After all, isn’t all human frailty demonstrated in stories? So why shouldn’t this one be as well? I could see great comic and tragic stories coming out of this.
A bit of a news update on this. I share news of how I’m getting on with my proofreading. I also share my views on Grammarly (a free add-on for Firefox) and on predictive texting. I also list my favourite Chandler’s Ford Today post of the year. A little early for that? Maybe but I’m not sure the one I listed will be surpassed.
