Snippet: The Pretty Part

I have started my Rooglewood retellings for Sleeping Beauty.  So, for the next several weeks, I am going to post a quote from my stories on Saturdays.  I hope you enjoy it!

“This is the part that hurts.  Can’t we skip it and go straight to the ‘pretty’ part?”


  1. Aww so cute, that's a great idea. I just started mine as well, I am already stuck though.

  2. Yay, Skye! Hurray for starting!

    Keeping working on it.
    Whenever I am stuck, I usually back up to see if there is something I unconsciously don't like in the part I already wrote. Sometimes a wrong scene or a poorly developed character from a couple pages ago is what is causing me to hit a wall now.
    The other reason I get stuck is because I need to go back to the drawing board and do some more brainstorming. But brainstorming can be fun.

    Anyway, I am just so excited about the fact that both you and I are working on stories at the same time. Keep up the good work!

  3. Yay! This is great!! Can't wait to read more!

  4. I have some unexpected twists throwing themselves into this story and begging to be written. I'm definitely pantsing this one.

    Pantsing = flying by the seat of your pants (in abbreviated blogger-writer terminology)
