  1. Only people who know that this is one of my Sleeping Beauty retellings will be able to understand this snippet.

  3. Oh, wow. I love this snippet. Somehow this one line is wistful, mysterious and foreboding all at once. One of the things that's really troubling me about retelling this tale is how to deal with the one hundred year sleep. That's a long time, and I'm struggling with finding out how to express that and how to make that time pass in the story. I guess I have a ton of brainstorming to do!

  4. I'm sure there is a way, Ana! But I agree: A hundred years IS a long time.
    How is the ready of your brainstorming coming? Getting excited?
