Rooglewood Countdown: 34 days: Consequences

     There were so many consequences in the Snow White story.  Snow White faced consequences for taking the poisons, although it all worked out well in the end for her.  In the original story, the queen faced some pretty horrifying consequences for her actions in the end.

      What do you think about judgments and consequences? 

     Did Snow White deserve her consequences?  Do you agree that, at least in stories, things should still work out in the end for good guys?

     What about the queen?  Would you have been able to pass judgment on her?  Do you think harsh punishments are sometimes right?  If you were writing the story, does it make it easier to have someone other than your Snow White character pass the judgment?  Why or why not?


  1. That's the one thing I did focus on. I think everyone had to deal with a fair share of fall out from their choices. The Queen probably got the worst of it, but I would say hers was deserved.

    I do like it works out for the good guys, I'm a sucker for a happy ending.

    1. Consequences make the story more real and the ending more satisfying. And happy endings are definitely my favorite.

Character Creation by Emily Ann Putzke
My character in Ain’t We Got Fun is Georgiana (Gi) Rowland, the older sister of Bess. Their family is struggling during the Great Depression, so Gi takes off for NYC to make a fortune and help them out. The sisters recount their adventures, joys and heartaches to each other. My co-author, Emily Chapman, and I wrote this story in letter form in January. Our characters are very different people! Here are a 5 things that helped me bring Gi to life, and give her a personality that’s all her own.
1.  Give Your Characters Flaws None of us are perfect, so our characters shouldn't be either. Gi is a fun, loyal, light hearted girl with big dreams. But she has a flaw that she struggles with throughout the entire story. Pride. She’s very stubborn, independent, and doesn’t want anything from anybody.
2. Use That Flaw to Stretch and Change Your Character Pride gets Gi in quite a few scrapes. Throughout AWGF, she’s constantly battling with it. Everytime she thi…

Rooglewood Countdown: 9 1/2 weeks: Why Yours?

Yep, time is picking up speed.  Especially since I have other things to keep me busy.
     Here is my questions for you today: what makes your story special?  In the comments below, I want you to finish this sentence "It's a Snow White story, but..."  Did you change the setting?  Is Snow White the ugliest in all the land?  How did you swap out the elements of your story to make it unique?

Ragged Nails: A Post about Artist Insecurities

Merry Christmas Eve!  I hope your holidays are bright!!!

     My contest entry has been in Rooglewood's hands for 5 days.  My mental status has gone from the over-the-top excited and relieved when I first submitted a steady optimism that my story actually might have a decent chance this a closed-off state where I was convinced that I didn't even need to worry about it until next today.
     Today I am tore up with the certain feeling of my stories significant and amateur flaws.  Who would read this?  How can this compare to the other amazing authors chosen by Rooglewood?  What was I thinking to submit such a meager tale?
     I do this every year.  And it is a passing feeling. I know it is.  The artist cycle is something I've talked about before on this blog.  It helps to know that this is normal and that I will be excited about my story again tomorrow.
    But, oh, those other authors are so intimidating!
    How are you guys holding up?  Sti…
