Retellings

Here we go! Promised post. I told you I'd do it.

I don't want to talk about how long it took me to learn how to do that.
So, retellings.
First of all, I'll tell you exactly what I mean by 'retelling'. I mean taking a story that's been around for a while, such as Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella or even the stories of King Arthur, and re-writing it. Typically there'll be a twist on it, but not always.
You'll have seen these around. Disney films are retellings, even though they're films. BBC's Merlin was a retelling.
People have been retelling stories since stories were first invented. It's why there's no such thing as a full 'original' idea. Because everyone is inspired by something and they'll often include bits from their favourite stories in their own.

Brief Updates

Hi guys!

Sorry I haven't posted for awhile, but anyway, a few things.
First of all, here is the link to my Fixers Project: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WilWf0Ck-I0
Feel free to watch it and so on. I promised in my last post that I'd get the link up, so here it is. Have fun with that.

Anyway, onto the stuff I was actually posting about. I'm going to attempt to get up a blog-post a week, so we'll see how that goes.
The next one should be up this week, as this really isn't a blog-post, and will be about story retellings and a few recommendations of my personal favourite retelling books. That should be up either tomorrow or Wednesday.
I'll get another up next week and, hopefully, the week after.
Also, the promised editing process post will be up, but I'll probably wait until I get back from holiday. It will happen, I'm telling you.
