Greetings, my friends!
I hope you are all ready for some snippets, because that is pretty much all I have for you today.
Last year I had this idea for a fairy tale retelling of Rapunzel, in which Rapunzel and the prince are both very young children and don’t actually fall in love…sounds exciting, right? Anyway, I actually WROTE it, which is impressive, and even though it’s still a first draft, it’s just a fun little story (with some angst, because apparently I can’t get away from THAT) and maybe I should just get to the snippets now because I’m running out of things to say and this is turning into a run-on sentence.
Actually, first I should introduce a few of the characters so that maybe the snippets make a little bit of sense.
Zerula– the Rapunzel character. She is about seven and has a facial deformity which freaks a lot of people out for some reason. But she’s 100% sweeter than the Phantom.
Prince Trellic- Prince Charming character. He is about twelve and heir to the throne of the kingdom of Trellis. He rides on ostrich instead of a horse. Not sure why. (I actually introduced you to him in this post.)
Beansby- Prince Trellic’s manservant. He’s…well, he’s Beansby. Not sure what else to say.
All right, let’s just go on to the snippets now.
Well, there you have it. Snippets!
