I am entering a competition running with the National Literacy Trust to rewrite a fairy tale, giving it a modern twist.
I have picked The Snow Queen as I love the story, especially the bit about the mirror and how if a fragment gets into your heart it can turn it to ice. I'm a sucker for anything that has a strong friendship at the heart of it.
As I am re-telling the story I wanted to make sure I remembered it properly. I have found that there are lots of different versions already, which is probably why I remembered some of the story but not all of it.
A friend of mine lent me a her copy which looks like it has survived being read many times.
I'm finding it quite a hard task, but for those of you who have heard my talk, you will know that means I am hopefully on the right lines. Lots of redrafting and editing to come!
Welcome to my blog, a place where you can keep up to date with what I am up to.
