fairy tales redux

Maybe four sets of four stories? GLASS, BEAST, TOWER, FLIGHT (?)? With a lineup something like:

GLASS: Snow White, Cinderella, The Red Shoes, The Glass Mountain
BEAST: Snow White & Rose Red, Bluebeard, Beauty and the Beast, The Wounded Lion
TOWER: Rapunzel, Sleeping Beauty, Rumpelstiltskin, The Princess of the Tower
FLIGHT: The Children of Lir, The Nightingale, The Wild Swans, The White Dove

There are So Many themes you could choose. SNOW. THRICE. WICKED, as I said, but that gets repetitive and I don’t think I’m clever enough to be re-telling the same fairy tales twice differently enough to be interesting. (Same problem with SNOW, really. :)) TWELFTH. GOLD. Endless choices!

In my copious free time. :) Actually, it’d be kind of nifty to release one set a quarter next year, but that presupposes having my act that much together, or possibly presupposes not having thirty other projects I’m working on. Down, Simba. Anyway, eventually. It’d be fun.

Today I’ve done five loads of laundry (four of which I need to go fold now, sigh), cleaned the kitchen about forty times, swept, vacuumed, and written some on the 8th Walker Papers. And been a Mommy. I should get paid better.
