WRiting a Fairy Tale Middle Grade Manuscript Complete at 5,415 Words May 28 2013 – Korean Pop Writers Typing Tunes Playlist
Cinderella with a twist chapter book by author Linda Randall
the idea girl says
Got up this morning and decided I had the ITCH to write.
So I typed up a 5,415 word manuscript off the top of my head, a new Cinderella type fairytale that I am going to Query agents with.
I got the idea after reading “several” agents wanting a rehash of the Cinderella and other “fairytales” with a twist to the story – modernized or something that’s off the wall different.
So I google Fairytale Cinderella and found Ellie O’Ryan Disney Princess Chapter Books by Simon Schuster.
Then the idea hits me, what can I do to make Cinderella different? 🙂
It was easy and quick to write, just the dialogue is completed.
I have to go back and add a few settings and tweaks and then it will be ready to roll.
I’m having problems finding agents that love chapter books!
So I sent a FB message to a certain well known illustrator named JO… and asked her if she likes Chapter Books, I’ll offer my stories to her to illustrate and see what she thinks of them.
She’s got a few published books, so she knows her stuff!
the comical thing is I have Ellie’s CSI book in my weekly reads.. is that something or WHAT?
