FAIRYTALES WITH BITE
A Good Day in the Magical World looks at how this might be viewed through the eyes of someone who is definitely junior in the magical rankings. Do you agree with my list? (I do love a good list!).
THIS WORLD AND OTHERS
What Your Characters Really Want speaks for itself really. I discuss obstacles getting in the way of characters achieving their objectives and also those deep down wishes your character may not reveal openly. (This could be due to knowing their wish is highly unlikely to be granted and they don’t want to seem foolish by being open here – I suspect most of us have known that feeling sometimes. Also sometimes a character could suppress their own wishes if it helped someone they cared about so the question what does a character really want has lots of potential for future stories).
I discuss film and TV music, having enjoyed a wonderful concert put on by Classic FM this evening (well put on for broadcast anyway). And I share, thanks to Youtube, one of my favourite pieces. Samuel Barber’s Adagio for Strings is a good test of whether you’re human or not. It is one of those pieces that must make you feel something. And if it doesn’t maybe it’s time the rest of us ran away from you terribly fast.
