    Hiya lovely KeePers! Yep, it’s me. Poking my head out of the cyberspace of nonexistence again… and this time I have a favor to ask.

    There’s been quite a bit about the Rooglewood Press fairytale contest floating around, and I’m here to add to the mayhem by letting you know my entry is complete… and I would really appreciate some feedback.

    It’s exactly 20,000 words (40 pages) and could probably be read in one afternoon by a moderately quick reader.

    Now I have to pitch the story itself… ehehehe. *gulps* The title is The Mirror. I haven’t come up with an official blurb yet… it’s basically Snow White with a steampunk-y twist, working with the concept that the mirror is the villain… and that the evil queens are the princesses no one rescued. What does it take to make a hero? And when the ones who are supposed to be heroes fail, who takes up the mantle?

    Wow that was lame. I’ll come up with something better later. πŸ˜›

    I’d like all feedback to be in before December 1st, if possible, as the contest deadline is December 16th, and I need time to implement suggestions. Thanks in advance. πŸ˜‰

    @dekreel @that_writer_girl_99 awesome!

    Tell you what… I’m just going to do this the easy way and give you guys a google doc.

    https://docs.google.com/document/d/1PrflphTgYkY34iH-s1xCCf5gqm19HgtnbQ2WXsWijhA/edit

    Not sure if it will let you post comments right off the bat… you might need to ‘request permission to edit’, and several of you might show up in the same doc at one time, but hey, then you can just have a critiquing party. πŸ˜‰

    @kate-flournoy I’d love to give you feedback

    I should have time to read it by Friday or Saturday, and I’ll see if I can think of any useful suggestions. I already read the first couple paragraphs, and I’m really intrigued.

    I don’t know very much about the Rooglewood contest, but I can definitely read the story, probably in an hour or two;D

    Good luck on it! And I’ll be back in touch
