Beginning to write again!!!

I always loved writing and making up stories. But I have been so busy with school and just life that I have not written (unless for school) in a long time and I am determined to start back up. I want to rewrite fairy tales and make them different, make them mine. I want to start with "The 12 Dancing Princesses" because that was my personal favorite as a kid.

I was always fascinated with the idea of 12 sisters going dancing all night without anyone knowing and their father trying his hardest to figure out how they got out!

 I guess since I have 5 sisters myself, I felt connected to the story. I used to think how coll would it be if My sisters and I all went dancing without anyone knowing, all of us meeting a prince and living happily ever after.

All my sisters can dance so I think I thought "this could be my life! I just need 6 more sisters and we could be the 12 Dancing Princesses!"

I mean, the princesses danced until their shoes had holes in them. Let me repeat that Their shoes had HOLES IN THEM! I have danced for 5 or so hours straight but my shoes never got holes! (Possibly because I would take my shoes off after the first dance, finding it easier to dance barefoot":))

This whole story is just fascinating! So Whenever I have time I think I will start to jot down some ideas to rewrite that amazing story.


  1. Stick with it!! Rewriting fairy tales is so much fun! I, too, want to rewrite them all, or very nearly as many as I can, to make them my own! I've started my own retelling already from The Twelve Dancing Princesses, but I'm eager to see how other writers retell it! :)

    1. Thanks! Its nice to have encouragement from other writers! wow! That's so cool! You'll have to let me know when you've finished it so I can read it :) I already have a couple of ideas. I just have to find the time now... :)

    2. Aw, thanks, Lydia! :) I completely understand what you mean about finding time. My 12 Dancing Princesses rewrite is only a few chapters in right now, and I haven't touched it almost a year due to being so busy working on my Cinderella retelling. *sigh* Stories can be so demanding, can't they? But they're so much fun!

    3. Wow! I'm impressed that you're doing two!!!!!! I am determined to start though. I am passionate about writing but can never find the time. They are a lot of fun though

  2. That's one of my favorite fairy tales! I love that clever prince.
