Cinderella has caught my interest more than Into the Woods surprisingly.

First it was Prince Alcott from Mirror Mirror. Then Maleficent's Prince Phillip. And now Prince Charming. These fairy tale princes are making a habit of inspiring my writing muse!"

So...after viewing various interviews and trailers for Maleficent (this one in particular I had on replay, WOW), my writing muse took off. Silly muse!!

rosa_cotton: (not a fairy tale)
Huh. Soooooo, out of the blue my writing muse demanded I write a ficlet for Little Dorrit, a sequel to Cinderella's Shoe as a matter of fact. *blinks curiously* Now I feel like I need to go re-watch the BBC miniseries and reread the book. *wanders off*

Anyone catch Toy Story's Halloween special on TV tonight?! Nice animation, cute story, great humor…just way too short! And I just had to write something for it. Oh, how I’ve missed Toy Story!

*Can't believe I've worked at camp for 10 years. It does not seem that long, nor did I ever imagine I'd be allowed to do so. It has been a gift.

*Was introduced to Spotify this summer. Pretty cool.

*Was also introduced to "Duck Dynasty." Now that is an odd, funny show.

*Recently saw "The Incredibles" for the first time in years. I'd forgotten how awesome a movie it is: plot, characters, music, animation, issues/lessons. One of Pixar's best. Have been searching for fanfiction.

*Have gotten into the cooking show "Chopped" for some reason.

*"Carousel" was on TV recently. Forgot how long the dance sequences were. Still love the music and acting.

*Am definitely turning into a figure skating fan. Can't wait for the season to start, and see all the new programs. While waiting, I've been eating up the very informative The Skating Lesson podcasts.

*A lot of my summer reading centered on Jane Austen. I didn't read any of her books, but books about her. "Jane Austen for Dummies" was a favorite; I really liked learning the context in which her writing took place. I learned a lot about the times, events, customs and issues, which I think will shed more light on her writings when I reread her books. I am currently working through the Jane Austen Mystery series which are proving to be quite the delight.

*Way back in the 1990s, Olympic Gold Medalist Dorothy Hamill starred in an ice show, "Cinderella...Frozen in Time." I have it on a very old VHS and used to watch a lot when I was little. To my surprise I discovered the music for the show was available on CD and was able to get a copy. The music is so lovely. It was one of my favorite things about the show.

*Dear little Ori! He can be so sweet and polite. I think I will have change my ranking of the dwarves!

*Fanfiction recs:
No Living Man (LotR)
Jack Jack vs Edna Mode (Incredibles)
Green Tea Monsters (Incredibles)
