Friday Feast: Cinderella Story, Narrative Tension, Self-Esteem, and Bad Seeds

Cinderella Kristin WiigThere are many versions of Cinderella. I’m fond of the Brothers Grimm version, which includes severed toes and heels and an army of birds who peck out eyeballs. After long hours of toil and trouble, Cinderella weeps and prays at the tree growing on her mother’s grave three times daily.

Cinderella is the patron saint of writers. Think about it.
