Sci-Fi Fairy Tales and Goddesses

I had a marvellous weekend even though I was ill. I took the weekend off writing because I was ill for most of last week and just needed some down time. I hit up my local library Saturday morning, returned the books I had out, and picked up some new ones; and oh my godsContinue reading “Sci-Fi Fairy Tales and Goddesses”

Fairy Tales: The Red Shoes

Wow! Over the last few days life really decided that my plans were unimportant. I had hoped to post this on Sunday as per my usual schedule but like I said, the universe had other plans. One of the things I’ve been discussing on my blog is fairy tales and the impact they’ve had onContinue reading “Fairy Tales: The Red Shoes”

My Myth of Mermaids and Poem – Siren’s Song

If you’ve been following this blog, then you will know that I’m rather obsessed with Greek Mythology. Always have been. I am also semi-obsessed with Mermaids.

I’ve probably mentioned before now that I am pretty obsessed with Greek Mythology. This poem wasContinue reading “Poem – Hades Halls”

It’s mainly inspired by tales such as Beauty and the Beast and myths such as Hades and Persephone, Cupid and Psyche, and really any ofContinue reading “Poem – Twisted”

The Little Mermaid – Disney V Hans Christian Andersen

  It’s no secret that I love mermaids. The Little Mermaid, naturally, is one of my favourite Fairy Tales. While the musical numbers in the Disney production are catchy and fun it’s the Hans Christian Andersen version that I really like; you know, the original (as always the book is better than the movie). ItContinue reading “The Little Mermaid – Disney V Hans Christian Andersen”

Little Red Riding Hood

What’s your favourite fairy tale? It should be simple right? Like when people ask you “What’s your favourite book?” or movie, or band. It’s never simple for me because I can never seem to pick just one. Maybe one per genre, but not one that tops the others. I also find as I get olderContinue reading “Little Red Riding Hood”
