Road Trip Wednesday is a ‘Blog Carnival,’ where YA Highway’s contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question that begs to be answered. In the comments, you can hop from destination to destination and get everybody’s unique take on the topic.
This Week’s Topic
In honor of this month’s Bookmobile book, Marissa Meyer’s Cinder, name a fable or story you’d like to see a retelling of. If you’re feeling creative, come up with a premise of your own!
This is a timely question for me, as the story I’m considering writing for NaNoWriMo this year is a retelling of Sleeping Beauty. I’m a bit nervous about it though, because re-writing fairy tales seems to be very popular right now. “They” tell you to never write to trends because by the time your book is ready for submission, the trend is over-saturated. But, “they” also say that any well-written book with the right hook can be picked up regardless of the trends.
So all I can do is write the best story I can and cross my fingers.
