  5. I haven't read the first parts, but I definitely enjoyed the ending! Great concept, and Mattilina Thorn is a wonderful name for a character!

  7. Oh my gosh! You had me good! Thank you and yes, more in the Spring. I really love the idea of different versions of the tale being to confuse the Trads. Very clever and very clever wrong-footing us about the tale. Yes, Disney got it so wrong!

  9. Your imagination is wonderful. I love the monsters, the love story and the Red Ridinghood influences. I also like your language, how you shape your sentences.

    My only issue is that it that the story is a little heavy on back and forth dialog. I could have used a larger ratio of background story, explanations and descriptions to form more of a moving picture in my mind.

    1. My imagination says, "Thank you." ;-) I'm glad you feel that way about my monsters, for I love them as much as I love the sweet creatures. Stories can't be complete without all of them, right?

      You are correct and then some about the mile-a-minute-and-kind-of-bare nature of my storytelling (at least my first drafts). My writing will probably always stay on the lighter side when it comes to descriptions, but I tend to move through important parts. When I revise and rewrite Thorn in Red, I will fill those rushed through moments. I might ask you to take a look for me, after I'm done. *cough, cough*

    2. Oh my, I would be very honored to be assigned such a task. But you should know that, compared to many, I am not really much of a literary person.

  10. Brilliant, my Magaly. I will forever have a special fondness for Little Red Riding Hood and especially butterscotch. But mostly, I sit in awe at how your writing both in story and sentence beauty only grows more and more. Warmest hugs, Mina
