These 8 Female Characters In Literature Deserve Their Own Damn Books.

Need some help with creating a story line or a character?  Re  -imagine the life of a famous but misunderstood   character or the minor character in a major novel.  Geraldine Brooks won the Pulitzer for her back story on March, the shadowy father in Little Women.  Wicked considers Glinda and Elphaba in  a new light.

You don’t even need to mine “great” literature. What is your favorite story?  Is there another story line ignore, one  you want to address? Even as an exercise to get your creative juices flowing, thinking of the other story can be an enormous help – you already know what your new character looks like, you know what he or she ends up doing, or you already know about their past.

And if you are very clever, you re-write a story so well, it becomes the new norm – like Shrek.

    I adore this concept it fascinates me. I have always wondered about the lives of the common people in the background of the action are thinking and doing. I also enjoy exploring how things aren’t always what they seem to be. This is why “Wicked” is a favorite book of mine. I am currently working of a story (possible book) that up ends some fantasy staples. Dark is good, Light is bad. The Dark Queen is the hero and the pretty elves and fairies are evil. It stems from the fact out of most Disney movies I have seen, I like the villain best.
