So I’ve started my next big writing project: a modern retelling of Swan Lake. And when I say started, I mean I’ve started daydreaming about whether my main character is fast or graceful. I’m leaning toward speed skater because then I can finally go take a lesson and live vicariously through my characters. And you will NOT catch me taking a figure skating lesson.
But then I remember Oksana Baiul in all her feathery glory and think, Swan Lake! (If you don’t know who I’m talking about, you haven’t been an Olympics junkie since 1994.)
So what do you think?
In other news, I’m listening to the ALA Awards broadcast as I compose this post. How ’bout that Kadir Nelson, huh?
