Five Magic Spindles Announcement!

It is simply thrilling to announce the third Rooglewood Press contest called....

I don't know how, but this is possibly even more beautiful than Five Enchanted Roses! Oh, how thrilling this new contest is! So tell me--who's got ideas? I'm thrilled to try my hand at retelling this fairy tale!


  1. I have an idea, and have already began writing it early this morning. I actually started plotting this story at least a month ago (though probably longer) just in case it was going to be a "Sleeping Beauty" retelling. And wow, it is!
    Hope you're filled with much inspiration for this contest, Clara!

  2. Hi, Ms. Clara,

    I hope that you've been doing well. I'm super excited about this contest, too! Best wishes as you brainstorm ideas. I have small glimmerings of possibilities thus far and am so eager to expound upon them. Are you also planning to submit something for the Goldstone Wood music contest? God bless you.

  3. I began plotting both a "Sleeping Beauty" and "Snow White" outline base about a month ago, sure that it was going to be one of them. I've already begun working on it, though I am slightly worried, seeing as I am already working on a novel-in-progress, and am unsure of how to balance working on both it and my retelling. :)

  4. I'm so excited for this!!! I have an idea, but we'll see if it goes anywhere. =)

  5. The cover is amazing! I think I have an idea. I'd like to see how your tale works out!

  6. Hi, there! I've tagged you for the 777 Writing Challenge, in case you're interested. You are not obligated to do it, though, but if you do, have fun!
