The Evolution of ‘Little Red Riding Hood’

The Evolution of ‘Little Red Riding Hood’

My NaNoWriMo novel, though it’s sort of a more chick lit-ish, YA, Gossip Girl-esque universe, borrows conventions and “titles” from fairytales, and my heroine, Kestrel Cruz, is the universe’s analog for Red Riding Hood (hence my NaNoNovel’s title, Lady Red).  So when this popped up on my Twitter feed, I couldn’t help but find it interesting.

If you guys are also fairytale-obsessed, like me, you may want to check out The Uses of Enchantment by Bruno Bettelheim, which explores the psychology of those “Once Upon a Times…” we’re told as kids.

Anyway, back to balancing work and NaNoWriMo life!
