“more forgetting time.
more midnight dances with yourself.“
amanda lovelace, the bestselling & award-winning author of the “women are some kind of magic” poetry series, presents a new companion series, “you are your own fairy tale” the first installment, break your glass slippers, is about overcoming those who don’t see your worth, even if that person is sometimes yourself. in the epic tale of your life, you are the most important character while everyone is but a forgotten footnote. even the prince.
villains almost never look like cackling witches, cruel stepmothers, or bratty stepsisters. they're so much quieter than that
I was really enjoying the Cinderalla narrative until it got lost about halfway through. Sidetracked with self-love, slightly preachy self-help clichés with seemingly random weight and body-love proverbs. It just wasn’t related to the established fairy tale storyline. This left the plot feeling disjointed. If I could cut out the middle unassociated bits, I did really enjoy the twist on Cinderella. Instead of being about finding Prince Charming, it’s about finding yourself first and maybe being your own Prince Charming.
you are limitless.
you can have the lipstick.
you can have the sword.
