No matter what you write, you actually can't help retelling a fairy tale somewhere along the way.
As I grew up, I read and loved many fairy-tale retellings and began to think about writing my own reimagining of 'Rapunzel.'

If you see the magic in a fairy tale, you can face the future.
Bullies are often people who are shy and can't make friends easily, so, as the theme of the movie 'A Bronx Tale' tells us, it is better to be feared if you can't be loved.
