54 pages in and no, I haven't check - but I'm guessing someone has to post it
when I wrote it, I thought it was going to be a very generic story, anything could have happened. I thought of a car accident, But the point was that it presents an unusual situation with elements common enough that anyone can think of many different stories, opening multiple possibility. But of all the things I thought it could happen, I didn't think at all at Cinderella . . . too cliche even for a fable, in my opinion
but, alas, I have been naive! Cinderella has hijacked my attempt at a story. There is an important lesson for me here. Given the option, people will most likely go down the best known story, assuming the author intended what they already know. Thanks, I made this mistake too many times already
