Nice letter.

I think it is great that you're doing this writing challenge! I know how hard it is to actually keep to it (I don't think I've ever properly done a diary in my life).
Nice work on the cinderella mini-series, one tip though. Watch out for the switch in times you make (from simpe past to present and back, example end of this chapter).
Overall a good job, though! Keep it up!
(I think I might start this too, after the summer holidays!)

oh my... This version of Prince Charming isn't very charming... now wondering if you're going to connect it with the prompt where the shoe fits the stepsister. Excited to see what you come up with. Next chapter will be a great read for sure!

Wonderful, I counted only ten rings of the bell... I really do love this twisted version of Cinderella... I wonder what's going to happen when he finds out her "status".

Your honesty is, in my opinion, profound. You do not fear saying things the way they are, I admire you for this.

Your version of Cinderella is interesting, and I'd love to see more of it.

Also, I am going to do this challenge as well, although it's going to be different topics.

Keep up the good work, snowyclara

I admire and appreciate your honesty in this letter. This is good writing. I am going to take up this challenge as well.

So when you said in the beginning that it's okay to go along with this, did you mean it? I totally want to do my own version of this. Anyway... on the actual review...

I was really kind of taken aback when there was something written about Prince Handsome (lol) yearning for peace and "communism". He wants to become a Communist? That kind of threw me back there for a while.

I'm intrigued by this version of Prince Charming. Very... bratty. Not quite the noble, kind-hearted, sugar-coated prince in our fairy tales...

"how many of those words are actually true?" - Question mark, not period. Sorry. I noticed. :(

The first thing I noticed about your profile picture is the glasses and the teeth. I like your teeth definitely more than I like mine. Lol.

Again, I appreciate the honesty. This one reminds me of Jeff Goins' latest installment in his series for writers - "Great Writers Provoke Us". Try googling it. I find a lot of the material on his site really helpful. :)

I love the first line: "It wasn't that long ago that we were the same person." I also love the honesty that came with the letter. It gives me a glimpse of you as a person. It says that you have a story, which is great because as writers, we need stories of our own. It gives us a voice unlike anyone else's.

I think the 10-year-old you will be either very confused or very freaked out upon reading this letter. I'm wondering if you kept that in mind while writing the letter. Instead of just writing down warnings, it would've been nice to put... I don't know... something more to show that you had it in mind that you were writing to a 10-year-old. You don't want to prematurely spoil your own blissful and bright-eyed innocence. (Does that make sense?)

On the technicalities, I would've appreciated it if you formatted the chapter into the actual format of a letter. It would be much more readable than having everything aligned in the middle.

Anyway, there's some hopefully constructive crit from a fellow aspiring writer. :) Wishing you the best! (I'm actually thinking of starting something like this... sounds like a great way to challenge creativity.)
