...Huh!

So, I just realized as I was commenting on Mythopoeia's blog that the story I'm working on right now sometimes reminds me of Charles Dickens. Not so much in the style (although I have written about this character before in Dickens style as assignment in writing class) as in his story.

I'm really mean to him.

Sorry Peter. BUT!

Unlike many of Dickens' books. Stories, novels. Potato tomato potato tomato. Peter gets a happy ending somewhere down the road. (Books ought to have good endings - J.R.R. Tolkien.)

And the other day, (I was spacing out, so I didn't catch all of this, unfortunately) I was told by my nearly-six-year-old nephew that stories always have happy endings.

So there you go.
