more Robin Hood

February 6, 2019

As awful as that new Robin Hood movie was, I think I need to owe it some gratitude. It made me rush to re-read McKinley’s Outlaws of Sherwood, which I’ve always loved, as a palate cleanser. This time while reading it — on my December vacation, with nothing to do but sit around and read books and think about things — I got an idea.

Actually, I’ve had an idea for my own Robin Hood story for 15+ years. I’ve known the basic outline, I just needed a spark or a frame or something to get it started. With so much Robin Hood on my brain and thinking about what makes a good Robin Hood story and what makes a bad one, that spark finally happened, and I’ve been working on it. Like, a lot.

And that probably wouldn’t have happened if I hadn’t gone to see that terrible, terrible Robin Hood movie.
