"I like using opposites, things most people would not consider putting together. It is easy to think of Cinderella as being the nice, mistreated, poor girl with a heart of gold being rescued by Prince Charming. But what if Cinderella has some spice, and is willing to get into Prince Charming's face. What if she is anything but what Prince Charming expected, and he turns out to be the opposite of what she expected. Then, add some outside conflict and see what happens. This always make for a good story, especially when based around historical events."... Major Mitchell
