This is the class blog for the class in Creative Writing, Spring 2017, at Aalborg University, Denmark.
Nicely remediated, and a good way of cramming most of the original story's events and characters in. Amusing too!
A bit is missing about the marriage arrangement, but understandable that you left that part out, considering this is supposed to take place in the present. But I love how modern it is, with them being on a date. Maybe to include the emissary, you could say that he was a friend setting her up for the date?
Why didn't i think of that... the emissary could've set up the blind date... dammit!
Good point, Søren!
Hahaha! I love this. The way you incorporated the story in text messages is brilliant. I love the fact that Catherine is kind of texting the Duke's monologue. It reminds me of the humor of a good parody on a horror movie. Try out as a scriptwriter!
I think you did a great job in incorporating the story into only a few text messages. More info could have been added, but it still works very well like this. It was a very interesting read!
