#behindthescenes of… the story opening
How does The little girl behind the mirror begin? The opening of a story is important, isn’t it? That’s why I thought long what the best way to open my book was…
Well, then I chose to start with “Once upon a time…” The most banal choice. No, it is not banal. Not for this story.
The little girl behind the mirror is set in a village with a king, a queen, a princess, a castle. All famous elements of the fairy tales. Yet this novel is not a fairy tale.
But this is part of the scenography to create an atmosphere with no time, a place that is nowhere but that can be mine, yours, ours.
So “Once upon a time” is just the perfect beginning to bring us in this world. Far away and yet so close.
