The Rapunzel plot
The story of Rapunzel & Rumpelstiltskin focuses on overcoming the monster.
With creative thinking, ingenuity and determination.
If you’ve got a story about how you’ve outwitted a giant (or in this instance the dwarf) tell it.
The Snow White Plot
There are times when tragedy strikes. You take a big bite into a poisonous apple.
And it looks like Lady Luck packed her bags and went on a big holiday.
Snow White stories have a happy-ever-after ending, but pull at the heart strings along the way.
The Goldilocks Plot
A girl with golden locks. Three bears. And porridge. Is it a Monty Python sketch?
Adding wit & humour to a story is possibly the greatest challenge.
Get it right though & your story could go viral.
The Cinderella Plot
Everyone loves an against-all-odds-rags-to-riches story where you get to marry your Prince.
They’re inspiring. They’re motivating. They show that if she can do it, I can do it too.
Everyone loves a winning tale so if you’ve had a big win share it.
The Sleeping Beauty Plot
Imagine sleeping for a hundred years. Then being woken up. With a kiss. From Prince Handsome.
A new world. A new dawn. A new day. Transformational stories are the alchemy of storytelling.
When you have one. Write it. Quick so you don’t forget what it feels like to be new you.
The Dorothy Plot
Dorothy with her ruby red shoes, Toto, the Tin Man, Mr Scarecrow & the cowardly Lion are a team.
Their quest. Get to the Emerald City to claim their prize. Home. Heart. Brain. Courage.
If you have a team (or a tribe like Sister Snog) bring your quest to life. It’ll make great reading.

The John French signature
French delivered fashion photography to the mass media by persuading art editors of the national press to use his flawlessly lit images of top models. His work appeared in virtually every newspaper. And glossies such as Harper’s Bazaar, Vanity Fair, Vogue and Tatler. You could say he was one of Britain’s first model talent spotters and encouraged his muses to develop-&-project their individual personalities in front of the lens. So if you Google Twiggy, Jean Shrimpton, Celia Hammond, Anne Gunning, Barbara Goalen or Tania Mallet you’ll see the John French signature. Always perfectly arranged. Carefully composed. Framed as if they were an artist’s picture in a canvas.
Google images speak volumes
What would happen if you Googled yourself. And clicked images. Does a beautiful gallery of stunning photos appear that tell an engaging story. Your story. About Brand You. Because more and more that’s what people do when they come across your name. Helps if you have an unusual moniker, such as Hela Wozniak-Kay. Less chance of Google mixing you up with A.N. Other (sorry Annie Brooks!). Try it. You’ll be surprised. Pleasantly or otherwise! If it’s the latter then to make a pact with yourself to do something about it.
