Get This Ball Rolling

Rolling, rolling, rolling.

I have two working theses right now and can't decide which is better. I put down my ideas in a simple comparison outline (image shown) and then was able to organize them into the thesis I thought was the best fit. Here it is in my paper shell.

It's just a beginning, but sometimes the beginning is the hardest part. I am excited, actually, to work on this and post it because it is getting the ball rolling.

Really rolling.

I hope it starts to snowball soon, but right now I am not getting very much from the enthusiasts I've contacted. I've gone to Goodreads, blogs, and even had an online interview with a screenwriter/enthusiast which unfortunately was cut short. I suppose it will pick up again soon. I'll keep working at it. 

I guess the best thing to say here is that this quest is to be continued...


  1. McKay,
    Thanks for the help with the source. I have some from my paper on illustrations, too.

    Lovell-Smith, Rose. "The Animals Of Wonderland: Tenniel As Carroll's
    Reader." Criticism 45.4 (2003): 383-415. Art Full Text (H.W. Wilson)

    Her article focuses on the animals in the story, but she provides a lot of insight into how the visual portrayal of characters affects readers.
    I am really intrigued by the comparisons you are making between The Princess Bride and Alice. We may have to continue this exchange of ideas since we are looking at similar topics.

    1. Yes! I agree! If I find any more helpful sources or insights, I'll let you know.
      Thanks for the source. I'll check it out!
