A question for the literary community—is there a name for a retelling of a well-known story from the point of view of an overlooked/dismissed/reviled/unexamined character?

For example:

• Wicked
• The Wide Sargasso Sea
• The Wind Done Gone

There doesn't seem to be a term, the way there is "spinoff", "vehicle", "prequel", "reboot" etc. to describe other re-versionings of original works.

Being an effective project manager often entails looking like the biggest fool in the room—no question is too basic to be worth asking, and part of your job it make sure every question gets asked.

Anyone else notice that short videos are making their attention span worse?

I don't actually use TikTok or even the "sliding" function on youtube shorts, but I feel like my attention span has gotten much worse after they started getting popular. Even watching a 2 minute video feels dreadfully long, let alone a 10 or 20 minute video, so I end up watching a mostly short animation memes instead.
