Weekend Assignment: Twice Upon a Time

Once upon a time…

Four little words and automatically we have expectations about what will follow. A frog transforms into a prince. Siblings leave a breadcrumb trail through the forest. The wolf eats the grandmother.

But what if those things didn’t happen?

Your writing challenge for this weekend is to take a fairy tale and make it new. If you need a refresher course on fairy tales, or if you seek inspiration, I recommend a visit to SurLaLune Fairy Tales. Another good place is the old site for EnchantedConversation.com. If you click on the issues listed in the left menu, you can read other authors’ takes on Sleeping BeautyBeauty and the Beast,  The Little Mermaid, and Hansel and Gretel.

The Show and Tell Challenge

Step right up and take the B&B Show and Tell Challenge! Here’s how: simply write your response to this assignment, post it on your blog, then come back and leave a link to your post in the comments. It’s that simple!
