Weekly Writing Prompt: Your Fairy Tale

cinderellaRecently I have been inspired by The Write Stuff Novel Writing Workshop for kids that I assisted with at NY Writers Coalition. One of the participants put their own spin on the classic fairy tale, Cinderella. Instead of being an orphan and only child, it turns out that Cinderella’s parents are alive  and being held captive in a different world and it’s up to her and her sister to save them. Every week I loved hearing the new parts to the story they had written. While fairy tales have been a source of reading material for ages it might be time for them to become more modern.

   Take a fairy tale and write your own version of it. You can use some of the characters or plot from the original, but make it your own!
