    Interesting . . . Lay the Ugly Ducking on me! A spring 2013 deadline fits in perfectly with my procrastinating personality.

    • Ugly Duckling it is! Thanks! As a fellow lover of all things dark and spooky, feel free to take this anywhere you want to go with it. I’m sincerely hoping at least one of these stories is all sick and twisted.

        I already have an idea for the tale, and yeah, I think it’ll be twisted.

  4. I had a great little story about Goldilocks in my printed file, but I couldn’t find it quickly enough. Perhaps I’ll just post it on my site. Thanks for the heads-up about Canadica. I included the info in today’s post, and blamed you

    • I saw! I think I left the same comment on Sight’s blog. I need to hop over there and give him a link to this page. You should do Elves, Archon! I bet you could make it a timely allegory on the Canadian health care system. There’s a hidden Orwell in you, I know it!

  6. Since I am a tiny woman, I’ll take on Thumbelina, but not in a cage fight. I’ll simply retell her tale. I don’t know much about Thumbelina except that she was/is tiny. Wikipedia mentions cockchafers. I don’t know what they are either, but it sounds like the kind of made up word I might use.

    • Yes, you write your own take on the story THREE BILLY GOATS GRUFF. It can be funny or sad or dark or whatever. I’d like to keep it at 5000 words or less, if possible. I am also shooting for an April 2013 deadline. Think it over. I bet you could have fun with it!

    • All the above fairy tales are taken, but I am sure there are either some that I missed or fables that can be twisted. I will do some looking and let you know. If you find one first just drop me a comment here!

    I have started.

    Really.

    I have a title, and it’s on the the page.

    and…

    it’s a start.

    Next week I plan to sit and get to it…my muse will tell me when I’ve got it twisted right (wrong?!) in my head…but …I’ve not forgotten, and am actually pretty excited about it (the holidays really screwed with my time for writing!)

    Happy New Year!
