Unofficial Challenge: Fairytale

Once upon a time…


Tell me a children’s story from your world in 1500 words or less. It should be easy to follow, and made with children in mind. Inspiration can be drawn from fairy tales and stories from real life, but try to put an original spin on it. The winner will recieve 1year of ProWritingAid Premium to help with editing in the future!

Hans Christian Anderson, The Brothers Grimm, Robert Munsch, and many others know the value of a children’s story. What are children’s stories like in your world? Do they impart knowledge or teach a lesson? Or are they simply to entertain young minds?

Word limits do be like that. Short stories and flash fiction is always hard to get just right. If you make any major edits before the deadline let me know and I'll re-read it and count the most recent effort!
