In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “A Storybook Day.”

fairy-taleReading a lot of Enid Blyton’s books and Hans Andersen’s Fairy Tales as a child helped to form an imaginary World where everything was possible in my developing mind and since I have fancied myself as quite an actress, I simply cannot allow such an opportunity to amend some wrongs and settle scores go away.

We don’t have to look too far, I would love an opportunity to be Cinderella.

Those horrid step-sisters need a little comeuppance. A little pinch, pulling of hair and boxing an ear would soothe my maltreated nerves.

All that sweet syrupy nature of Cinderella was a little too acquiescent!

Second dips, I would love to be a fairy in Enid Blyton’s ”The Magic Faraway Tree.” They had such a delightful time.

Back to reality, as a grown woman, my current favorite fictional character exists in the pages of the novel that I am putting together.

I am still trying to understand her and where she is taking her story to.

  1. Haha! ‘ boxing an ear!’ I could envision it Jacqueline! How funny it would have been if the fairy god mother had given all of the mice a little courage to do just that! And what an interesting phrase ‘I am still trying to understand her and where she is taking her story to.’ I didn’t realize writing a novel could be that way. Thank you for the insight!

    1. Sometimes, I wish make-believe was just a little real. It would have been much more fun 🙂 The truth is that sometimes, there are stories that I start writing, thinking that I know where I am going, but I truly find myself surprised at the turn of my initial thoughts to something else entirely. I like to keep my mind open ended and just let it go as it comes to me. Thank you my dear. Have a good day today/tomorrow.
