Fairy-tales and Hero Stories

To end your day with “once upon a time”.   Doesn’t it make you sit up and listen, when the point of being read to at night is to lay down and sleep?

Today I’m working on a fairy-tale–a magical place in my mind.

bear-838688_1920There are no fairy-tales in our book “Make No Assumptions”  but you’ll find its close relative:  hero stories.   In my (Glenda’s) story,  “About Jack” unlike Jack from the beanstalk,   my Jack has a friend in the wilderness in which he finds himself–an usual sort of companion,  Great Bear.

In Janie’s “Alberto” hero story,  a young man grows up in a foreign land and but for the help of a solitary friend would disappear in the city jungle madness.

Why read a short story?

I found several reasons:

  1. You’re bound to finish it.   It’s a short story for crying out loud.
  2. If your goal is to read every day…done and done.
  3. A good way to try reading different authors.
  4. In between novels?   Take a break with a short story.

And as Neil Gaiman says:  

” A short story is the ultimate close-up magic trick–a couple of thousand words to take you around the universe or break your heart!”
