Fourth Friday Fairy Tale Prompt: Volume 1

Welcome to our first Fourth Fridays Fairy Tale Prompt (slightly late).  And here's the prompt:

Copyright Claudia Bernasconi Esposito.  Source.*

How to Participate 

 

  1. You have until the fourth Friday of next month to use this prompt to inspire a piece of art, music, or writing.
  2. Your piece does not have to be supernatural, as long as it is inspired by the fairy tale prompt.
  3. Post your finished piece on your blog, site, or other online presence.
  4. Link your virtually published piece to this post.  (See inlinlz tool at the bottom.)
  5. Read (or view) the other entries.  Offer insights, appreciation, constructive criticism, and encouragement.  Have fun.
  6. Use the following image in your post and link back to this post so that other people may find us and participate in the future.
 


I look forward to sharing the creative experience with you!

In the spirit of sharing, please have a look at Bolts of Silk and my poem, and do consider submitting something in support of this worthy publication.



*  Please always give credit and link back to the original source of the prompt.  It should go without saying--not under any circumstances is the prompt to be used for personal monetary gain; it is the rightful creative property of another.  Nor does Spinning Straw into Gold receive any compensation through the use of these prompts.

    1. Hi Laura!

      Absolutely. In the future I hope to use musical pieces and sentences as well. c:

  4. Mine is late, but I'm going to put it up anyway? And try to do better next time??? It's also probably full of typos. I'll fix it tomorrow.

    I also completely didn't realize the picture was angels until I went to grab the file just now and so they are pixies in the story. Or something. Sorry :(

    1. Hey Laura! It doesn't matter, and, It doesn't matter!

      The InLinz thing is actually open 'til tomorrow, and you don't have to follow the prompt rigidly. Only the most vague of inspirations will suffice. I don't want the prompt to be limiting! Looking forward to reading it!

  5. I wouldn't worry, Laura, I made them blood-thirsty water-demons. :)

    1. Thanks, M.! I tried despite my extreme time limitations (that I brought on myself).

      actually it looks like no one thought they were angels after all, so I feel relieved that I haven't actually Strayed from the Prompt.

    2. I'm excited to read them; I've been knocked over by a really bully of a cold this past week, so I've been neglectful of friends and duties. It keeps tricking me into thinking it's gone and comes back. Arg! Anyway, thank you so much for participating, and will read them as soon as I can!
