Writing Prompt #3

Last week’s writing prompt involved taking a new look at an old favorite fairytale. This week, you can keep the same story or choose a new one. Did you know that the older versions of some fairytales had other chapters that have been deleted over time? Let’s experiment with why we begin and end stories where we do.

Your challenge is to write a prologue or an epilogue for the fairytale. Tell us what led up to the story or what happened after the last page was turned.

Do you think your new chapter makes the story better? Or do you think the original story included the only the best parts and provided a satisfying ending?
