Journaling Prompt #7 – Write a Fairy tale

June 25th, 2008 by Avital

One of the best ways to spruce up your writing and boost your creativity is by coming up with a fairy tale. A fairy tale has no limits because it is created in an imaginative world in which you are making the rules. As the ruler you can do anything in it. The farther you go with your imagination, the better the fairy tale is.

Think about fairies and magicians and little-people and giants. Think about a completely different species, like J.R.R. Tolkien‘s hobbit.

A fairytale can be very short in scope, therefore suitable as a journaling prompt, an exercise for polishing your writing. You don’t need to write a full length novel (like Tolkien), even a one page story is enough for stretching out your imaginative boundaries.

To get inspired and jump start your own fairytale, you can visit these sites:

  1. Read from a collection of the Brother Grimm’s Tales;

  2. Try out this fun fairytale generator;

  3. Browse an assortment of fairy tales by different authors;

  4. Look through a compilation of Hans Christian Andersen’s stories and fairy tales.

Enjoy and share your fairytale by leaving a comment to this post.
