Fairy Tale Prompt #1

There is an old Chinese folklore about a red string of fate that connects two people that are destined to be soul mates.

The belief is that the red string is tied to the pinky of every person and it stretches all they way to the pinky of their soulmate wherever they may be…regardless of time. The legend says the red string of fate can be stretched and tangled but it will never break.

If you want to a story about the legend, please click on The Old Man Under the Moon.

For this challenge, I want you to create a tale involving the red string of fate. You can use any form of writing, photography or art. Once you are finished you post it on your blog, then go to Mister Linky and add your link.

You have until next Friday.

Go write, draw…whatever your heart feels. Just think about fate, soul mates and create!

        Anja, I love the art. Can I use it with attribution? Is this meant to be flash fiction?

        Of course you can use it and write whatever or however you like. 🙂

        I had trouble with this one, because it was an adult themed prompt, and I write for kids. I liked your take on it very much!

        You could have written for kids 🙂
