Tale Weaver #11: Bedtime Stories for Grown Up Children

Today we invite you to weave a tale you might tell a grown up child.

It could contain a moral or be instructional in some way.

It could contain a story intended to scare them.

It could be satirical.

It could be simply entertaining.

Remember the origin of the bedtime story was a story designed to settle the child down to a peaceful nights sleep for both themselves and their parents.

Have fun with this, for not every tale has to be nice!!

Please link your tale using the linky below. Please TAG your post: Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie and Tale Weaver.

{While Michael is away on his “grand tour,” he asked me to post his tale weaver prompt. Have fun!}

    No sure this is quite what Michael had in mind, but while Michael is away, any game I can play!

    Not to sound like a total moron, but I’m pleading the “I’m kinda new around here” argument… and I admit, I am slightly less than up to date on links and tags in any form of social media. Can someone help me out with “linky” as seen in the following quote, “Please link your tale using the linky below.”

    Oops — my response seems to have disappeared. When you have, in this case, written your Bedtime Story for Grown Up Children, and posted it on your blog, copy the url. Come back to this page, and click on the linky image — the Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie logo with the words, “Add your link here.” At the blenza space (a place to accumulate urls for posts that others have written), Follow the instructions, and your name becomes the link to your story. You can also go to blenza by the same route to click on other participant’s pieces.
    If you feel nervous about linky or aren’t sure you got it quite right, you can place the url in a comment box.
    My email is phylorsblog@ymail.com if none of this makes sense or you have any other questions.
    Thanks for stopping by and welcome to the neighbourhood.
