Although we’ve just completed a fairy tale prompt, and since we the co-hosts have no fixed schedule for when we decide to play with this genre, other than once a month, I’d thought I’d start the month off with something light and playful. I hope you consider it and choose to play along 🙂
Most are probably familiar with this children’s English nursery rhyme:
Hey diddle diddle,
The cat and the fiddle,
The cow jumped over the moon.
The little dog laughed,
To see such fun,
And the dish ran away with the spoon.

So for this week, here’s your inspiration. Please use this nursery rhyme and either continue the tale – by either expanding the story or adding the backstory – or consider adding some characters – or switching the existing characters up!
Your mission is to re-write this delightfully light and whimsical fairy tale of sorts – as you wish, in whatever form or style you wish. So flash fiction, fiction, prose poetry, poetry etc. – but remember – tell a story.
You have a week to participate.
Please share your responses by linking back to this post, or creating a ping back, and share your responses in the official linky station.
