Tale Weaver/Fairy Tale #113: the quest 30.03.17


A common fairy tale theme is the quest – the search for something or someone. It’s a literary device we are familiar with from medieval romances to JRR Tolkien. Most often involving an arduous journey undertaken on your own or in the company of comrades, often “picked up” along the way. There is danger, treachery, evil, friendship, magic, puzzles, romance, action, adventure.

This week, weave a tale about a quest – the threads of the tapestry may be old or new. Your quest can unfold in typical fairy tale fashion, set in a land long ago and far away. Or follow medieval knights or an 18th-19th century adventurers.

But, what would a modern day quest be like? What would the search for, and how would the journey be undertaken? What challenges would the quester of today face? With the cyberverse, would the quester ever really leave their home?

      Love your modern take on the quest — the voice is perfect, and the twist delicious.

        Thank you! Once I had her voice it just wrote itself…

        Isn’t it wonderful when those things happen — your character writes the story and you are the conduit.

      Absolutely wonderful. Annie is a great character and I love the way you use the image then move to the dialogue. If you haven’t read the Paper Bag Princess — give it a try — Annie would love it!
      I love the way you played with the questing theme.

    A quick quest story — waiting for the words to migrate back with the warblers. Bird song and creativity plus the words to express it. In the meantime:
