Earlier in the tale weaving saga, Michael encouraged us to write bedtime stories for adults. I’m revisiting that prompt, with a wink and a nod, and thinking concepts like: an evil fairy godmother; family/personal revenge (Big Bad Wolf vs the Riding Hoods); Snow White as seductress or kept woman taking advantage of the dwarves’ affection; a reversal of fortunes in a previously happy ever after story; Rapunzel gets a hair cut. I think you get the idea.
If your naughtiness strays into adult material, please include an opening statement telling the reader the material is of that nature.
So play with the idea of weaving a new version of an old fairy tale, turn the genre upside, write from the villain’s perspective or add a bit of spice.
