Before I launch into this week’s challenge, I wanted to mention the problems some of you are having with getting hold of my book, ‘The Siege and Other Award Winning Short Stories’. If you’re in the UK or US, it’s pretty straight forward and you can download it from Amazon UK or Amazon US. I know a few of you in India have tried to download it through the UK site but haven’t been able to. I’ve done some research and you can download it through Amazon India (see links for Amazon UK, US and India under ‘My Latest Book’ page). Other overseas students and followers have let me know that they’ve been able to download it through the Amazon US site even if they’re not resident in the US.
If you still have problems, let me know and I’ll check with my publisher. The book should be available on a number of other e-book sites.
Now onto My Weekly Writing Challenge: I gave you a single line to insert into your story/poem last week, ‘I wish I hadn’t done it’. And all your characters certainly shouldn’t have done it! I loved the ideas you came up with. Read them all below.
This week’s challenge is for you to take a fairytale e.g. Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast, Hansel and Gretel etc and give it a modern twist. Rewriting a fairytale is great fun so let’s see what you can come up with!
Here are last week’s entries. Settle back and be entertained:
Eddy has been busy over the past couple of weeks. I’ve missed his entertaining pieces, as I’m sure have you. He’s back with a bang:
