Exercise #204: Your Thoughts
Posted 3/23/07

Today’s exercise comes from Sue Levy.

Sue said, “I know we are all working on writing in our own voice, but how about an exercise in which we take a story we know well (a fairytale or such) and retell it in the style of a known author? It could take us out of our comfort zone and challenge us.”

So there you have it. Show us what a familiar story would look like in a known author’s style and voice. Since “familiar” is relative, at the top or bottom of your SUB tell us which story and which author you’ve used.

Word limit: 1200
