Yayyy!!!…Summer is here. So I can post again. Anyways, I am not even going to start about what I’ve been through in the last month and a half. Long story short….12th grade is hard. However, now I don’t have to worry about all that so I’m going to jump right into blogging again.
So I’ve been into fairy tales lately and i’m kinda trying to bend, twist and fracture them…it’s not really working.
Seriously, i don’t know how authors do it but i’m no “reteller”. A storyteller maybe but not a ‘reteller’. I never thought of fairy tales this highly until now. they are like gems for the writing world though the stories have been collected mostly and not written. Fairy tales have have given us so much…right from when we were kids. They teach us about hope, courage, morals, etc. (though it’s done in the most cliche way possible). We Never Forget Fairy Tales.
I still remember my mom reading me fairy tales during bed time and when all the stories were done, we’d start all over again.
It’s like you’re in a different world.
I know that the original fairy tales were…..gross, but actually that gets me even more interested. (I’m always on the hunt for the truth!) I’ve heard about the originals and the story lines of Red Riding Hood, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, etc. but I haven’t read them. (Add to bucket list!) anyways, the fact that the ‘once perfect characters’ like Snow White and Red were originally not that perfect really gets me hooked. It proves that they were people and like any other person they had flaws;now, that’s one of the most important thing in a “Character”. Flaws are a absolute requirement to make the character believable and though I love the Fairy Tales, I have to say that most of the characters , especially the protagonists in the tales were not believable. So, I think that fairy tales are like bricks for us writers to build the whole house (bad analogy? Good analogy?)
So, go ahead have fun and I will keep trying to bend, twist and fracture !!!
P.S The Picture is my copy of the Grimm’s Fairy Tales. Originally it belonged to my dad and I think it belonged to his dad…..so its a pretty old copy (treasure!!)
Disappear, disappear don’t look back
Disappear before the big attack
Disappear before you fade
Disappear before you’re slayed
Keep the darkness within
The secrets under your skin
Don’t even shed a trace of a word
If you do, there’s no cure
Dig the grave; It’s done, it’s craved
Of all the curses you enslaved
Don’t let a word or a whisper slip
Don’t let the demons of your sins drip
It’s hard, hard to restrict
Hard for the clandestine to sit
Slowly creeping up to the surface
A heart’s thrill but a mind’s disgrace
So brace yourself for the worst
It’s rare for your life to be uncursed
And if you fail don’t look at me
Because this is what you chose to be
