FAIRYTALES WITH BITE
I share what might appear in the classified adverts in a magical world periodical. Fairytale Adverts brings you the For Sales and the Wanted columns. Hope to follow on with this tomorrow. (I do love writing the more light-hearted posts. In a world which is anything but light-hearted, a chuckle or two is always welcome I find).

Being Dropped Right in It looks at how characters react to this. It can happen as a direct result of you, the writer, playing God and throwing all sorts of obstacles in the way of your characters (which is huge fun to do!). Equally, you can get your other characters to drop them in it (though they should have sound reasons for doing so). How do your characters react to things like this? Do they handle it well or fall apart?

I have a soft spot for proverbs and sayings, if only because I often use them as the theme for my stories. It’s what they’re there for, really!
