I love a great fairy tale. They really stand the test of time. From the very earliest known stories passed down from generation to generation to the new age tales. They incorporate the basic good vs. evil with great abandon. There is no way to improve on these classics. Right? Wellll, I thought what if we give them some new twists and maybe update them a little. Here are my takes on a few of my favs.
Snow White and the Seven Followers:
After fleeing the evil Queen of Blogland Snow White strikes out on her own. Finding a merry band of Seven Followers she learns to trust herself and find her true love in the Blogosphere.
List of the Seven Followers:
6. Dead Link
7. Word Verification
Beauty and the Agent
After Beauty becomes lost in Manuscript Forest she must climb Query Mountain to find the lofty castle lair of the Agent. Through many e-mail encounters and pleasantries Beauty tames the Agent and falls in love with him thus shattering the rose curse of the slush pile.
Goldilocks and the Three Critiquers
While walking in Spellcheck Woods, Goldilocks stumbles upon the home of the Three Critiquers.
Momma Critiquer's advice was too simplistic
Papa Critiquer's advice was too eloquent.
Baby Critiquer's was just right......
Tune in next week when we go behind the scenes of the new reality show "Rapunzel, Revision's Mistress" and crack the mob ring better know as Brother's Grammar.
Do you have a twist you'd like to see in a fairy tale?
