Why You Should Never Stop Reading Fairytales!

You’re never too old for fairy tales!

Once Upon a Time....

Never Stop Reading Fairy tales! by Karen DeMers Dowdall 

I thought it would be nice to re-post one of my favorite posts about fairy tales. Considering that I am really into fantasy, paranormal, fairytales, and witches, this new blog title suits me to a T…Once Upon a time…. It is far better than just my name (it is way too long). This new blog title really makes me happy. I love fantasy stories that begin with Once Upon a time…Madeleine L’Engles, A Wrinkle in time, however, does not begin Once upon a time…it begins with, “It was a dark and stormy night”…that works too.

I have collected volumes of fairy tale books, everything from all of Hans Christian Anderson to all of the Grimm’s Fairy tales, Scotland Folk Tales, Irish Myths and Folklore, among many other volumes of Fairy tales. Perhaps, one could say, I live in a fairytale world…

Surrounded By Boxes – Stream of Consciousness Saturday #SoCS

socs-badge-2019-2020

 

I know I usually use Linda’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompts as means to get my creative juices flowing and come up with a short little story or practice writing poems, but when she gave this week’s prompt of “pack” or “unpack”, all I could think about is all the boxes that are sitting here around me that I have left to unpack from when I moved apartments back at the end of December. I hated having to pack everything up to begin with and move, and I hate having to unpack and find where things got boxed up to begin with and then find where to put everything. Aside from all the work involved, it’s so time-consuming. The one good thing to come from all the packing and unpacking, I suppose, is that I’ve been able to downsize some of my stuff and get rid of some things that I decided I didn’t really need or want anymore. And I’m sure I’ll be finding more stuff that I will decide I don’t really want or need anymore as I get around to unpacking more stuff.

And I hope that after more unpacking gets done I’ll find more free time to be able to get back to writing more and finally get back to working on my WIP. Hopefully, that will be sooner rather than later. I know what I need to do – unpacking;  it’s just hard sometimes to find the will and energy to do it, especially when working full-time during the week.
