Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist,
but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten. –Neil Gaiman

The Fairy Tale
Fairy tales are, above all else, a story—fiction, with magic, rules or a task, and they usually speak to a cultural truth or lesson to be learned. You will attempt to create a new fairy tale or thoroughly modernize an older one.
If modernizing an older story, you might borrow details or plot points from the stories that came before yours. Be careful to go in a new direction and not to copy too much from the language, plot, or voice of the original story. Instead—imagine the character anew. What changes? The story must be yours.
If you are not updating an older story, create the story you would want to read—something that speaks to this generation (modern) or would fit in with the older stories we have been reading (no particular place & time). Choose your details wisely.
In each case, your story must show attention to craft (language, voice, tone, structure), genre (clear signs of fairy tale), and reader (answer the “so what?” question—why are you telling us this story?).
I want from you to use a new story idea, use your own idea by following the instructions.
