Fairy tale retellings are very popular for a reason. They use tropes and characters that we’re familiar with. For instance, the Cinderella story is a common one across cultures and centuries. Learn how to use these familiar and beloved characters in stories and give them a different twist.
1. Fairy tales, mythology and archetypes – why we love retellings.
2. How to brainstorm twists for your fairy tale worlds.
3. Writing a story that’s the same, but different. Keeping familiar elements while adding your own ideas.
4. Backstories of some well-known tales – they didn’t all start out the way you think!
5. Giving your story the fairy tale flavor even if it’s not faithful to the original story
6. Fairy tale inspired – you can use the idea as a starting point for your own story without having to stick to the original tale.
