Weekly writing prompt #6

An image from Una and the Red Cross Knight

Take your favourite fairytale or legend and have a go at modernising it.

  • What are the modern equivalents of the people and objects in the story?
  • What are the characters like? What drives them?
  • Will you go for a realistic setting or choose a genre such as sci-fi or steampunk?
  • Will you keep the entire story or just use elements of it?

Let yourself really delve into this week’s challenge. Take as much time as you like! If you’d rather use a faster prompt, try this quick character creation challenge from a few weeks ago.
