A Fairy Tale

So I have far too many ideas in my head and I have lost count of how many stories I have started with just one chapter before being taken over by inspiration for a new different story. I am working on three stories right now: The Prize, the rewrite of Wonderwall, and a new one that I have not spoken about yet. I have not yet officially chosen a title but so far, I am working with Some Kind of Fairy Tale and yes, it is indeed a modern fairy tale. Each chapter will be named after a different fairy tale and there will be the common elements found in almost every single recorded fairy tale.

I know a lot of you like when I write stories with older, more mature characters instead of high-schoolers so this story will be for you - the two main characters, Andrew Kennedy and Caroline "Carrie" Grant, are in their mid-twenties. I have been working on the first chapter for some time but I will not post it until I am completely satisfied with it. Here is the intro though:

Once upon a time, in a kingdom far, far away known to most as Chicago, there lived a handsome prince. He was the wealthiest man in all of the kingdom and he lived in the tallest tower, looking down at everyone beneath him. Some say he was a cruel man who put his greed and his selfishness before all others…

That is Andrew Kennedy's introduction and the first chapter will take time to let you meet the two main characters and get some insight into their lives. With these three stories I am working on, I work on one every day. Saturday was The Prize, yesterday was Wonderwall, and today was Some Kind of Fairy Tale. This writing schedule is the only way I can possibly find time to write all of this. I love to write and the ideas just keep coming. Let me know what you think of how this story sounds.

Great idea! I can't wait to read it.
I'm not sure if I like the actor you chose to be Andrew, but we'll see how it goes in the story, how you describe him.

I'm really look foward to reading this and I hope you have it ready asap!

Love Annie.

Color me Excited! I can't wait to see how you incorporate the fairy tales with the moder day plot. What a creative feat. I love it when your muse is pumping full time. It just makes me happy to hear about all of your ideas. It make me realize how completely UnCreative I am, but I appreciate your creativity all the more because of my lack. All that to say Yeah, and can't wait to read it!
