Something to occupy your holiday leisure hours—a writing challenge. It’s one Jeren of itsallaboutnothing and I concocted between us. He wrote a haibun about flying termites which I told him could be the subject of a folk tale. We have challenged one another to write a folk tale based on Jeren’s poem which you can read here.
Don’t be put off by the termites, it’s the wings that are important, that the termites lose or discard in the night, and the dreamer too, perhaps.
If you’d like to join in, leave a link to your story either here, or on Jeren’s blog post. We’d love to read your ‘fake folk tales’.
