Title: Santharian Fairy Tales, Batch II
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 28 February 2016, 00:15:37
Coming up within the next week: The next batch of fairy tales I've been working on. Here the titles and page counts for now to give you an idea:

- The Hobbit-Hole (12 pages)
- Giant Mistake (8 pages)
- Brother's Keeper (5 pages, revision of existing text "The Two Brothers")
- The Storyteller (13 pages)
- The Yearning Birch (7 pages)

Next tale I consider writing might be a bit of a horror short for a change. Maybe a very short one this time. We'll see.

Introduction: Reading books on all kinds of heroic deeds isn't enough for the youth Sanmar, rather he wants to see the world himself. Which is why the bookworm sets out and goes adventuring. Pretty soon his courage would be tested already, for a man eating giant has occupied a pass nearby - and the land is in desperate need of a hero...

Introduction: An old experienced writer is confronted with a predicament he isn't used to: he fails to come up with another tale. Days and days go by until his grandson suggests to help him with writing a story. But is the imagination of a five year old enough to inspire something that is more than just a slapdash five year old's tale?

Size: 8 pages

Introduction: A birch tree growing next to a farmstead is musing about her life.
