Catharine and Telis

I think reading The Secret Garden has gotten me in the mood to explore fairy tales again. And I’ve wanted to pick up this story to finish for quite some time.

Project: Beautiful Catharine (working title)
Deadline: ??
Writing for: Cabinet des Fées??
New words written: 3485
Present total word count: 4391
Total Word Count for 2011: 93,505
Things Accomplished in Fiction: Catharine tries to figure out if Telis is telling her the truth, or if he’s just a plain idiot. He helps her find her true voice once again, but the dangerous villagers come back to the forefront again.

Not quite sure if I want to leave this story as is. I’m never entirely sure with stories that end on a sad note, and it’s not something I do all the time. However for this piece, I feel like it’s almost necessary for the message to get across. Not all fairy tales end with a “Happily Ever After” after all.

    • Yeah and figuring out whether it should end on a positive note or not, sometimes that’s the hardest part. Especially when fairy tales are involved. For some reason there’s a general belief that they should always end happily.
