Just the other day, I came across something (I think it was a Facebook post) complaining that it seemed like princes were always out to slay the dragon and there were no stories where the princes were actually the ones in need of saving.
I just smiled to myself. I didn’t comment, just walked away.
You see, I’ve already written that story.
Now, I’m going to share it with you.
I was 15 when I originally wrote this story and turned it in for an assignment to a college-level workshop on writing children’s fiction which I was taking at the time. I have only made minor corrections to the story here — it is pretty close to the first writing. I keep thinking I will go back and flesh this story out some — it would be fun to do. But here, now, I will share it with you in all its cheesy glory.
A children’s fantasy about a prince who has met his match. Available for 1 week only! Then, it will turn back into a pumpkin and a new story will appear.
The Smelly Prince
This story was available for one week only and has now turned back into a pumpkin. If you missed it, click on the links below to find another great story to read. There’s also another free story or story partial somewhere around my blog – I try to post something new every Wednesday. Hunt the story down, read, and enjoy!
