Writing a Fairy Tale
The book presents some ideas that I never knew and if I knew I knew the least. I was so much familiar with one of the weaknesses of writing that scholars do get into. I was so much conversant with the confusing caper concerning the super-long sentence as one of the pitfalls of writing. It is commonly obvious that if one has difficulty in briefing conversations, he or she not only confuse himself or herself but also his or her audience. This too applies to writing too long sentences tend to confuse more than informing. The first chapter of the book is the most informative as it confronts the common mindset and knowhow of people that grammar is key to writing.
Once upon a time, there lived a king with beautiful daughters. Even the sun was astonished with the beauty of the king’s youngest daughter. This youngest daughter had a custom of playing in a nearby forest using her golden plaything. One day, when she was playing in the forest her golden favorite plaything rolled into the frog’s deep well. The daughter was helpless and only had to cry. The frog had her cry and came out to negotiate with her on the price of bringing her the ball. The frog denied all the material things offer by the king’s daughter in demand of companion. The daughter trickily administered the frog’s demand. After the frog brought the ball the daughter without a word ran to their home. The frog went back to the well.
The next day the frog went to the palace and knocked the door. The daughter was quick enough to open the door but to her surprise it was the frog. She closed the door but her father was quick to notice her surprise and so he inquired on what happened and the daughter narrated to him her story with frog. The king reminded her daughter that it is important to keep promises and she has to let the frog in. The daughter had a hard time with the frog since her father insisted on the promise loyalty.
The next morning a carriage approached the palace driving up with eight horses all of white color on their heads having white ostrich feathers. The horses were harnessed with golden chains. Behind was the king’s servant Henry. To our surprise the frog was Henry’s master cracked into his heart iron bands.
