SOL #13 - March 13th
Here we are on day 13 of the Slice of Life March - a writing challenge hosted by Stacey and Ruth at "Two Writing Teachers". It has been a bit of a challenge, but well worth the effort - especially the chance to meet the other slicers.
I was trying to plan what I would create for the collage for "Collage Obsession's" art challenge this week. The theme was "fairy tales" and instead of art, my first thought was a modern fairy tale. I hope to adapt it to a collage later.
A Modern Fairy Tale
Once upon a time in a land not too far away, a young girl dreamed of being a writer and an artist. She wrote stories and drew pictures.
But she grew up and put away her dreams. She became a teacher, married, had children, divorced, remarried. Then her children moved out and began their own lives.
Slowly, those old dreams began to resurface. She painted and collaged, took some courses and made art.
One day, she picked up a pen and wrote a story and then another.
Those childhood dreams had blossomed. She dared to call herself an artist and a writer.
Dreams, not matter how old (50 years!!), can become real.
