Now if you don’t know what those words mean, I’ve included a link to the Wikipedia page on each of them. I don’t care how you use these words in your fairy tale, but it must be school-appropriate. It must also suit the genre of fairy tale, by including magic and at least one fairy.
Your setting can be modern-day or long ago in a land far, far away.
This is the trick: you can’t write it as a fable. It must be a fairy tale. You can’t write it as a legend either, so it can’t include any real people, living or dead. And it can’t be a myth. So make sure you understand the definition of fairy tale before you begin writing your story!
Also, you must use the bulleted words in their correct context. So in other words, it’s not acceptable to just name your characters “Marmalade”, “Redundant”, and “Fatigue”–that won’t do. If you try to cheat like this (instead of looking up the links and reading about them) then your story will be disqualified for not following directions.
Remember to put a space between your paragraphs, and don’t forget this rule: new speaker = new paragraph. Use quotation marks for dialog. Use good spelling and punctuation overall. If you need help, consult your “English Handbook Pages“.
