Write a crime fiction story of between 1,000 and 3,000 words (with some flexibility on either end) that is based on the premise of an actual children's fairy tale. For example, a story about a predatory thief based on "Little Red Riding Hood." Post it to your blog or web site, or find someone who will do that for you. Put the link in the comments here. Do so by midnight on Jan. 14, Cinderella, or your coach to (the relative) fame and fortune (of modest web-based attention) will turn back into a pumpkin.Read the whole thing to get all the details. Well, dear readers, I know I'm in on this one. If my hunch is right, I'm guessing that a few of you might be as well.
You don't need to reveal which fairy tale you used as source material. While some will probably be obvious, others may not. Guessing can be part of the fun.
