Exercise: Top O' The Morning To You!

March is blowing in with greetings from the Irish. On the 17th of this month, we celebrate St. Patrick's Day, where everyone claims to have a bit of blarney in them. Well, instead of raising your beer mugs and toasting to your good health, it's time to pick up your writing utensil and spin us a good yarn. The topic this month is "A Wee Bit O' Irish".

Create a horrific fairy tale as if you were the lost Brother Grimm based on an Irish legend, mythical creature, or folk tale. Extra points if you can tie your fairy tale to St. Patrick's Day in some way.

Stories should be 1,000 words or less and sent to me by March 15, 2007.


  1. Well, I have stories to rework, and an assignment for the Bay Area Writers group...but I will see about getting this done by deadline. Irish, eh?

  2. Yep, Irish all the way. :-) Cool, can't wait to read it.
