Short explanation: last night, I couldn't sleep. I thought about fairy tales. One of my friends, earlier, commented to me that he wanted to do NaNoWriMo this year. Would I do it with him? I told him I would. So, as a result, this year for NaNoWriMo, I'll be writing a fairy tale (for children) every day. This'll make thirty in all. I began a development blog (here) for the purpose of breaking down the idea of the fairy tale. Before November, I'd like every element to be well-developed and thought out properly. My goal is to write fairy tales for the sake of fairy tales (as is said in the first post). I do have a slightly darker agenda, though, to be honest. Cain and Jarrod (the series title) will be split through. There'll be Cain and Jarrod: for children, featuring a child-sized boy named Cain and his best friend, a talking crow named Jarrod. The purpose of the children's series will be to show the beauty of trees, and animals, and all that crap. Further, there'll be Cain and Jarrod: for adults, featuring an adult Cain, a mystical crow that does not speak out loud, and an additional character: the devil, who does not represent evil, but represents alternative. The purpose here is to show the beauty of nature and the abhorrent nature of humanity. So, my questions: what do you think about the idea of fairy tales for adults? Also, if you have children of your own, do you read them fairy tales, or just those little ditties about Ernie and Bert going to the beach and wearing sunscreen?
