What is it about fairy tales…

…that make your stories go into Wrongtown?

I’m about 500 words into my second Week 6 story. It’s a pseudo-fairy tale, and for some reason it keeps taking me to Wrongtown. But young girls and unspeakable desire just seem to add up to wrongness when you’ve entered fairy tale land. Or maybe it’s just me.*

*I don’t think it’s just me, actually. This story is not quite as far into Wrongtown as Angela Carter’s ‘The Snow Child’ but it’s definitely living next door to it.
