"Once Upon a Time..."

Welcome one and all to my new and improved blog! Before, I was blogging on random topics ranging from art to politics to why I'd make an excellent fraggle, but I lost interest in this as a creative outlet and, besides, nobody was reading it anyway. So the blog fell by the wayside until now.

For some time now, I have been working on a book of fairy tales. I have written several new adaptations of classic stories and even one or two original fairy tales of my own devising. Though someday I hope to see them published in book form, I thought this would be a good way to share my stories with the world. So, every Friday, look for a new story.

I would also just like to say at the outset, that my stories are culled from several different versions. For instance, my "Cinderella" includes elements from the Grimm Brothers story, a few film versions, television adaptations and a few ideas that I threw in. This is pretty much how fairy tales were written by Jacob and Wilhelm (as well as many others who don't get nearly enough credit) for centuries. I'm just continuing the tradition in my own way.

With that, I embark on this new endeavor, in the hopes that my stories will bring a smile to your face, a tear to your eye, or just take you back to a time when true love, magic powers, talking animals, high adventure and happy endings all seemed possible. I hope you enjoy it. I think you will.

Y'r ob'd't,
Templeton Moss
