A Suprise Ending


Choose a well-known children’s story or fable (such as “Jack and the Beanstalk,” “Little Red Riding Hood,” or “The Three Little Pigs,” just to name three possibilities), and rewrite it with a surprise twist or ending.
  • This is an informal assignment. Your story doesn’t need to be more than a page long.
  • Use one-inch margins and a 12-point font.

Tips for Success

  • Think about setting, mood, atmosphere, and suspense before you start writing. Will the details you give about the setting create a mood that will lead the reader to expect the kind of ending you have in mind? Or will you try to lead the reader in another direction altogether?
  • Keep in mind that the setting of many children’s stories can be vague (“Once upon a time in a land far away,” for example). You may have to rewrite to make your setting more specific.
  • If your ending is especially nasty, please avoid gory details. As “The Interlopers” proves, gruesome endings are more powerful if they’re left to the imagination!
