How to write a fairy tale

Updated on April 10, 2015

Writing fairy tales is easy!

So you want to know how to write a fairy tale? I can tell you how. I am professional writer for more than twenty years and I wrote about three hundred fairy tales and short stories for children, all published (radio shows, magazines, picture books, collections of short stories and audio books).

I am among most popular authors in Slovenia and I got several awards for my writings for kids and adults. Most important of all, I can support my family with my work and stories for kids are among best family resources because of their potential of passive income producing.

Enough about me. You came here to learn about writing. I have a good news: writing a fairy tale is pretty easy. Same stands for every kind of story writing, including stories for kids. In most cases you need just couple of hours to make your very own if you follow some simple rules.

I'll try to present them as illustrated step by step instructions. Look at them, take some time to enjoy their beauty and think about great stories they represent.

Hi ho, let's go!

Writing a tale...

You need a hero...

You need a character your audience can relate with. It can be human being, animal, plant or object. It really doesn't matter, but in practice humans and animals were always best for the main role.

If you want a teapot playing main character in your fairy tale, be my guest. Hans Christian Andersen and Oscar Wilde wrote several pretty good ones with objects in leading roles but even in their best works main characters are humans or animals.

The most important thing is set of characteristics. Your hero must have some characteristics the reader of fairy tale can relate to. Is he funny? Smart? Brave? Nice? Good-looking? And even more important: what are his shortcomings? Is he too small? Too weak? Too shy? Too lazy? Boring?

Good example is a main character in Valiant Little Tailor. Every child, boy or girl, can totally relate with him because every kid has to deal with mean spirited giants (adults who simply have too much power) on daily basis.

Make your hero believable!

Positive set of characteristics makes your character a hero.

But only with some faults he can be believable hero!

Great example of heroine in fairy tales

...or heroine!

We can debate about equal rights, living in 21st century and so on, but let's face it: lady in trouble always sounds great as a basic story synopsis.

Almost all of most famous (or may I say popular or even profitable) fairy tales of all times use that idea. Kids of both genders can easily sympathize with girl in some sort of trouble, because...

Well, kids are in all sorts of troubles most of the time too. No problem to identify with a hero of the story... So if you want to know how to write a story for kids, you actually just put your main character in some sort of troubles

O.k., we have a hero or heroine, but we certainly need something else!

(Little Red Riding Hood, illustrated by Walter Crane)

Do you prefer reading a book to learn the tricks of the trade?

Writing stories is a craft, everybody can do that:)

For some reason many of us decide to write a fairytale. Most of these creations will never be published but they can still give us tremendous pleasure when we make them and read them. Just to ourselves or to wider audience.

The basic rules are really simple and they can be covered by a cheat sheet presented in this page. But in most cases you will still need a little extra to make a really good story for kids. Maybe you can get some help from the books written by people who had already done it several times?

They share their tips in great books in your nearest store: Amazon on-line!

Once Upon a Time: Writing Your Own Fairy Tale (Writer's Toolbox)
Once Upon a Time: Writing Your Own Fairy Tale (Writer's Toolbox)

Really practical guide with easy to follow rules. You'll have your very own treat for children in no time!

And you'll have some fun too:)

 

Creating a good character takes some time

Yes, creating interesting and convincing character can be time consuming. Actually pretty time consuming.

But I can disclose you a little trick (I use it all the time, but I have some even better tricks in my sleeve).

When you create a good character, you can use him (or her) in many fairy tales or stories.

Of course even the greatest character is not enough!

Snow White by Franz Juttner
Snow White by Franz Juttner

Every single story (for kids or not) needs a setting

Yours should be no exception

What is a setting? Well, think about place and time of your story. Does it start once upon a time when young girl must leave her home because of poverty, or is it a modern tale about divorced parents who fight for their only kid?

What is its range? Will everything happen in couple of minutes, or will it last for decades?

How important will your setting be? Will determine heroes' actions or will just add some touch of credibility?

Don't forget the possible symbolic meanings of setting! Fairy tales are stories about growing up. So in most cases you should start a story with a kid or youngster facing a great challenge. Challenge should be bigger than him, it should be so big, the reader could feel the possibility of being lost in the situation.

And what is better place to be lost in than dark dark woods?

Write Your Own Fairy Tale
Write Your Own Fairy Tale

Yes, it is possible to write a one, just right to suit your needs, your audience, your taste.

Your story, your rules. Welcome to the world of creativity and imagination!

 

Send your hero on the mission!

Jack and Beanstalk by Jessie Wilcox Smith
Jack and Beanstalk by Jessie Wilcox Smith | Source

What is his quest? Is he searching for wealth? Love? Wisdom? Wants to rescue or protect somebody? Set his goal!

Set it high!

Then think again...

Can you set it even higher?

Don't forget -.in most of great stories the biggest obstacle to heroes' success is hero himself!

Narcissus admiring his image
Narcissus admiring his image

In quest for success we really have only our limitations. So we have to overcome them, improve ourselves and earn a reward - a change, become responsible and respective part of society.

Introduce a helper...

illustration by William H. Robinson
illustration by William H. Robinson

In old stories for kids we have wise men, in fairy tales fairies, in real life friends, ...

With a helper you don't only introduce a new skill, you can open a whole new world of interactions among characters.

Human being is never a lone island. Even Robinson Crusoe had Friday!

...or more helpers!

Snow White by Franz Juttner
Snow White by Franz Juttner

... the more the merrier!

Cinderella from Alexander Zick

Don't underestimate side-characters!

In most stories a side-character is introduced only because of his function (to do something instead of hero, to give him important information, magic object, etc.), but it is your job to at least try adding him some depth.

Think about the hunter in Snow White. Think about his dilemmas. He surely didn't want to hurt Snow White, but if he wouldn't listen the evil queen, he would put in danger his and his family's lives!

Every dilemma makes a story stronger, more recognizable, better!

Now you just need to add a pinch of magic!

Cinderella and Fairy Godmother by Oliver Herford

Make your stories through play! - Writing stories as a child's play!

Yes, you read it right. Making your own stories is fun and you don't even have to be literate for this. You can actually learn how to write a story for kids without noticing you are learning!

eeBoo Create and Tell Me A Story Cards, Fairy Tale Mix-Up
eeBoo Create and Tell Me A Story Cards, Fairy Tale Mix-Up

This is a game for a whole family. You get a set of cards and each card presents a character, setting or other typical element of a fairy tale.

The game comes with clear instructions, it is suitable for kids from three years above, but it really offers a lot of fun to everybody involved.

Quality time, family bonding and playful way to learn about the composition of a story - who wants more?

 

A fairy tale or a story?

If you wanted learn how to write a story for kids, you can skip this part.

But if you want to write a fairy tale, some kind of magic should be added too!

Most effective climax is a confrontation of the heroes with their nemesis

Hansel and Gretel by Arthur Rackahm
Hansel and Gretel by Arthur Rackahm | Source
Three Little Pigs by Leonard Leslie Brooke
Three Little Pigs by Leonard Leslie Brooke | Source

The final confrontation

Don't be too easy on your hero or the audience. Especially don't be too easy on yourself!

We all know how fairy tale should end...

But if you want to write great story add something special, some surprise, maybe humor, unexpected twist, just something to remember.

Note: harder the battle, more glorious the win!

Give your audience a happy ending!

They breathed and trembled with your hero.

They expect happy ending.

They deserve it!

Do you believe, you can write a fairy tale now?

Well, do you?

See results

It is really nothing extraordinary. In fact everybody already lives his very special fairy tale right now!

Will you try to make your own story for children?

      This is really great information. I have never even written a short story myself, even though I tried many times. I start really great, move forward then get stuck somewhere and I drop it there unfinished. I usually struggle with finding a climax.

      @anonymous: I don't have a system for creating messages. sometimes something happens and I feel the message with such intensity to build a story around it without any planning. On other occasion I simply 'steal' a message from old story, like I presented in my step by step instructions bellow (example: Cricket and Ant by Esop) and make a story with original view, or twisted message, or completely new setting etc.

      I hope I answered your question. If not, give me more details...

      @webscribbler: Thanks for your explanation. Although I understand the informational oriented writing doesn't have a lot of space for poetic elements, I believe all writers can add something special to any kind of writing. I was working as a sport journalist for several years and trust me - even a boring soccer game can be presented as exciting piece... I also 100 percent agree with you thoughts on writing for small circle of audience like family etc. The most important thing is to try.

      Thanks again for your kind visit!

      webscribbler 4 years ago

      @TolovajWordsmith: I think you may have misunderstood my post. It was meant to be a compliment to you. Reading it again, I'm not sure it turned out that way.

      I write primarily informational pieces. My dandelion lens that you so generously praised is a good example. There's not much room for poetic type writing in the pieces I usually write when conversions and keyword count are more important than writing to draw a picture, create suspense or tell a story. I tend to write tall tree. Getting more visual in my writing is one of the areas I hoped to use Squidoo to work on.

      I do plan on visiting more of your lenses as they provide the first useful information for aspiring writers that I have seen in a long time.

      I love the idea of encouraging people to try. Even if they write fairy tales that only their children will hear and love, they should give it a go. It could even be a family project that becomes a treasured heirloom.

      @webscribbler: Well, it is my intention to sound easy, because I sincerely believe it can be easy. Of course there is no guarantee you will make a masterpiece every time (or at all), but writing is still more of a skill than anything else. Talent can surely help and people without any kind of storytelling talents probably don't even want to write stories. They probably have talents in other areas of life and that's just fine:)

    • profile image

      webscribbler 4 years ago

      You make it sound so easy but I know it's not. Good storytellers can set the scene by describing it to you. They don't say things like "tall tree" they say "the tree's limbs stretched up to the sky, higher than the birds fly". That style of writing takes practice but also a talent that not every writer possesses.

      Thank you for the inspiration and I'm definitely going to check out your other writings too.

      Although I have a difficult time with character development, I will try to write a fairy tale. Thanks, you have provided excellent tips and advice.

      I can see why you've done so well as a writer. I liked and tweeted this lens. The advice you give sounds easy, but to do it well requires a deep understanding of people's psychological makeup. And, you're able to do all that while staying lighthearted. That's rare. I will have to reread this lens a few times, and maybe pick up a couple of the writing books you recommend.
