Cinderella’s Shoe Blogfest

Don't worry GUYS this isn't some Girlie-Chick-Lit thing!
So Cinderella loses a shoe that is recovered by the Prince and restored to its rightful owner, all ending happily ever after. Babette Cole did an updated version, 'Prince Cinders', where Cinders loses his jeans.

YOUR CHALLENGE is to write max 500 word piece or a poem about any character who loses something that when found by another results in their mutual happiness/relief/salvation/ Or whatever.

This is just the prelimary announcement to get everyone's creative juices flowing.
The linkey for those who want to join in and play will be posted up nearer the time, so that those who want to participate can link directly to their blogfest item.

  1. Count me in! I shall start losing things in preparation. LOL.

  2. I like this! Great idea. :)

  3. LOL Ellie! That's a good idea, you never know what might happen.

    Glad you like it Liz & Joanna.

    Don't forget to link on 22nd/23rd or 24th Oct. :O)

  4. Love the glittery shoe there. I'll see what I can do, but this month is crazy so I can't promise.

  5. What a wonderful idea!!! Let me see what I can't come up with!!!

  6. Let me ponder this one. I'd sworn off blogfests for a while, but don't ever believe me when it comes to writing fiction.

    Tossing It Out

  7. LOl! I'm glad it inspires you Carolyn, Jen, Julie and hopefully, Lee, enough for you to come out of your blogfest fast? :O)

  8. Sounds like fun, but not sure if I'll be able to join in as I'm going away.

  9. All in! I think I have just the right excerpt from my WIP for it too! YES! Though... in just 500 words it may end up being like a teaser trailer... and finding this particular thing (in my story) leads to terrible consequences... EVEN BETTER! Can't wait!

  10. Well have a great holiday Debs and i hope you get lots of material for your writing.
    Ooh how exciting Erica! Can't wait :O)

  11. Hi,
