60 Seconds for Story Prompt Friday: Diamonds and Toads; Toads and Diamonds
by Diane Wyzga | February 25, 2022 | 60 Seconds, Podcast | 0 comments
Hello to you listening in Grants Pass, Oregon!
Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is 60 Seconds for Story Prompt Friday with your host, Diane Wyzga.
Maybe it’s true and maybe it isn’t but once there was a young girl who had a wicked stepmother and her equally wicked daughter. One day the young girl went to the well to fetch water and while there an old crone asked for a drink from the bucket which she was kindly given. As a reward for her kindness the crone gives a magical gift: each time the girl speaks pearls, jewels and roses will fall from her lips.
Seeing this magic the stepmother sends her daughter back to the well to get a reward. There she finds a beautiful princess who asks for water; when she is denied a drink she curses the stepdaughter from whose lips scaly toads, lizards and snakes will fall when she speaks. [original fairy tale version Diamonds and Toads] [revised version Toads and Diamonds]
Story Prompt: I can’t help but wonder: What if we could see our words when we spoke? How might we change or stay the same? Write that story!
Practical Tip: The magic of stories is also in the sharing. If you wish share your story with someone or something. All that matters is you have a story.
You’re invited: “Come for the stories – stay for the magic!” Speaking of magic, I hope you’ll subscribe, share a nice shout out on your social media or podcast channel of choice, including Android, Amazon Music and Audible and join us next time!
