In our last writing challenge, “Fabulous Fables,” we asked you to write a fable. To review, fables have three main characteristics:
1. They are short stories.
2. The main characters are usually animals acting like people.
3. They teach a moral which is stated at the end of the story.
Aesop’s Fables are the best known, including such familiar tales as “The Tortoise and the Hare,” “The Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing,” and “The Lion and the Mouse.”
For this writing challenge, we’d like you to create an original fable which concludes with this moral:
The bigger they are, the harder they fall.
Here are the steps for completing this writing challenge:
- Use the Alieo Bonus Word List.
- Do not use a prompt to start your fable (unless you want to make it extra challenging).
- Write your fable, and conclude it with the moral, “The bigger they are, the harder they fall.”
