Double take on a quick tale

Read a quick tale you did not like? Think you would've written it differently? Here's your chance. Go through the archives, pick any tale you like (or dislike), rewrite it in your own words and send it to me at ammania @ gmail.com

Please don't forget to mention the quick tale that inspired yours. I'll wait until the 15th of May before publishing all the entries.

Thank you.

Update: Aiyo! Upon re-reading this post, I realised that it sounds as if I'm crossing swords with the reader. Daring them to do better. Hardly the case. The idea was inspired by A Quick Tale 130 where we did two versions of the same story. This is just to get a fresh perspective. A new spin on an old tale. Thanks.

that is a sound idea... and hey! i did it long back. QT 119 I think. I wrote my take on it. Another perspective.

Ammani, what can I say there are 130 Quick Tales. How do I pick a favourite?

And better it... well that is out of question. (Lost in trance - that is your answer. Different, yes perhaps. Better, I doubt)
