“Once upon a time there was magical woman who loved fairy tales. But alas, the evil monster had eaten every tale in the land. And thus the magical woman had no more power, because all her power was bound up in the tales she would tell around the fire at night. …”
Once upon a time there was magical woman who loved fairy tales. But alas, the evil monster had eaten every tale in the land. And thus the magical woman had no more power, because all her power was bound up in the tales she would tell around the fire at night.
So, one day when she was moping around the house, half hearted swinging her sword and chasing her cats, a crow flew into the open window, and cawed.
“Caw, caw,” it said. That’s what she heard.
“Hey you!” is what he really said.
But she was smart enough to remember him from the last time he brought her an important message.
“Crow, what have you come to tell me this time?” she said, then threw the sword down in frustration because she knew she wouldn’t be able to understand him.
He shook a claw at her. At first she was insulted, then she realized that a small note was wrapped around his leg. She whispered a thanks to the gods and the crow, and carefully detached the note from his leg.
He flew off with a loud and final “Caw!” while she unscrolled the note.
This is what it said:
“Lady Wizard, you are cordially invited to a class to unlock your stories, and thwart the evil monster of stale stories and writus blockus. For your magic is within.
But you must Beware! This class is not for the faint at heart, but I know that you, Lady Wizard, are up to the challenge, for your pen is your sword and your sword your pen! Act now and Sign up now to get $55 off.
And so she did.
And this is what she read:
