The Reason Why I Wrote A Fairytale

by | Dec 21, 2017

I chose to write Just the Way You Are in a fairy-tale format for a couple of reasons. Firstly, fairy-tales have been around for centuries and therefore seemed like the appropriate through which to reach kids and young adults, who are my target audience. I figured, why reinvent the wheel if I don’t need to? Secondly, fairy-tales are tried-and-true and beloved format through which to tell a story. With that said, writing a fairy-tale seemed like the most logical way to educate children and young adults about people with disabilities while also entertaining them. Do you agree with my reasoning? Do you think I could better reach children and young adults through a different story format? If so, please feel free to comment on this post or contact me through my website and let me know. Until next time…happy reading and, as always, don’t forget to love yourself just the way you are 🙂
