Many years ago, I was in a Barnes & Noble and they had their versions of classic books. One of these was Grimm’s Complete Fairy Tales, containing over two hundred famous, and not-so famous, tales. These stories have lasted for centuries, I told myself. So I bought a copy figuring I could learn their secrets. The book sat on my shelf for several years.
A couple years ago, I joined a site where you were paid when people interacted with your posts. I was looking for something I could do a long series of posts with. I then remembered Grimm’s Complete Fairy Tales. My plan was to read a tale and write up a short review of it. I did this whenever I had the time, and I managed to get through the first sixty tales when the site imploded. Fortunately, I was able to backup my posts before they disappeared from the internet. They have sat in my inbox for about a year, and I’ve decided I should continue the project.
