Not A Happy Story

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

I’ve been working my way through Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events lately. I wanted to have them fresh in my mind before I started watching the Netflix Original Series based on the books. If ever there was a series that lived up to its name this one is it. The story of the Baudelaire Orphans is indeed full of bad luck and unfortunate events. No one can claim to be surprised by this as the narrator tells us in pretty much every book that if we want a happy story we should put down the book and choose another. Take inspiration from this and write a story in which you announce the tone of the story at the very beginning. Like a self fulfilling prophecy of a sort, spend the rest of the story bringing this story to the point you informed the audience it would reach.

Keep Dreaming Beautiful Thinkers,

The Boy In The Heart Shades
