Tale Weaver 29.07.21 – A Question of Perspective

Stephanie Colpron is our new host at MLMM- Tale Weaver

Are people born wicked?” (from Wicked, No One Mourns the Wicked) 

A few days ago, I was contemplating the fact that most tales are told from the hero’s perspective. What if the story was told from the villain’s point of view?

Isn’t it all a question of perspective?

So this week, I’d like to invite you to write a story from the villain’s perspective.

Whether you decide to spin an old fairy tale in a new way or write a new story from your villain’s point of view, is your call. It’s your story after all. 

And feel free to include a moral if you wish 

In summary

  • Go where the prompt takes you and have fun!
  • Prose, poetry, fable… please share your stories in whatever style works for you.
  • Keep your stories/quests/tales below 1000 words 
  • Post it on your blog and tag it MLMM, Tale Weaver, Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie
  • Be sure to leave a pingback or a link so we (I) can read your contribution


Story of a stepmother

Don’t believe anyone who tells you that I am wicked! Whatever I do, it’s for my survival and that of my child.

It is not easy to tolerate another woman’s child, but I do it with a smile. I may not be as loving to them as with my own child, but still I do all that is required. It is true that I keep what is best for my own child but tell me which mother wouldn’t? If I argue over who gets the bigger portion, it is my mother’s heart that is at fault, not me!

For too long, people have maligned stepmothers, calling them evil and wicked. Just look at life from my perspective and you’ll know that I’m no villain but a saint in fact!

  1. I always love these types of stories, they provide another perspective which illustrates that things aren’t necessarily black and white
