Fable is a short tale to teach a moral lessons, often used animals as main characters or inanimate objects.. I want to write this kind of themes.. or maybe an adaptation but can't think of a good one... i don't like those famous stories but i love those that rare to heard but touching and really heart warming... it will be good if i can make one but i don't think if i can make it right away... maybe i'm just desperate that i wanted to write it on the spot just to be productive in my past five months... hmmm.. kind'a stressed.. need to find references but don't have too much time... i'm just thinking if someone can help me in this matter... or someone will read this... let me see.. if anyone can read this... please, don't give some offensive comments, i don't need it right now, reserved it, we can talk that some day, but not now, i'm kind feel low, and i don't think, reading bad comments in this post will burst me,,, if you don't want what you read just skip... all i need are ideas or suggestions or references.. i will owe it to you if you can help me... thanks mylotters...

Why not try to use your personal life experiences and lessons as the main plot in your fables? Then from there, work on your chosen animal characters to play your story.

Hello meipan! It will come, mostly by interacting or involving yourself with the surrounding, watch how children play and how innocently they interact with the simplest things around them. See also that you put your most innocent heart into your story, use your childhood experiences and thrill yourself with favorite things! :) If I had more time I would probably make one! :) Keep it up and let us know how it goes!

Hello there meipan!There is one thing I can suggest to you so that you can be inspired in writing fables.As you can see fables are derived from lesson in our lives which in return can teach a reader a moral lesson.Why not derive a scenario from your own experience?I mean try to recall all the events in your life assess it and picl those moral lessons that you have learned from it.That way it will be more personal and no one will have to judge your decision if it's good or bad because it was based on your own experience.

Well,as we all well know that fable is not easy to write because it not only short but also will teach reader a deeply moral lessons,and we all read a lot of fables in our childhood but I don't think that it will suitable for right now,but I still have some idea want to tell you,and that is,you can watch some management story in work,because nowadays there are so many fables between the employee and employer,may be you can get some inspiration from it. Good luck to you!

From what I read about creativity and ideas, we should not think about it and leave it and do something else - something relaxing. The ideas will come to you out of a sudden since you have ponder it long enough earlier on. According to a script writer, he got inspiration and stories just from watching people walk about at the mall. Since you have great interest in Fables, I believe you can do it. Moral of stories are based on the society and its people. Looking at them doing their normal things will give you the ideas. All the best!

I think that you are very encouraging to all writers. Wanting to write a book of fables with morality in the writing is very well defined in your personality and talents as a writer. I wish you the best of luck with your writing. I am

I think you should kind of pay attention to kids' (or even adults') behaviours and find a problem in their behaviour that really seems a huge deal for you, which you want to change their opinions about. I'm not necessarily thinking about really hi-tech world ones, like being too much on Facebook, but, like, not listening to each other enough or thinking some people exaggerate a problem, when they really are in trouble... or parents not spending enough quality time with their kids.

Hi meipan How are you friend. Well first of all, stop worrying and start reading. If you want to write something good you should first read something very good or just read something. If you are aiming to right some moral stories i suggest you start with reading people, and their behavior towards the situation. I dont know whether this is a right advice but what you described as fables, reminded me of a book by George Orwell named animal farm, its a very short book but with a deep meaning in it. Take a look if you have the time. its really really well written and very short just about 90 pages or something. And if you are depressed go take a walk and fresh up. I always suggest that you take a short trip to anywhere new before writing it'll definetly clear up and also provide you with a new perspective towards life and place. All the best. Hope it helps tell me when you are finished i'd like to read such things and oh try reading fanfics too.

The only thing I can suggest is that you find a kids and watch their behavior and from that get a moral values that you think that child needs and find a pet where that child would love to play with... and then from it find your story... It can be magical... hope I did help somehow. God bless you.
