    fairy tales and true stories

    What are the differences and what should we consider when writing fairy tales and true stories?

    Some differences are quite obvious but not all..Can someone please explain the differences?

    re: fairy tales and true stories

    Fairy tales are literally fantastic. For example, a fairy tale might have animals that talk. Also, a fairy tale is likely to have a moral lesson to it. That might not be the case with a story that is true.

    I don't know. Are you trying to make sure that the reader doesn't confuse a true story with a fairy tale?

    No. Storytelling is storytelling.
