open stories. The stories by we all for all we
The folktales are written by everybody and anybody. All of the folktales we have herd of are great and we remember them till date. The folktale around the world have similarity and some times are almost copy except there local flavor. And these stories are often not just great entertainers but impart great morals.
Why there is the need for all of us to get involved in story development, in the era flooded with great story writers?
The stories i am talking about are the stories about our environment, racial / religious / gender discrimination, child sex abuse and many more stories which will not be chosen by commercial story writers. Even if they are they may be by very few.
These stories cant be relevant and impressive across the globe but can become relevant if they are tweaked with local examples and given local flavor. Which is more often not possible because copyrights are not affordable, and if gets the rights its not affordable to pay a local writer and print with speculation of it selling well.
But these are important stories, which should be developed with local taste and told in every part of the globe where the subject is relevant. But its more important that these stories are very impressive. Other wise they will fail to do difference.
So these important stories have to be developed with low budgets should be developed in all the relevant local flavors, in as short period of time as possible. But above all have to be really impressive.
The one best way is to collective writing. Every one of us can start a story some thing like how i started this topic every body can continue it and any body can give it great ending. All of us can read press like if we really mean it. Only impressive ones stay.
If you as story teller don't like the most popular version you can pick any other version for the story telling or just cook one of your own.
Copy it, modify it, publish it, make a movie out of it.
Its your and our story a "folk stories" / "folktales"
