Objects as Writing Prompts

I found a small bridal shoe in an alleyway a few years ago.

It looked as if Cinderella had run away.

Remembering her ugly sisters, I collected toenail clippings for years and made this object, which I keep nearby when I’m writing, to remind me of the darkness and light, humour and magic within existing fairy-tales and runaway stories.
