Your assignment is to write a story/fable (in any genre) that will teach this lesson.
No need to use the moral in your post, just write the story and let your readers learn the lesson all on their own.
Please limit your fable to 100 words.
After you’ve written your 100-word fable, ping back to this prompt page by simply pasting this link somewhere on your post.
Tag your story Moral Mondays so we can find you in the WordPress Reader! You can even use the badge to make your post more visible.
Come join the fun!
