Tales took a fairy tale as it's central theme and the contributors were asked to use the story as a jumping off point and then given free reign to what they wanted. After my unsuccessful first submission I was given another opportunity to get published.
This was for the launch edition of the magazine which focused on the fairytale of Repunzel. I thought a lot about how I could twist the story and settled on the idea of the Prince stalking Repunzel and then went from there. I created a character than wore a pair of pants on his head which acted as his conscience while he tried, unsuccessfully to woo the love of his life.
