Is Fable Writing a Dead Art? Empty

I am working on a story about Diane's parrot, Sport and his visit to the Woods because Diane has to go to Istanbul. I am at a point in the story that Sport has to relate to Cho Lee Yen the old, old fable about why parrots have no Call of their own like other birds do and are reduced to using other bird's calling.

Any one have any experience of fable writing?

Any ideas?
Love,
Betty

I have never written a fable, but love reading them.

That parrot's call makes me think of the Power of Naming from one of Madeline L'Engle's books. Not having a call would be like not having a voice - at least of one's own, like Carol Gilligan's book on powerful women (In Her Own Voice)

And there is Echo, from Greek mythology. Wasn't she in love with Narcissus? I don't remember her story. Who knows how she lost her "voice"?

Maybe one of those thoughts will strike a chord somewhere.

If a thing's worth saying, it's worth saying twice.
