Sad news today for storytellers.
If you’re like me, the tales of Winnie the Pooh were an early inspiration to your reading, writing, and storytelling.
Ashdown Forest in East Sussex England, the inspiration for the Hundred Acre Wood in the Winnie the Pooh stories, was damaged by a forest fire on Sunday.
Thirty-five acres was burned before firefighters were able to stop the blaze. Also, no word on the status of Pooh and company, but let’s all hope no news is good news.
