Well, it’s Wednesday yet again, and it’s almost Halloween. I have to admit that the years kind of gotten away from me and I haven’t actually done or prepared anything to celebrate my favorite holiday. Now, admittedly, I’m not much for celebrating holidays in the first place, but I do try to do a little something special every Halloween, even if it’s just wearing a real sword out in public. I’m going to have to figure out what to do this year because currently I have no ideas. Anyway, if you don’t already know the rules: I give you a prompt and you write a scene off of it. Try to keep your scene under five hundred words, and try to keep it in the same tone as the introduction. If I give a line that is very dark and depressing, then I don’t want to see a scene about a drunken monkey in a tutu…it just doesn’t fit. If I do give you a line about a drunken monkey in a tutu, then you should probably try for a funny scene.
Your prompt: “The prophecy as wrong…”
There is a good way to do prophecy in fantasy fiction. Unfortunately there are also a wide variety of very. very bad ways. I’m listening to one of those right now and it’s actually making my teeth grate a little bit. So, I want you to write something about prophecy, but about a prophecy that went awry.
