Might I just say that trying to do work and school while sick is not the easiest thing in the world. Not easy, but worthwhile nonetheless. It’s been truly gorgeous whether here the past few days, so I’ve been doing most of my reading outside. I’m also curious to see the new Dracula movie that’s coming out, though I doubt I’ll have time to actually see it in theaters, but that’s why netflix was invented. Anyway, today is your story challenge. I want you to set this story in a world that your currently developing. One of the best ways to develop a world to write in, amazingly enough, is to write in that world. The more you write, the more your understanding of the world will solidify. The key here is to remember what you’ve written before and keep your world consistent (this is where world bibles come in handy). So, pick your nation and then write a story based off of these questions:
Your Challenge: Choose one major character in the history of this world and write a myth about him. This could be a great hero like Hercules, a god like Thor or Osano’wo, a monster like Jormungand, or an actual historical myth like Alexander the Great or Vlad Tepes. Regardless, the story should be written as a myth about the figure, not as a historical treatise. Make up a story that the people of your world tell around the fire, whether they believe it or not.
