I only have 104 pages left to read in my last book for the semester! I do still have a few articles to read, an exam to study for, five papers to write, and one to edit… but all of that will go by fairly quickly. I also get to take Alayna to see the new Avengers movie next weekend, which is exciting for me. So, all in all, it’s looking to be a pretty good week! That being said, you never know what could happen… 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.
