Inspire (5)

Inspire is a weekly prompt or writing exercise, posted on Mondays. Anyone who's interested can participate, and you're more than welcome to share what you've written by posting a link in the comments. 

This week's prompt is "Myth." You can interpret that any way you like; invent a myth. Reinvent a traditional story. Write a scene where something mythical is introduced to something modern or someone who never believed in it. Have myths from different cultures interacting. The possibilities are endless. 

Still not sure what to write? Take it a step further and think of fables, fairytales, or legends. Rewrite a well-known one. Create your own. What about theories such as Big Foot, the Loch Ness Monster, or the Abominable Snowman? Those are myths, too, in their own ways. There are so many different ways to interpret this prompt; play around with it, see what comes out, and above all, enjoy!
