Happy Writing Prompt Day! Are you ready to be creative? I am! Sorry about there being no post for Newsy Friday. I was busy kicking 8-year-old butt at laser tag. Well, I came in 6th. The kid who got first place was a Packer fan, so I didn’t mind losing to him.
Today is writing prompt day. It is going to be mythology themed. I just finished reading Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters last night and I will be reviewing it tomorrow, so tune in!
The prompt is this: Choose a fairy tale, myth, or old story that you are familiar with. Now give it a modern day application. You know how every chick flick is some kind of remake of Cinderella? Even “10 Things I Hate About You” was a spin off of Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew. So choose your favorite bedtime story and find a way to modernize it. How would these characters act in real life? What jobs would they have? Are they going through a rough divorce that gets a little out of control? Get creative!
Remember, if you want to turn your story/poem/whatever into something a little more professional and you’re looking for a fresh pair of eyes, send your work to me! Check in my “About” section for my contact information.
