This week’s prompt is: Myth Making
“The point of mythology or myth is to point to the horizon and to point back to ourselves: This is who we are; this is where we came from; and this is where we’re going. And a lot of Western society over the last hundred years – the last 50 years really – has lost that. We have become rather aimless and wandering.”
– J. Michael Straczynski
We all tell stories. This week, create a story that sums up the main lesson of your life. I know, there are so many lessons to choose from, so take some time and think about the one thing that you’ve learned which you would most like to pass on to future generations. There could be a lot of things that you want to pass on, but this has to be your life’s lesson, not somebody else’s. Now that you have your lesson, figure out a creative way of passing it on, whether it be a story, a poem, a song or a picture.
The article that you link to this prompt should be a new post written specifically for this assignment.
Dungeon Prompts can be a vehicle for us to open up the abandoned rooms inside ourselves and dust them off a bit. Take the prompt, explore the recesses of your mind, and get back with a poem, story, essay or creative offering. Link your post to this specific prompt page and I’ll share your link back with our readers.
To participate, all you’ll need to do is:
1. Tag your post with: “DungeonPrompts”
2. Link back to this page in the body of your post *
3. Dive deep within and give us a glimpse of your soul!**
*note: If the pingback doesn’t work, then please leave the link to your post in the comment section.
