How do cyclopean and elven writing prompts and suggested body modifications for characters sound to you?
I found the perfect prompts for a Lovecraftian or regular horror stories, epics and subversive works.
What self–respecting Viking can resist raiding new lands? Jormungandr the Midgard Serpent, son of Loki the Trickster, and the jotun Ymirling, won’t pass up the chance to ravage, Turtle Island, a land unprotected by Thor the Thunderer! (Approximately 4334 words.)
I’ve been wanting to do a “Jormungandr goes Native” themed series. I couldn’t think of how to turn it into a novel, but it’ll be easy to create short story of incidents of his life on Turtle Island, my people’s name for North America. This contains the first part of the series. The length of the series will depend on reader demand, but there’re some highlights of his life I want to cover so there will be a series either way.
I saw Terry Pratchet like comedic potential in two new discoveries and one for an epic.
This weeks prompts are the discover of a lost civilization and a crossgenre murder mystery/dark fantasy.
I’m turning this week’s trends into writing prompts for myself and any readers this blog may have.
The last member of Roland’s companions is gathered and now they move on to the quest. The collection of the companions seemed like a sideline but he makes more progress with them then he did by himself. Roland grows by learning the value of teamwork, and the action picks up at the conclusion. Only King could get away with spending so long gathering the members of the quest. Very few people could pull it off.
I’ll still be offering the results of my weekly trend spotting.
However, I’m shifting my weekly blogposts to fantasy plot prompts
instead of curating the best picks.
April Fool’s Day proved to be a folkloric tradition still respected in a high-tech world, a Long-Lost Roman
city was found and there is an upcoming book release with a theme of Asian postnatal cuisine.
I discovered the Nosh Berlin festival this week.
