Myths and legends could be said to be the prototypes of modern novels. They are stories in their own right, tales that were passed on for generations. Even today, some elements from the old myths remain in our stories and occasionally, they serve as inspiration. This week’s mythical element is: Mjölnir Mjölnir is the hammer of Thor in Norse mythology, a fearsome weapon that could level mountains. Most often depicted as a hammer, Mjölnir is a masterpiece of a weapon that always strikes sure, and when thrown, it always returns to the hand of Thor. Yet the hammer's grip was unusually short because of Loki's interference with the forging, so Thor would have to use his iron gloves to wield it. Your challenge is to write a story that incorporates your own take on this mythical element. The genre and setting of the story does not matter as long as the element remains recognisable.
