PROMPT Myth-take Challenge #34

Discussion in 'INSPIRING MUSES' started by Lstorm, Aug 18, 2013.

  1. 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: Loka


    In Hindu Mythology, Loka is a concept that can be translated to mean region or world, but not just in a physical sense. Rather, a Loka is both a physical and a mental location, a spiritual plane as well, an idea. In Hindu Mythology, there are fourteen of these "worlds", seven belonging to the 'Higher Worlds' and the other seven belonging to the 'Lower Worlds'. Earth was considered to be the lowest of the 'Higher Worlds.

    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.
