EXERCISE Myth-take Challenge #41

Discussion in 'REFINING WRITING' started by Lstorm, Nov 4, 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: The Eternal Tables

    In Islamic Mythologies, the Eternal Tables is a white pearl that records every single event in history, even those that are about to come. Written on it is the past, present and future in exquisite, divine detail. According to certain interpretations, prophets recieve their visions from the Eternal Tables as relevations sent down to them by Allah. It is also believed that the Eternal Tablets are the original, heavenly version of the Quar'an, the holy book of Islam.
    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.
