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: Gáe Bulg Gáe Bulg is a legendary spear that was used by a warrior called Cúchulainn in Irish Mythology. It was a weapon made out of the corpse of a sea monster, and according to the myths, it was an absolutely deadly spear that always killed the one it targeted. While there are several alternate descriptions of the lance, it is clear that once the lance was thrown, the enemy was dead, and it would take a long and gruesome process to remove the spear from the body. 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.
