So it begins! I’m experimenting with third person voices this year, using “rained out picnic” as a prompt.
In those days, men were corrupt, and rejoiced in their wickedness and reveled in violence. And as they were carousing in the field, there was a loud noise, and the sky grew dark. They were frightened, for they had never heard or seen such things. But some said that the gods were angry, and they began to search among them for a sacrifice. They seized a woman. But she took her knife and thrust it into the side of one of those who was trying to bind her. And the skies opened and water poured down.
What type of story does this feel like to you? When does it take place? Tell me in the comments!
