“Sunflower Week” ends with a challenge. After reading The Sunflower Myth blog post, Ralshella, one of my former students, challenged me to rewrite the story.
Of course, I can’t let Shelibelle off the hook, so I’m challenging her to pick up her pen and rewrite the story.
And I’m challenging you, my blog friends, to rewrite the story too.
Create a myth that explains the origin of the sunflower. You can revise or work against the Ancient Greek myth of Clytie related in the Sunflower Myth post. Or you can create an entirely new myth.
Since this is a creative work, you are pretty much free to express as you wish. There are three rules:
- Refrain from using profanity or sexually suggestive themes (My kiddo often reads my blog posts).
- Avoid the woman victim-villain-abused characterizations we typically find in such stories.
- Present your own original work.
I will post my own sunflower story next week. If you have a blog, come back here a week from today and post a link to your myth in the comments of that post. If you don’t have a blog, but would still like to participate, post your story in the comments. 🌻🌻🌻
I’m looking forward to your stories!
