An Epic Challenge
I’m reaching back into Ancient Ficlets History yet again for this challenge.
Most of the time tales are told through prose, but sometimes it’s good to mix it up a bit. Simply put, Your Challenge is to tell a story through poetry, like an epic poem. I’m not looking for a tale to last the centuries comparable to Homer’s Oddesey or anything. I’m looking for a good story told through verse as opposed to prose. Some kind of structure is appreciated (limerick, sonnet, some kind of rhyme scheme), but I will accept free verse, as well as multiple ficlys. My only stipulation is that, again, there must be a plot of some kind.
In need of examples? Look no further than here: http://ficlets.ficly.com/stories/35106
The challenge and the year will end together. Sound good? Then go forth and be epic!
