Now that I have introduced the Writer’s Hydra, it’s time to ‘Create a Scene’. So, here are the rules – Every Tuesday, I’ll list the three heads (character, action, and setting). With these items, you create a short scene. Please keep it PG. Once you have completed your scene, post it in the ‘comment’ section below. That’s it! Oh, and have fun!
My entry: A teenage boy sailed his family’s small fishing boat out into the Mediterranean Sea. He cut the engine upon the deep, clear waters, casting his net. He started to drag in his catch. There was a slight tug on the rope. The boy pulled harder. Fish after fish flopped onto the deck. When the last bit of net inched towards the boat, two arms wrapped around his neck. A daughter of Poseidon pressed her lips to his.
The tides rose and the sky rumbled. A figure surfaced, towering above the couple. Poseidon glared as his daughter kissed the mortal boy. He placed his triton’s barbs into the sea and stirred the waters. A whirlpool stretched, engulfing the fishing boat.
The boy panicked as the boat spun in circles at the lip of the whirlpool. The girl clung to him until the sea finally swallowed her into the depths. Satisfied, Poseidon raised his triton and dove back into his kingdom. The massive wave sent the boy and his boat off towards Grecian shores.
Now, it’s your turn. Let your imagination run wild! And spread the word!
