Happy Sunday to all! 🙂 I was absent last week, but now I’m back with another snippet of a work in progress – a rewrite of the myth of Theseus and the Minotaur (novella-length, Young adult fantasy). This time we are in Theseus’ point of view. He’s talking with the satyr of the temple, who has a natural talent for sniffing trouble…
“You’re going with them, aren’t you?”
“Who?” The satyr pulled on his hair, and Theseus winced. “Ow, easy there, satyr.”
“I said, don’t lie to me. By some mischief or other, you’re going to change someone else’s lot for yours and go to fight Poseidon. That’s what I mean.”
Theseus said nothing, his heart thudding in his chest.
Check out more great excerpts on the six sentence sunday site.
Oh, a favourite story of mine from Greek mythology. 🙂 That sounds nice.
interesting snippet. Can’t wait to see what happens next!
Uh oh! Sounds like Theseus is busted.
Love this setting! Great snippet.
Enjoying this story.
Love mythology! Well done.
I skipped last week too, so glad I didn’t miss an excerpt from your story. Still love this concept.
So the satyr has a bit of ESP, it seems. He sees right through Theseus’s innocent act. Busted! LOL 🙂
Great six. I hope to read more.
Sounds like Theseus is in trouble. Nice six!
I love this myth. I can’t wait to see what you do with it. Good six!

Can’t wait to see more. You’ve chosen a great story to retell.
Love this concept! Can’t wait to see what happens next!

Great six and can’t wait to learn what happens next to him.
I love mythology. I think we all flirt with it in everything we write.
All my best,

Oh, a satyr who means business! Interesting six.
A character who’s a satyr is such an unique idea. I’m intrigued, wishing I could read more.
The great thing about this sort of thing is the humanizing of these archetypal figures. I love the insight into Theseus with this six.
I love the way this is going
Uh oh – busted!
Isn’t that eight sentences? Thank God you chose to be a writer and not a mathematician!
