My husband suggested this challenge and he even wrote his own response to it. So you’ll be reading his and mine.
Excalibur, the famed sword wielded by King Arthur is a legend of its own. King Arthur’s castle has yet to be found, but relics dating back to the 5th century have been uncovered and I truly believe Camelot, King Arthur, Merlin and Excalibur did in fact exist.
One of the most famous legends passed down from generation to generation talk about Arthur pulling it from a stone. The other has it that the Lady of the Lake gave it to him. In any event, it must have been a mighty sword, but who forged it? When and why was it forged? What happened to it after King Arthur returned it to the Lady of the Lake?
Your challenge is to answer the three questions above.
Your response can be in any form you wish. Poetry might be quit fitting here. Just be sure it’s about who, when and why Excalibur was forged and what happened to it after King Arthur gave it back to the Lady of the Lake.
Suggestions: As always, please send me challenges you’d like to see.
Keep in mind, this is a monitored group and there are only a couple of rules, which are:
Make sure you put this (WWE, 6/27/12, Excalibur) in your title.
Be sure to tag it with WWE, Gather Writing Essentials, Excalibur. Post to Gather Writing Essential.
I ask that you make your submission(s) by next Tuesday afternoon.
There is a limit of three submissions from each member per day. If you’re extremely prolific, spread out your work and post only three submissions per day.
Put this challenge statement at the beginning or end of your submission so readers will know what you’re supposed to do and won’t think you’re crazy.
Write in any form you desire about who, when and why Excalibur was forged and what happened to it after King Arthur gave it back to the Lady of the Lake.
