This week’s blog prompt is a follow up to last week. Since you wrote about the discovery of how you found out you were a demi-god, the following information will be important to you as you learn about your new role. You will need to use all the information you know about the beast you are creating in art to answer this prompt.
What would you do if you woke up one morning and found a satyr on your front porch, and he explained that he was going to take you to a special camp for people like you: half-god, half-human to learn how to deal with your new-found responsibilities? You would probably think this is some kind of joke; but if you are familiar with Percy Jackson, you would know the number one rule: Heroes must always stay on their toes and be on the lookout for monsters.
Every young hero will encounter monsters. That’s a given. But will you see them before they see you?
Please create a short survival guide for young demi-gods, like yourself, chock full of tips that will help them should they have a close encounter with your beast. Base these tips and tricks on what you know about your beast’s appearance, traits, abilities, or anything else. Include the following:
1. What are the warning signs that your monster is near?
2. How can one avoid your monster?
3. What are important strategies should someone have to fight his/her way out of an encounter?
Study up, demi-gods……..you never know when you may come face-to-face with Medusa or when your English teacher will start to grow claws……..
( Idea from Demi Gods and Monsters, Benbella Books)
Warning: Please do not write the ridiculous, the offensive, the silly, or the graphic paragraph (in terms of blood and guts), as that is not what I am after or the purpose of this post. You are to take the information you learned about your beast and create a short survival guide for other demi-gods should they chance to meet it.
