Last week’s “I’ve Chosen Your Words” challenge was a tricky one, but some admirable tales came out of that one. You will go and check it out, won’t you? Good.
This week, I talked a bit about creativity and said that it was the fire we stole from the gods.
And I thought, “Hmm. Fire.”
Last week I gave you words, this week, I give you a title:
Your story will be titled: “The Fire of the Gods.”
And that’s it. That’s all I demand of you.
Well, besides the standard parameters, of course. The story must be under 1000 words. Post it at your blog (not in the comments here, or I may delete it), then link back so we can all see it.
You’ve got the traditional week. Get the stories in by Friday, March 23rd, noon EST.
Now write, won’t you?

My version of:
The Fire of the Gods
The novel I’m shopping has so much that would fit this bill. I’m a pyro and a mythology geek and wrote several versions of tricksters stealing fire. NOW you have this. LOL Alright, back to the smithy with me.
Missed last week’s challenge, so I figured what the hell, I’d use ten of those twenty words in a story called The Fire of the Gods.
I’ve missed the last two challenges because of deadlines and slow processing. Will try hard for this one.
This was like sweating-out in a sauna. *whew*
This was too much fun. My entry here: http://pushcomestoshove.blogspot.com/2012/03/fire-of-gods.html
This inspired a poem, actually, not a story. But since it’s based on a story, I’ll link back to it tomorrow.
I like fire!

Tougher than I thought being given a title.
Whoops, looks like a few fictions have flown off into the ether. I’ll add mine again.
I did submit this earlier today, but now it doesn’t seem to be here. Have I breached a guideline?
Anyway, my story is here: http://narratorium.com/?p=403 and it’s titled — wait for it — The Fire of the Gods.
Don’t know what’s happening here. I keep posting this and it keeps vanishing. 🙁

“The Fire of the Gods” is kind of an ominous name for an orbital weapons platform.
