Flash Fiction Challenge: To Behold The Divine

This week’s challenge:

Gods and goddesses.

Genre doesn’t matter, but I want you to write a story dealing with the divine. A deity! A demi-god! Whatever. Made-up or real, doesn’t matter. From the POV of the deity or from someone having to deal with said deity. Or maybe you wanna talk about a whole damn pantheon.

Entirely up to you.

Length: ~2000 words

Due Date: 3/24/17, that Friday, noon EST.

Write at your online space.

Go forth and confront the divine.
