For Writers: Myths Renewed

Greek Mythology

Today’s writer topic comes from QSFer Therese Woodson:

I’d also like to talk about using myths as a basis for stories. Do people just use Greek/Roman myths? Or how about myths from other cultures?

It’s a great topic. Many of our authors have used mythology as a basis for their tales – BA Brock in his “King of the Storm” book drew heavily on Greek mythology, and Angel Martinez’s “Vassily the Beautiful” reimagined a Russian fairy tale.

So have you played with myths or fairy tales in your own writing? Are there any mythologies you are dying to explore? And what do we have to be careful of when we use someone else’s cultural history as fodder for our own stories?
