Retelling Myths - A Flash Fiction Series


A monthly flash fiction series that I started on Twitter.

All throughout the ages, stories have been told and retold, over and over again.
So that's what I want to try my hand at with this little series - retelling stories.

These are just for fun, and are not meant to be entirely "lore accurate".
Not all of these will be strict retellings, and not all of them will deal with mythology
And, yeah, most of these can be called fanfiction, but I would like to say that I'm... Retelling Myths.
