Tale Weaver #66: May 19 2016: All that Glitters

Welcome to another tale weaver prompt.

This week, let’s explore: “All that glitters is not gold.”

The word/concept which I’m offering as point of inspiration?



Your approach?

As you wish, but consider the rich history, the myths, the associations, the metaphors that surround this gemstone.

How will you choose to tell a story? What facets will you cut? Will the tale be rough or polished. The weight? Metaphor? Allegory? Fable? Blissful? Bloody?

It’s up to you – so explore, think on it, and write well – enjoy and have fun.

Guidelines? Please use/include the word somewhere in your tale, either in singular or plural form, writing in whatever genre/style/form you wish.

You have a week to participate; when done, please create a link or a ping back to MLMM, and include your response in the official linking system. Please include the tags MindLoveMisery’s Menagerie, Taleweaver Prompt and Diamond in your posts.

About wildchild47

I like weeds and words. I walk hard edges and soft dreams. Dancing dragonflies and flickering fireflies are ecstatic. A heady, hoo-doo barometric pressure, mojo rising sweltering summer storm clears the air and the soul. I dip my wishes in dandelions and cache my writing demons in the bedroom closet. My North Node is in Aries, hence the fire in the belly, my Ascendant is in Sagittarius, more spirited fire, and my Sun Sign is Capricorn, hence the earthy, grounded seriousness. This all translates to chaos theory in motion and practice and more closeted hedonistic tendencies, coupled with healthy curiosity. And if I was a cannibal, I would wear a headdress and a pelvic bone necklace to a formal dinner. What about you?
