Ze Write Club Session Five (With Your Host, Cap'n Gimpy)
Greetings! Mother Earth says hello!
And The Oscar Goes To...
No one. Awards shows are rigged. HANS ZIMMER SHOULD WIN EVERY YEAR.
Anyway, this session I have the distinct pleasure of coming up with the prompt, and after clearing it with General @jordan.lesich, I will now present this image that has something to do with the story that inspired said prompt (or, to be more accurate, it identifies the author)...
That's right. H.P. Lovecraft has helped me 'craft' the prompt! Muwahahahaha!
Story: The Beast in the Cave
Prompt: The Lost Protagonist
Your main character must get lost in some way, whether that be emotionally, mentally, physically or otherwise, subtle or obvious.
I chose Lovecraft's "The Beast in the Cave" as the focal point because, well, for one, it's impressive that he wrote it at fourteen and got it published. Two, it's a great depiction of man vs environment (and more subliminally, man vs self). I'm a huge fan of Mr. Howard Phillips, and so it's only fitting he be integrated into Write Club somehow.
Good luck, Cadets, and may Cthulhu guide your way!
