During September, our theme for the Teitho Challenge will be Crossroads.
There are different angles from which you can tackle this theme. You
could interpret it in a realistic manner and write about characters
travelling or standing at a crossroads. Have you noticed how often and
repeatedly Tolkien's characters discuss which road to travel and which
path to take? And surely you are also aware of how it is impossible
for men to ask for directions? The stories those two facts could cause...
If you prefer, you can of course also use the metaphorical meaning
of Crossroads and write about turning points in a someone's life
- and there are as many as there are characters in Tolkien's world!
And for the more daring authors out there, this challenge is the
opportunity for writing "Supernatural" crossovers (or anything with
a supernatural twist), because naturally crossroads are also places
where ghosts may appear or supernatural events may take place. It's
a place between worlds... what an inspirational thought!
