I’ve added a page to house the re-told myths, so anyone wanting to read them doesn’t have to scroll through acres of me rambling. (The page is linked to above, where it says “Myths Retold” so check it out, and let me know if anything needs improving.) I also changed their category so they don’t show up in the “Greek Mythology” category page. I went with a page instead of a category for the narratives so that people can easily go to the one they want, without having to scroll through others, and so I can present them in order. At the moment, they’ve been written in chronological order–and that’ll continue with next week’s myth, too–but soon I’ll be moving backwards through time and telling stories that come before “Theseus and Pirithoos.”
I’m not sure which story to do at that time, though. Next week is “Admetos and Alcestis,” but what should I do after that? Should I dive into the life of Heracles so that I can get to the Twelve Tasks and thereby the final major myth involving Hades? Or should I do some of the other myths I had to allude to in this week’s myth? There’s the life of Meleager (which would include Atalanta and the Calydonian Boar hunt), the crime of Ixion, the earlier episodes of friendship involving Theseus and Pirithoos, and…uh…maybe that was all I mentioned in the story? I’ve already forgotten.
If anyone has any suggestions, let me know!
