Prompt 10 The Metamorphosis


This week’s theme is metamorphosis and not in the spiritual or philosophical sense but in the physical sense! I am not sure how many of you have read Franz Kafka’s “The Metamorphosis” but the protagonist in the story wakes up as a monstrosity unspecified. What you wake up as is up to you, you can wake up in a another human body, as an animal, a demon/angel, an insect, rodent, a reptile/amphibian, a mythological creature whatever you like just so it isn’t as yourself (unless you want to do something with amnesia)! Mr. Kafka never explains why this fate has befallen his protagonist and he never really explains precisely what sort of monstrosity the poor guy has turned into so I leave it to you if you want to explore that or leave that aspect a mystery. I also leave it up to you, if your character is seen by an outsider or if the transformation occurs when they are alone. I want the change to be unexpected and non volitional. Obviously you can do a vampire/werewolf/or zombie theme. You could also have your character die and become a ghost. You don’t have to write a story for this but do try to be descriptive.


Pictures are allowed for this prompt as always

If you are doing a haiku or limerick choose some type of vermin (mice, bugs, snakes) for a more general theme

If you are doing a Blog write about gardening or nature or an experience with vermin haha
