I love polls, and here is an interesting question for you to ponder.
I have written Medusa’s Garden from a human point of view – there are the gods and goddesses, but Medusa is human. But this doesn’t quite sit right with me.
After some discussion with a couple of friends, I have come up with the following options:
1. Keep Medusa human (she can’t turn men to stone, only petrify them with her anger)
2. Make Medusa the magical mythical beast she has become (turn men to stone, snakes for hair)
3. Have Medusa have the ability to turn men’s hearts to stone (a combination of the two without the snakes for hair)
The poll will be up for three weeks, look forward to your thoughts.
