My story is following the story arc for the hero's journey which is modeled after Homer's Odyssey. I would like to give nod to the original story in a couple of places. My giant snarling beast is going to be blind in one eye, so that's my cyclops but I would love to have something for the sirens or the fates. I know the sirens are what lures Homer and his buddies to the island. Any ideas on a modern day take on a siren especially with a female main character? I want her to have something that tempts her but is actually very dangerous to her if she falls for the temptation. Another thought I had was doing something with the Greek myth of the fates, the three old women who decide everyone's fate - one spins the thread, one measures the thread and one cuts the thread. I told my son I'd like to do something like a women's quilting or sewing circle of rich snobby women and he said he wasn't quite sure how it would fit into my story. (I am pretty sure the fates aren't in the Odyssey but if I can find a place for them I'd still like to use them because I love the idea of them.).
