What’s Celtic about Mermaids?

Tell the Truth Before I ever knew one thing about Celticness (Celtiocity?) I loved “The Undersea World of Jacques Cousteau.”  I’m sure down deep there was the sensitivity to bagpipes, but I’d never heard their call.  There was also a mermaid on “Marine Boy,” but really my major desire was to live and work on […]

Too Much Input

Not Enough Output My sister is planning to Nano in August.  I’m inspired.  I’m excited to see what she comes up with.  I’m challenged.  There is no way I’m going to do a couple thousand words a day, but I can start this new story with my daughter.  I’m calling it “The Widening Sea” and […]

I’m trying to help another author instead of doing my own writing. This may or may not be a diversion to keep me from having to do my own projects. I was deeply in love with my little tale, Tain: of Cattle and Love, a fantasy retelling of Romeo and Juliette for a little contest. […]

Feeling Restricted

I’ll admit that it has been a very long time since I posted anything. I feel stiffled. It is a great disincentive communication to realize that you exist in the beginnings of a police state.
