Two days I sat down to write about a topic to find that either my browser or laptop would crash at every attempt to put the words down. So I picked up a pen and paper… to find that the pen was out of ink. While I was busy grabbing another pen, one of my lovely cats managed to shred the notebook. I am taking all of this as a sign that now is not the time for that particular post. Ironically, it was about the behavior of certain tricksters. Go figure.
Since that post does not wish to be written, I’m turning my thoughts elsewhere and pondering the idea of writing mythologies. I’ve touched on writing mythological tales in other places, including a novel that retold the story of Ragnarok from the prospective of a disenchanted Valkyrie. What I have in mind isn’t a re-imagining of existing stories, however, but telling of stories that I’ve created for my own amusement as I’ve wandered down this path.
Thematically, the stories fit well with this blog, but I think it would be distracting to post them within the main blog. My plan is to create a separate section on this site for those tales. This will allow me to keep the main blog focused on actual events, practices, paths, and people. I may sometimes give the backstory or further explanation of a myth here, but the stories themselves will have their own space. That’s the plan – if life and certain tricksters don’t interfere.
