It is really hard to do course assignments when the writing bug has hit…
That is in no way to say that I have done any actual writing today, but I’m in the mood and inspired and its all my brain can think about. I have been doing some more research on Druids for Unvamped 2* – starting with the very important Druids: A Very Short Introduction by Barry Cunliffe – and am more convinced than ever that there is no real historical basis for the kinds of druids I thought there were (based on Merlin/Arthurian mythology) or that I need for my story. My only dilemma now is that I’m not sure whether I should concoct a bastardised version of Druidry that sits similar to what I believed Druids to be, or to come up with a “new” branch of magic. I feel that maybe a bastardised version of Druidry might be the best way to go, but I don’t want it to seem to unrealistic if there are readers who know more about Druids than I can teach myself. I just have to hope that I can weave a story exciting and in-depth enough that my readers can suspend their disbelief long enough to get through it! 🙂
I have been busy plotting as well, and that is going well. Although, as the plot arc table nears completion, it gets scarier because then I have no excuses not to keep writing the story. But, we shall come to that hurdle when we come to it.
I have also been looking further into buying the font from the Unvamped cover, and have found a couple of places from which to buy it, but will need the tech-savvy husband or brother-in-law to check I’m not buying from somewhere dodgy. On the plus-side, only have to buy one because I found the other one on a free font site 🙂
While I’m on a roll, I should get back to plotting – plus need to leave for dinner at the in-laws soon!
