CropperCapture[152]Wanderings on the Internet

  • If you are so inclined, browse the Supernatural Haikus.

Writing Update

  • I wrote a short story about murderous lesbian swan-maidens this week titled, not particularly creatively, “The Swan-Maidens.” As part of the research for this story, I learned about Swedish river names and read this incredibly thorough and fascinating article about the folklore of Animal Brides by Terri Windling.
  • I also am planning to do NaNoWriMo for the first time ever this month, and I spent some time sketching out a rough plot for a possible novel about doppelgangers and political intrigue and alternate universes.
