Translation: Freja Seeking her Husband
For example, I have a particular project coming up, a new one, that has to involve shapeshifters in some way. I really like projects with a common theme. This project is for a multi-author anthology. And we're all doing shifters. Therefore, I must make mine as different as humanly possible from any other shifter story in the collection. *grin*
I've bounced ideas around, from series I have already written to things I want to write about. Scarily, nothing was hitting. And considering I need to have this unplanned story in by August--that's not good.
But I think I struck gold. My many research books about myths and legends have once again come to my aid. I'm partial to the Norse, and I think I have just the thing. A beginning story to a new world set in multiple places and overseen by multiple deities. I'm excited just thinking about it. As a teaser, I can tell you that my first story centers around some of Freyja's people. Cats, falcons, and Valkyries, oh my.
Happy Monday. Now go grab some coffee.
