I’ve been working on the ‘doorways’ story for the Cauldron Blog Project a little bit each day. Both the biggest aid and bane in writing the story as been Hozier’s ‘Take Me to Church’. When writing a spirit story, I inevitably need a song or album to listen to endlessly. The stories always feel more in-tune with the spirits that way. But they can hold me back, become distraction or influence a story to be more fluid than it should. It’s an awkward balancing act.
This Wednesday I will be posting up a new entry for the Hawthorne & Heather column, on a specific spirit I met earlier this month.
On another blog I’m going to be writing on The Pagan Experience prompts. If you’re interested in blog prompts and missing the old Pagan Blog Project, give the new one a look.
I have a few links to bring you today, most of them Otherfaith related. Enjoy!
If you didn’t see it earlier, Sage posted their introduction post last Friday. Please give them a warm welcome! They will be posting every, or every other, Friday, depending on their schedule.
Jenn, on her blog, wrote another reflection on a spirit, this time on Mallory. She also posted on preparing to honor spirits and the holy days. Like Jenn, I look forward to where the Otherfaith will go this year!
Burning Heart Press has a call for submissions for queer and trans perspectives on Paganism and polytheism. You never know if your piece will be accepted so submit! It’s worth the risk and the bravery. Your voice deserves to be heard, after all.
That’s all for this Monday. See you next week!
