Today’s writing session was about trying to make good gumbo. I worked on some notes about antagonists and character conflicts, and I will probably do that tomorrow. I finished my book on Scandinavian folktales, and I referenced some Norwegian names.
By the way, Norwegian names!
My favorite note for tonight: BAD TROLL HAG WITCH!
I’m also floating the idea in my subconscious that mebbe Old Nick Scratch should be in the stories…because his legends are boss!
You say you want more folklore?
Let’s talk about
Magic Shot: Magic that is sent in the form of vapor or a swarm from far away to hit a target.
Finn Shot: The same, except sent by a Finn, whom everyone know is an eerie or suspicious outsider, and therefore suspect.
Elf Shot: The same, except sent by one of the invisibles (the name for the supernatural Scandinavian creatures.)
Next time, and I kid you not, the politics/folklore of milk!
