Wizard A brand new, myth-focused blog, Mythic Well, is up and running with a wonderful post on – what else? – Sacred Springs. There will be “articles about the myths and legends that inspire us” regularly posted by a group of writers who use myth, legend, folklore, etc. to inspire and season their writing.

So, as you can imagine, I’ll be one of the contributors. When a new post goes up on Mythic Well, I’ll link to it, so those of you who love to read about myths and legends as much as I do will have a quick way to see what’s new.

As for Sacred Springs by Jennifer Allis Provost, it’s a wonderful post filled with photos, facts, and magical information. Jennifer has also included links to some other interesting websites that offer even more information. Thanks, Jennifer, for a great debut article, and I challenge my fellow contributors to keep up the fascinating posts – I’ll sure try to do so.

So here’s the list of contributors – I urge you to check each of them and their writing out: Anthony Francis, April Wood, Darby Karchut, DC Farmer, Jennifer Allis Provost, Kimberly Long Ewing, TJ Woolridge, Sherry Ficklin, and me! 🙂

Beatrix Potter I’m back at Whimsical Words after a 2-month hiatus. And I’ll re-start blogging with a new Quotable Wednesday feature.

For me, and many other writers, these words hold true.

(As to where I got this photo and many more I’ll be using this year – I purchased a collection of author postcards many years ago. I used them as bookmarks! It was fascinating to look at the face of the writer as I read his or her work).
