Fenrir

Does anyone have much knowledge of Fenrir and the role he plays at Ragnarökr? How does he break free? I can’t remember, but I’m trying to work my way through the Edda to find out. I need to gather up information about Gullveig, aka Angrboða and the Járnviðr, as well as any connection she mightContinue reading “Fenrir”

The Lore and the Elder Kin— Fact or Fiction?

I read a blog post recently that got me thinking. Well, I’m always thinking, although admittedly, it is more nonsense than anything else. Still better to be thinking my own nonsense than let others do the thinking for me. Anyway, back to the point. The post I’m referring to is Hengist and Horsa and the Anglo-SaxonContinue reading “The Lore and the Elder Kin— Fact or Fiction?”

The End Is Nigh!

Our heroine, Dagmar, has just returned from her exploits with the Svartálfar, only to learn that they must ride to war, and take on a foe of monstrous proportions! Finally! After more than a year of work, book one is nearly at an end! The first battle in the war that will define the futureContinue reading “The End Is Nigh!”

Dilemma, Dilemma!

What to do? I am seriously considering adding a new thread to the tale, one which would involve all new characters, following their own subplot. These would be characters of Miðgarðr, so a big step out of the world of elves and dark elves. Now, there is definitely going to be a little breech betweenContinue reading “Dilemma, Dilemma!”

TheThe Úr Aldr…

…The Primal Age Prepare for info-overload! 😉 I’m working on an additional scene for chapter one, to provide some context and educate the reader in the lore, from which this story is inspired. Currently, the dialogue alone makes up one whole handwritten notebook page. I would like to condense this, if possible, without sacrificing tooContinue reading “TheThe Úr Aldr…”

It’s Gold!

It’s gold! It’s f*cking gold! I have the solution to my Ragnarok problem! Yes, I will have to kill off all my characters… But I have found the silver lining! And it’s perfect! Beautiful, wonderful! Or at least I think so…  It will make you cry, but it will also leave you with a smileContinue reading “It’s Gold!”

The Makings Of A Trilogy

When I embarked on this journey, I had thought only to write one book (for the project currently underway; I do have other ideas for stories I’d like to write in future). But as the tale progressed, I found myself going back and forth on whether to concentrate on writing just one or breaking itContinue reading “The Makings Of A Trilogy”

Bringing the Tale to Miðgarðr

As stated in my previous post, I have begun weaving a thread that will draw the mortal realm into the story. To do this, I have develop a concept that draws heavily upon some of the most fantastical conspiracy theories — one involving a shadowy ruling elite of supernatural beings. Now, I do not intendContinue reading “Bringing the Tale to Miðgarðr”
