Status Report!

I am currently writing chapter 7, an entirely new chapter that I had to insert between existing chapters, which will push me out to 10 chapters as it currently stands. Chapters 8 and 9 are already written, though not yet revised. 10 has been begun, but far from complete. Apart from revisions and editing, allContinue reading “Status Report!”

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?”

An Upcoming Scene

Ever since a dream I had, I’ve been planning a scene for my book, though it looks as though this particular scene will not take place until the second book. However, it is still relevant to me as the writer for the first book, as it will depict certain terrain which will also be visitedContinue reading “An Upcoming Scene”

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!”

Galdr vs. Seiðr

Galdr (pronounced: GALd-r) “Incantations”. The intoning and singing of rún sounds or chants, and the use of Rúnar in spiritual practice in general. In opposition to the Seiðr, this is the holy art of the Goðin. Seiðr (pronounced: SAYTH-r) “Sorcery”. The black art, founded by Gullveig. It is characterized by mind control, poisoning, conjuration, andContinue reading “Galdr vs. Seiðr”
