A Novel? Short stories? Essays?
I had an idea for a “novel of Blake and Yeats,” because those two poets--separated by a century of time, but united by mutual interest in the things of the unseen world--if put together in the 21st century, mutual friends of a female religious studies scholar, might ignite a most interesting conflict in her family, in the school where she works, and in the scholarly community. Sue Booth-Forbes, director of the beautiful Anam Cara retreat in Ireland, pushed me toward a coherent narrative, and Deb Meghnagi Bailey helped further. But then the drafting stalled.
This isn't too unusual.
Other ideas are gestating. See my blog here for progress reports.
