MicroNaNo: Darn you Muses…

  • Post category:Writing

I took a nap, as whilst napping it was discovered that the story of the dryad and the turtle is actually a picture book. I know that because I was reading it to the classroom of kids trying to distract them (while the cats fought to keep the battle between the ghosts of the first floor of the old mansion and the ghosts of the second floor from spilling over into the gym.) It was illustrated with stylized cut-paper and the kids were rather amused at the repeating line “And the tortoise said ‘No.'” which happened about once every other page. (Did I mention the ghost war and the fact I was having to teach one of the cat’s defensive magic because the older cat had led the one party to defend the north stairwell and had left me with the Probie cat to help defend the kids… *headdesk*)

But yeah, now stuck with the picture book firmly in my head, the Muses are refusing to let me get it down any other way… *sighs*
