Happy Easter! If you’ve been keeping up with Fie Eoin Fridays then you will probably recognize this sticky from Aleda’s Story #2. Aleda and her husband, Carrick, have just herded the Faye children out of Gaerlom to the relative safety of the mountains. But their ordeal is far from over, and Aleda has never been so far away from home.
I thought it was appropriate for today because Aleda is the Mother Goddess of the Seven Tribes. This Aleda is not named after the goddess – in fact, the goddess is named after her. I’ve always been intrigued by legends and myths, and it always seemed to me that some part of them were anchored in the truth. A truth that had been exaggerated and blown out of proportion over time. Aleda’s Story has been a fun way for me to explore how the legends and myths of the Seven Tribes (including Fie Eoin) might have some small basis in fact.
Have you explored the legends and myths of your WIP’s world? Could there be a hint of truth buried in there?
