Ghost of a Rose
After spending most of the week flailing around trying to come up with an idea for my next short story, I just managed to write 2000 words in two hours. I had the idea on Wednesday at work, let it marinate yesterday and it’s been bubbling out this morning. What’s it about? The Forest, young love, old love, summer time, an enchanted valley. I wasn’t consciously thinking of the Blackmore’s Night song “Ghost of a Rose,” when I scribbled the outline at work, but it is surprisingly appropriate. Since E was the one who gave me that song years ago, this one will be for you, my fellow Philomythus.
