Cry of the Banshee

In Scotland the Banshees are often the spirits of women who have died in childbirth, obliged to perform their ritual of warning others of their impending demise until the day when they themselves should have died.

Highland legends tell us that any man bold enough to creep up behind the Banshee and grab her breast will be granted a wish. It’s not known if any man has succeeded.

The OC says that if looking, a writer gets ideas from everywhere.

Right now my writing floodgates are opened and this little morsel could easily to overwhelm me with stories of bravery, fear and horror, pain and loss. The pot is stocked, set on a fire and being stirred. Lets see if something congeals within it.

Something definitely taken form. I just don't know when I'll get around to posting it.
