New Story! 1

 Wrote a story today!  It was inspired by this painting, which I saw yesterday at the Carnegie Museum of Art.  It’s called Midgard and it’s by Anselm Kiefer.  It’s a huge painting–it takes up most of the wall.  What I saw when I looked at it wasn’t the broken world that our tour guide mentioned, but a misshapen heart.  Combine that with the snake about to enter it and my weird parasite thing (if you’ve read Larva Mother, my story in January 2011’s Bards and Sages, you might understand what I mean) and I had the seed of an idea.  Now, it’s a rough draft.  

Bwahahaha!  I’m pretty pleased with myself today.
