I would like to introduce you to my new favorite website:
That's right. It's a comprehensive online encyclopedia of mythology that is apparently free and reliable! (<--Most articles appear to have *references*. Everyone say, "Oooh, ahhhh.") I can just search Penthesilia or Sir Percival or whatever mythical figure I want and boom--concise summations of their stories at my fingertips!
Some articles even have pictures! For instance, here's Dido being all weird and clingy as usual.
SO COOL, RIGHT? (Yes, I get excited about these things. This is why I'm considering a classical studies major.)
And even though my current WiP is in no way a mythology spinoff (except in the ways that all stories are mythology spinoffs...), mythology definitely influences my storytelling--both consciously and subconsciously, I'm sure.
Why haven't found this website before??!?!! DAY MADE.
Aaaaaand Tyler-Rose is apparently reading a very good book, because when I checked to make sure I should post this today, her response was (intense whisper): "Don't speak to me!"
It's The Rose Garden by Susanna Kearsley. All I know about it is that it includes handsome ghosts.
