I finished Ragús which in Irish means ‘urge, sensual desire, or a fit (binge)’. That means I finished the edits to the final manuscript. It will take several more rounds to carve out the superfluous, to reveal the dark sculpture beneath before it’s sent off for professional edits. This story is reflective of the archetype the Father. Carl Jung says: “There is no consciousness without discrimination of opposites”. This function is carried through the paternal principle, the Logos, the word, or reason, which “eternally struggles to extricate itself from the primal warmth and primal darkness of the maternal womb; in a word, from unconsciousness”. In this story, which mostly takes place in the Otherworld (our world) which signifies consciousness, there is a struggle between primal forces. Caught in between is a young woman who seeks her own self-knowledge. I hope you enjoy the tale, as I have. It’s the backstory for the embattled Fae who along with the witches, known as baobhs, have a long history that stretches back to ancient Greece. I’m hoping for a publishing date of May, but I’ll keep you posted.
Be well, stay strong.
