January is Viking Month

2011 was a good year for the Vikings. In pop-culture itself, they found themselves featured in the video game Skyrim and the movie Thor. I’ve also noticed an influx of Viking books and music over the last few years. Perhaps that is why I am writing this now. Historically, three discoveries were unearthed and four revelations came to light from studying former discoveries, these and their importance are what I’ll be focusing on during my month long blog dedication.

With each new discovery and revelation, we understand the Vikings a little better. In 2011 alone, we’ve learned much more about their presence in the lands they so ruthlessly, or maybe desperately invaded.

Hopefully by the end of January as we learn what the dirt reveals to us about the oft misunderstood Norse-Cultural-offshoot that are the Vikings, you’ll also have learned something new about these magnificent warriors.

Back Again updates and news

Been really busy with a new job lately.

But I'm proud to say I've finished the 10th book of the year. That is the number of books I read last year. So, this year will be better!

Also note that I'm starting a couple new hashtag series on twitter. #

In #notmyline I'll share the worst lines I’ve found in published fiction. Some never consider how their words sound out of context, and I'll show them!

In #wishIwrotethat I'll share the best lines from published fiction that I've found. It is likely that these will come from authors I worship.

Scribings is now available!
