Today I tried to tell a story from history, and wound up spending the whole time setting up the start of it. Hopefully tomorrow I can get it finished.
Today was planning out the next two Odd Side of Donegal installments. One is about four men who wrote a book, and the other is about a woman who helped her son. Looking forward to writing them quite a bit.
Today I wrote the next Odd Side of Donegal article, about a lake where fake monsters on the surface glide over the corpses of real monsters on the lake bed below. Pictures, polish and up it goes tomorrow.
Started my research with a Youtube clip of dubious cryptozoological significance, and finished it with an event in prehistoric Ireland where a lake fell on an elf. The next Odd Side of Donegal is planned out, and it’s going to be a strange one.
Wrote the second half of the Columcille article today. It includes the reason why all Irishmen get to go to heaven, and should be up tomorrow.
Today I wrote the first half of the next Odd Donegal entry. It’s actually pretty heavy going, not least because I’m relying on a poorly OCRed copy of an overly belaboured translation of a 16th century Irish book as my primary secondary source. (Don’t ask.) Hopefully I can get it finished tomorrow and get it up for Thursday.
Today I wrote up the Inishowen Whisky Wars and the Poitin Republic of Urris. Look for it in polished form tomorrow!
I also resized the images in some of the Odd Side of Donegal articles and switched the theme for the site. Hopefully it’s a bit easier to navigate now.
