Why I Love #FolkloreThursday
Every Thursday the TwitterVerse explodes with gems like this one from Adam Pigeon:
The ghost ship the Flying Dutchman is meant to be a portent of misfortune. The future King George V claimed he saw it off the coast of Australia in 1881 137 years later public interest in his great-great-great-grandson's wedding is relatively low. Coincidence? #FolkloreThursday
For those of us who write on the borders of myth, magical realism and fairytales it's like walking into an orchard of ripe fruit ready for picking. Need story ideas? Follow the hashtag and fill your basket. Another benefit? You'll meet other wanderers from your tribe.
