This year my theme is A Goddess' Glossary and we are looking at terms utilized by Goddesses, Priestesses, Shamans and Witches. These are terms that might occur in my new fantasy series, Paisley Cove.
B is for Bard
In medieval Gaelic and British culture, a bard was a professional story teller, verse-maker and music composer, employed by a patron (such as a monarch or noble), to commemorate one or more of the patron's ancestors and to praise the patron's own activities.
William Shakespeare is known as the Bard of Avon and William Wordsworth is known as the Bard of Rydal Mount.
In the new novel, coming soon, The Charm Of Paisley Cove, our main character Phoebe, escapes her mundane life to spend three months at an East coast writer's retreat called, Paisley Cove. Phoebe's hope is to unearth the best-selling author she thinks was buried within her at the age of sixteen, following the death of her father.
Come back tomorrow for C is for Charm.
