Good Writers Borrow, Great Writers Steal (T.S. Eliot) Revisited

by

Carmen Ferreiro-Esteban


A year ago I blogged about my idea of writing a paranormal story with “a wise older woman as the protagonist. Something like Buffy, the Vampire Slayer with the mother as the slayer,” as I put it then. (https://onpublishing.wordpress.com/2010/03/05/good-writers-borrow-great-writers-steal-t-s-eliot/)

Since then the paranormal genre has continued to explode, both in book format and in movies/TV shows. But, to my knowledge, no one has yet created my character, a strong middle-aged single mother of two teens who is also a writer.

And so, finally a year almost to the date since my previous blog on the subject, I have written it myself. In the tradition of Dickens and Conan Doyle, I plan to publish my story in weekly installments at my blogs: http://carmenferreiroesteban.wordpress.com/ and http://www.notreadyforgrannypanties.com/search/label/Garlic%20for%20Breakfast.

Please join me there.
