I have been toying with the idea of writing a book for a couple of years now. It didn’t make sense at the time to start, because I was currently entrenched in researching the Minoans on a more personal level. Any time I tried to start writing, some new information would come along and throw everything back up into the air (and usually me onto my ass).
That hasn’t been the case for around a year, now. And things have quieted down enough with spirit work, that it’s possible to take a breath and start putting pieces together at a more leisurely pace.
So I pushed through all my anxiety regarding writing, and started the outline for Reconstructing the Labyrinth, the book! It still needs a lot more work before I delve into writing, and I’m honestly not sure I’m going to see the project through. (I have every intention of doing so, but I’ve never successfully completed a full book). My hope, though, is to have it completed a year from now.
The current outline is broken down into three parts: Historical, Mythical, and Modern. Basically, the goal is to delve into what we do know, and how, about the Minoans and their culture from a historical standpoint. Because I get really irritated when pagan books don’t include sourcing, this section will be a bit more academic.
The second section will go into core deities and other entities, myths, and symbols/themes. It’ll still have sourcing for some stuff, but will also include a fair bit of UPG.
The last section is a little more personal. It will cover the importance of the Minoan religion and how it can be applied to modern life for pagans.
The reason I’m writing this here is twofold: One, accountability. Two, I wanted to open up a place for feedback here for anyone who reads this blog. Got a question you’d like to see covered in the book? Ask here! Got a particular topic you’d like more information on? Let me know!
Now, back to rounding up all my research links.
