Once upon a time, I was a writer. An illness which proved to be chronic and debilitating took that away but I could still create – just in bits and pieces rather than entire books. When blogs became popular, I found a medium – now what I needed was inspiration.
I have been very impressed with the Elder Scrolls series as a whole due to the wide scope of creativity – I have played past games and become so embroiled in side-quests and twists in the story that I never even gave the main quest a look in. Even the books ingame are a wealth of creative, bite-sized myth, a treasure trove to explore if you’ve the time to do so.
Skyrim captured my imagination and my creativity, as it has done with all of you I expect. I’ve merely managed to shape a story around a story which already exists – a creative exercise to stay within boundaries, and yet to allow a unique voice to come forth. Hence, this blog, and hence the story.
