St. Patrick’s Day
Amidst the shamrocks, “Kiss Me, I’m Irish” t-shirts and green beer, it’s often forgotten that St. Patrick was actually a historical figure. Since we publish fiction and non-fiction, I thought it would be interesting to post a link to some of St. Patrick’s own words.
As a writing prompt: there are very few novels about St. Patrick, although there are plenty of novels set in Ireland: modern, historical and historical fantasy. Try writing a story about St. Patrick, without snakes.
Personally, I celebrated St. Patrick’s Day with (not green) beer and potatoes, plus a few other things that aren’t totally culturally accurate. :)
