I am already an author here on this blog, I’ve also written articles that have been published in the Pagan Dawn magazine in the past. I am currently musing on the idea of writing a book. I had tentative ideas of writing a book once before on urban druidry. That never came to pass and others have written books on forms of urban paganism since that time. If I go forward this time though it would be something on being a (mostly) Brythonic polytheist. Brython have plans to write and produce a primer that would cover various aspects of Brythonic polytheism. I don’t want to write something like that though and frankly I don’t think my scholarship is up to that type of book although I’d probably make a good draft reader for the project if they get that far. If I do write something, and I’m really not sure if I will, it is likely to be more personal and experiential.
I’ve been on my path as a pagan for a little over twenty years now. I started learning about druidry with the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids (OBOD) in March 1998. I have grown and developed in that time as you would expect and so has my path. In the last decade I have developed much more of a Brythonic polytheist practice. In that time I’ve gone through a number of personal changes as well that have affected all aspects of my life.
We are at a time when books about various polytheist paths are gradually increasing. Is it time for one on what it is to walk a mostly Brythonic polytheist path?
But why would I write this? For the gods or for my own sense of ego? Probably a bit of both but is the balance right? Would I do this more for the gods and to give others signposts for their journeys?
And would it be something others would want to read?
I think I could do this but should I? And if I did would it even get published, be read by others, be enjoyed?
More questions than answers. I’d welcome thoughts from readers of this blog about this.
