Hello! *waves*

I’m Pippin and I’m a writer based in Dorset, south-west England.

I’m not exactly new to blogging – my craft/vintage blog Pippin Run Wild has been going since October 2012 – but this blog is, so a post to introduce it seemed like a good place to start.

I’ve been writing stories – big, small, made up, and real – ever since I was little. And I’ve loved reading them ever since I can remember too. The latter most probably inspired the former.

I particularly love fairy & folk tales, myths & legends, and ghost stories.

But reading is reading, so you’re also pretty likely to find me reading a food packet from front to back (resolutely ignoring the calorie section), or a newspaper, or a magazine, or an instruction manual (as long as it’s not for something that I’m actually needing instruction on), or… well, just about anything with words really.

This blog is for sharing the things that capture and sometimes come from my imagination (which are things more likely to be of the fairytale/myth/ghost story variety as opposed to the food packet/newspaper/instruction manual kind), and stories from my everyday life too.

My hope is that these things, or at least one or two of them, might capture your imagination too…

  1. Good luck with your new blog. You can read stories or get inspiration on #FolkloreThursday on Twitter – it’s full of myth, legend, folktales, fairy tales and a couple of links to blogs and short stories for your enjoyment. 🙂


  2. Good luck with the blog, I’ve liked what I’ve read so far. If you like fairy tales can I suggest The Turnip Princess and Other Newly Discovered Fairy Tales. They’re stories collected by Franz Xaver Von Schonwerth about the same time as the Grimm brothers were collecting their stories. In this case, they sat in a library for a couple of hundred years before being rediscovered.
