Celtic Myths | The Story of Aonghus Óg…and Love

Aonghus, the Celtic god of love, is eternally youthful. His true name is Aonghus Óg, which means young Aonghus. Dun Aonghus, the sacred site on Inis Mór Island, the larger of the Aran Islands, is his summer residence. From this fort Aonghus Óg can reach the land of eternal youth, Tir na Óg.Myth4 Copyright©IreneGraham 2015 office@thecreativewritersworkshop

One night Aonghus fell in love, in a dream – when he saw Caer. He searched for her for years and years. Each year she changed shape. A shape shifter – from swan to beautiful woman, to swan, to beautiful woman. Aonghus’s searches lead him to find her among one hundred and fifty swans. His love was so deep he turned into a swan himself so he could be with her. Together they became the protectors of loving couples.

Aonghus Óg has four bright birds representing his four kisses, so if four birds encircle your head and sing when you are walking the winding hill to this ancient site, it could just mean you are charmed and that love springs into your heart.

Walking the ancient sites of Inis Mór learning myths and legends is part of The Creative Writer’s Workshop Novel and Memoir Writing Retreats on this mythical island.

Creative Writing | Finding Your Writing Voice

Finding one’s Writing Voice is, I feel, a key element in writing.

Previous writing influences often inhibit the creative voice. It is as if the brain becomes familiar with one mode of thought and the writer often finds the leap into the realm of creative language difficult.  Dawn Copyright©IreneGraham 2014 office@thecreativewritersworkshop

Influences such as Journal Writing, Applied Writing and Corporate Writing demand a different set of rules and thought patterns. The creative writer needs to break free of those restraints to write creatively.

Like all art forms, practice definately helps. Being aware of creative language, what it is and how it can be used in story is the foundation to writing creatively,  but in my workshop experiences, it is when a writer finds what they want to write about – when they engage with their story – that is when they connect to their writing voice on a deep level.

If this is the case, then it is important to not only understand the language within creative writing, but to focus and develop the story you want to write. This will help enhance your unique expression, your choice of words and will set the stage for the nuances of the world you are writing about.

Through engaging with the creative writing process and understanding the fundamentals of creating story, other writing influences will find their place, allowing your unique writing voice to emerge – for your story.
