I just learned of two calls for “dragon stories”. One asks for feisty heroine+dragon and the other wants princess+dragon.
So I’m thinking of favorite dragon tales: Kenneth Grahame’s The Reluctant Dragon (1898), E Nesbit’s The Book of Dragons (1900), and Ruth Stiles Gannett’s My Father’s Dragon trilogy (1948-1951), with Elmer and the Dragon and The Dragons of Blueland. [Truly committed dragon-tale readers can work their way through this list at Wikipedia.]
There are dragons in Kenning Magic — clans, a dragon court, even a dragon funeral. I don’t necessarily want to specialize in dragons, but it’s hard to resist writing about them. And now I have another opportunity to see what I can do with volatile characters. You can’t beat fire-breathing winged beasts for upping the ante in a story.
