Ask Me About My Chicken Feet #TBT

Ask me about my chicken feet is not the invitation one normally sees on a shirt or bumper sticker. I had to order the button custom-made.

Ask Me About My Chicken Feet

chicken feetYes, they’ll make just about anything for ya at a spec fic convention.

I’ve had people ask me, when I’m wearing it, if it’s a reference to vodun, but it isn’t. It’s partly about my approach/avoidance attitude toward chicken feet as food (I want to try it, but I dare not).

Mostly, though, it’s about Baba Yaga. I grew up reading Baba Yaga stories in Hightlights Magazine. I love Baba Yaga stories. I may write one myself, some day.

Meanwhile, I’ll content myself with my pin. Hold the chicken feet.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: Write a story with a formidable witch in it.

I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.
