A Quick Irish Read for St. Patrick’s Day

A sweet and sexy vignette from Staci Troilo!

Staci Troilo

Ciao, amici!

I know… seeing an Italian greeting on an Irish post is just weird, right? Couldn’t help myself. That’s how I always greet my friends.

Today, I should have said: Dia dhaoibh ar maidin. (It’s pronounced like this: JEE-uh DEE-iv air MA-jin and means “good morning.”)

Heck with it. Here’s a greeting that works for any of us:

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

I know I focus a lot on my Italian heritage, but I’m also part Irish. A fact I should celebrate more and never fail to celebrate on March 17.

Because of that, a few years ago, I decided to write a series of vignettes honoring (some of) my dad’s roots. I ended up with twelve, one for each month. That series was edited into Laci and Del: 12 Months, 12 Chances.

There are a number of very good reasons to participate in writing challenges. It hones your skills, it showcases your writing, and it forges connections with other writers here in blogland.

One of the challenges that I am enjoying is from Diana Wallace Peach and here is The March speculative fiction prompt

A moment of alignment

The child walked the darkened streets unafraid of the shadows. With bare feet, she disregarded the grit and gravel underfoot, and skimmed across the surface of the odd puddle or two in her path. Her shoulders were back, and her head held high, with arms swinging confidently by her side. A faint smile touched her lips as the ring around the moon glowed brighter.
