#AtoZChallenge: Nymph

16 Apr

N

This is my first year participating in the A to Z Challenge. The list of participants can be found here. Thanks to Arlee Bird and the co-hosts for hosting this awesome challenge. Check out the site here.

I’m also participating in a mini-hop that got started on theme reveal day when a few of us realized we had similar themes. Β It’s called Supernatural A to Z. Click below to check out the list of participants. Β πŸ™‚

 

The creature of the day is the Nymph. What is a Nymph? The lore comes from both Greek and Latin mythology. Both of them depict the Nymph as a female nature spirit generally associated with a certain location or landform. They are usually regarded as divine spirits who can animate nature. There are many types of Nymphs. Some of the classifications are land, wood and plant, celestial, water, and underworld to name just a few. More information on the classifications of nymphs can be found here. The classification list is long. I was amazed at the different classifications.

      It’s a long one. I’ve got it bookmarked for ideas for later novels.

    I use nymphs a lot in my works as well. Always another one I didn’t know about hiding in some book somewhere!

      Yeah, it’s a pretty long list. I think there’s one for just about everything.

      It was a very good list even if it is a little long. I think they have a nymph for everything. Enjoy. πŸ™‚

    And to think about how the word nymph has transformed over the years…especially since their etymology and history is rooted as a divine spirit. Not such the case in modern day language.
