30 DoA #27: Worst Misconception

27. Worst misconception about this deity that you have encountered.  I’m not so sure if this is a misconception specific to Wayland, but in general amongst Heathens/Asatru, there seems to be this “flavor” to the gods, that they are all loud-boasting, hard-drinking, frat boys. Not so much for Wayland, at least in my experience. He’s […]

Anyway, this topic can be summed up by the following picture: Wayland has helped me A LOT, not only in my creative […]

30 DoA #23: Original Composition

23. Your own composition – a piece of writing about or for this deity.  This is a piece I wrote back in 2008, when I was having a lot of fun exploring traditional Anglo-Saxon poetry forms. Apologies in advance for any obscure kennings.   The Smith’s Secret Lame Lord’s toil drives home Longing for feathers’ song […]
