You know that feeling where you're so happy that life seems surreal at a certain moment, and you can't seem to understand, or put your finger on exactly why you feel this way; that's what it was for me, the last time I jumped into the sea.

The last time I ran off the sun bleached dock. The last time I could stand, shoving my best friend Leif into the teal Caribbean Sea; without getting dehydrated and fainting.  

Now, my skin is cool and wet, if it should even be called skin. I have pale blue and silver scales embellishing my back, chest, hands and even on the sides of my face. My body has evolved and adjusted to underwater life; legs have been replaced with a fish-tail and fins. My fingers now have a thin layer of webbing between them.

I'll never be the same again, I've transformed into a creature of the sea; trapped, doomed to die in the deep, Never to feel the wind or the warmth of the sun, the arms of a loved one.

I am now a mermaid bound by the sea.
well just a little thingy thats been swimming around in my head for quite a while now...

Im still scattered about this Idea, I mean there is a storie bubbling up in my head; I just don't know If I have the time to write it.

They say, that good people who die at sea get reborn as merpeople.

And that merpeople (save the Sirens, who do the opposite) actually jump in to save sailors from death in the sea...from suffering the same fate as they did.

But those are just legends...or aren't they? :)

Are they legends? Are they?

thats why I like writing myth so much! the sense of mystery er' curiousity it gives the reader.

One of these times Im gonna write a whole short story...

Have fun doing that :)

And I came across it somewhere, so it's at least a legend...whether it's true or not, I cannot say of course.

And yeah, Myth is one of the most interesting fields to write in...however it's sometimes hard to find a legend, which hasn't been...well, written to death, basically.

For example the vampire's hard to start with any sort of vampire setting without getting some sort of 'sparkling comment' as a response.

Or the Norse mythology, with Odin and Yggdrasil...sometimes I have a hard time believing, just how popular these are...but I still use them :P

And the most fun: You can incorporate them into almost any genre.

Romance, Fantasy...even Sci-Fi. (Yup, I did that and it works :P). :D
