Prosing On

Prosing On

Cover for Kerry Greenwood's Phryne Fisher mystery, Murder on a Midsummer Night.

Last year, I plowed through the bulk of Kerry Greenwood’s Phryne Fisher mysteries. I devoured the twenty or so books in the series like I’d hit the Girl Scout cookie jackpot (which I have no doubt Phryne would approve of on several levels), only with none of the guilt or potential diabetes and a few bucks left in my pocket.

In book 17, Murder on a Midsummer Night, one of the characters, Professor Rowlands, says in the middle of telling Phryne a story, “Dear me, I am prosing on.” I thought that was such a funny way of describing storytelling in conversation, I just couldn’t resist borrowing it for this blog. I’ll be borrowing the Honorable Phryne Fisher again in the future when I talk about differences between books and their live action counter-parts.

In the meantime, here I’ll be, prosing on, talking about storytelling in its many forms and how we can all prose on better. I hope you’ll join me!
