Following the Quest in Daughter Am I

Again I will be at Malcom’s Round Table discussing Daughter Am I, but this time we will be focusing on the quest angle. The  hero’s path, the mythic journey, the quest — these are all different names for a particular form of  story, though the format is so infinitely changeable, that unless you search for all the elements, you might not see the similarities in such diverse stories as Star Wars, Tin Cup, and Daughter Am I. All, however, follow the hero’s path.

This virtual book tour is, perhaps, a mythic journey in itself.  I was called out of my ordinary world into the special world of blog touring by Malcolm R. Campbell (the herald) when he asked if I planned on doing a formal blog tour. My first inclination was to say no (refusal of the call) but then I decided it was worth  a try — I want to do whatever I can to let people know about Daughter Am I. So here I am (crossing the first threshold). There is much ahead of me in this cyber quest — tests, meeting allies and enemies (enemies don’t have to be human — they can be missed deadlines, lack of energy, blank mind, all the various ways life has of thwarting us). This quest in itself will be a supreme ordeal — 70 blog posts in 35 days? Yikes! But I’m sure there will be plenty of other ordeals before I can reap my reward. At the end, I will share what I learned with you, and this too is part of the journey. The hero never keeps the magic elixir of change for himself, but shares it with those back in the ordinary world. 

So, please keep me company while I embark on my quest — I can use all the allies I can get!

Our next stop is at Malcolm’s Round Table: Following the quest of ‘Daughter Am I.’ It will be painless, I promise.

    Just call me Pippin, or you can call me Pippie … just don’t call me late to meet for lattes on the road to blogland.

    I’m looking forward to following you around on your quest. But the difference is, I can take days off here and there. Son arriving on a plane tonight. Day off tomorrow I expect. Have fun – I’m sure you will.

    Thanks so much for stopping by the Round Table. Since those originally seated around that table were off on multiple quests, it seems fitting you should stop at the table near the beginning of your blog tour.

I'd love to hear what you have to say.
