Spring break is next week for me. While I can't guarantee that I won't spend it sick, wellness is looking pretty likely. I have nowhere to go, and nothing except a pile of papers and several presentations to work on.

The thought of finishing a fiction project has been nagging at me. And, oddly, the story that is nagging the loudest is the one I started for NaNo '05. One of the narrative structures used to tell the story is legends, particularly of the "how X came to be" variety. I've got the Grimm's fairy tales and Native American (Algonquian and Pomo style) legends covered; what I really need is legends from other places in the world, especially if they have a distinctive structure. Ideas?

The Andrew Lang coloured Fairy Books are a good source of legends and fairy tales from all over the place.

Also, you could try looking for Australian Aboriginal legends. And New Zealand Maori legends.
