St. Flannery, patron saint of southern gothic writingSt. Flannery

Mixed Media Monday has a weekly challenge. I’ve been lurking on the site for a few weeks now, seeing the wonderful images that people have shared. I’ve finally decided that I wanted to share.

This week’s challenge is Pens and Pencils. Thinking about pens and pencils led me to words. Words led to writers, and writers to Flannery O’Connor. O’Connor is a wonderful writer with a dark and southern sensibility that not all readers can enjoy. She is a muse and an inspiration.
