Meet My Main Character Blog Tour: Meryt Brownstone of Eternal Traces

Meet My Main Character Blog Tour: Meryt Brownstone of Eternal Traces | Ancient Egypt and Nubia | Scoop.it

Last month I was tagged on the Meet My Main Character blog tour on My Sweet Delirium by Christa Wojo.

 

Here are the rules

The taggee must write a post answering the same seven questions about their MC. Then the taggee becomes the tagger and chooses five other authors. It’s sort of like a chain letter with all the potential to become a global virus.


So sorry, dear characters...

We’ll be hanging out all your dirty laundry for everyone to see. You better put on your dark sunglasses and prepare to fend off the paparazzi.

Knowing-Nubia - Al-Ahram Weekly

Knowing-Nubia - Al-Ahram Weekly | Ancient Egypt and Nubia | Scoop.it

New hypotheses, though, attest to Nubian civilizations being the origin of ancient Egypt. In other words, the ancient Nubians were the progenitors, and their cattle-based culture, the precursor of the Egyptian civilization. 

Shonda Brock's insight:

"It is reasonable to presume that the status of royal women in ancient Nubia was far more significant than in ancient Egypt."

"Have you ever been dying to tell a story, yet at the same time afraid to tell it?  I don’t mean just any around-the-way tale, but a true story that happened to you and no one else knows. I’m talking about every time you think to open your mouth to tell it, your heart starts pounding, your tongue becomes the Sahara Desert and the fear of saying it out loud makes you change your mind."
