I'm working on a fantasy story and happened upon this article by Lloyd Alexander written for the Horn Book Magazine in 1965 when he was halfway through his five book tale of Taran, the assistant Pig-keeper who becomes King in the final book, The High King. (Newbery Medal winner, 1969)
Alexander declares that his goddess of Fantasy is a Flat Heeled Muse.
(I'm linking it here because it's true, and because I want to go back and read it again and again.
