• The Writer


    Hello! My name is Laura, welcome to my blog! I write weird stories, collect dragon plushies and stay up too late with my nose in a book. I am a wife, mom and child saved by grace. My hope is that you find encouragement here or at least a smile or too.
    God bless!

    We have come from God, and inevitably the myths woven by us, though they contain error, will also reflect a splintered fragment of the true light, the eternal truth that is with God. Indeed only by myth-making, only by becoming 'sub-creator' and inventing stories, can Man aspire to the state of perfection that he knew before the Fall. Our myths may be misguided, but they steer however shakily towards the true harbour, while materialistic 'progress' leads only to a yawning abyss and the Iron Crown of the power of evil.
    ~J.R.R. Tolkien

    "The only just literary critic," he concluded, "is Christ, who admires more than does any man the gifts He Himself has bestowed."
    ~J.R.R. Tolkien

    “Fantasy is escapist, and that is its glory. If a soldier is imprisioned by the enemy, don't we consider it his duty to escape?. . .If we value the freedom of mind and soul, if we're partisans of liberty, then it's our plain duty to escape, and to take as many people with us as we can!”
    ~J.R.R. Tolkien

    "Writers who see by the light of their Christian faith will have, in these times, the sharpest eye for the grotesque, for the perverse, and for the unacceptable. To the hard of hearing you shout, and for the almost-blind you draw large and startling figures."
    ~Flannery O'Connor

    You write to communicate to the hearts and minds of others what’s burning inside you. And we edit to let the fire show through the smoke.
    ~Arthur Polotnik

    Words - so innocent and powerless as they are, as standing in a dictionary, how potent for good and evil they become in the hands of one who knows how to combine them.
    ~Nathaniel Hawthorne

    "There are forms of insanity that condemn people to hear voices against their will, but as writers we invite ourselves to hear voices without relinquishing our hold on reality or our right to control."
    ~Writing Fiction by Janet Burroway

    Christians have sometimes been suspicious of stories, because they really can influence you. If you read the Twilight novels once a month for a year, I think you'd be a different human afterward—and not a sparkly one.
    ~Nate Wilson

The Journey

This is a poem I wrote for a novel that’s next in line. It’s the story of an older girl who is magically transported to another world. (It communicates part of the story.)  It’s not perfect but I hope you enjoy it.

 

Over dark mountains I glide,
On wind swept clouds I ride.
To a land that evil had claimed,
To a heart that time had maimed.

Where adventure lay in wait,
Where love plotted with fate.
I stepped into a world of doom,
Entwined in life’s cruel loom.

Two hearts together found healing,
Two worlds in the cosmos went realing.
Side by side battles we fought,
Hand in hand loves peace we sought.

Together we defeated the evil holding the land,
And watched as victory spread out as a hand.
But fate had something else in store,
That would leave our hearts broken and sore.

When dawn brighten on that cruel day,
Not even love would let me stay.
We said farewell with tears like rain,
Never knowing if I would return again.

To a land where mysteries roam,
Through mist and time,
Ayden, Ayden, take me home.

    Laura, you’ve inspired me to try again, not in my own strength for my own glory, but in His strength for His glory. I’m doing a Christian fantasy allegory as well. I’m using my blog (www.aloveofbooks.wordpress.com), which used to be book reviews (and will still have some reviews) to write about how it’s going.

      Oh Zoe I’m so glad to hear that! 😀 Praise God! I know He will bless you for your choice.
      I will tell you, it won’t be easy, but keep giving it all to Him and never forget the heavenly goal to which you are working. I can’t wait to learn more about your story on your blog. God bless you Zoe. 🙂

      In Christ,
      Laura

      P.S. Weeeel, since you said please…………
