• 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

California or bust!

Hello peoples!  I have an announcement!  My family and I are taking off for Disneyland this week and will be gone untill next week end.  So don’t freak-out when the blog is dead for a while, I haven’t forgoten about it, I’m just on vacation. 🙂

Do to the craziness of life, getting ready and trying to keep up with my novel revision deadline, there is no Stephen of Scarborough this week, (and there won’t be for a few weeks.)  Sorry.  But, to hopefully make up for it, I’m going to post a picture of each of my characters, Stephen and William, so stay tuned and look for more SoS at the end of the month.  

For a quick novel update; things are going slow.  Right now I’m working on chapters five and six.  (Chapter five needed a complete rewrite and has taken an unbearabley long time to finish.)  I’m one week (or one chapter) behind my deadline for draft two, ugh, time for some major catch-up, (after vacation 😉 ).  I’m hoping chapters six and seven will be a bit less grueling, but then again, you never know.

Any way, have a great two weeks!  God bless and TTFN! 😀

In Christ,
