• 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

Update #2

So… here’s what’s been happening.

  1. I got sick again.  I think it’s time for me to take the hint; Get to bed late for more than two days, get sick.  Well, as they say, three times the charm.  Oi.
  2. Chapter eleven is… uh… well, I put a dent in it… or a sliver.  Cold meds and the ability to think creatively without falling asleep don’t mix I’ll have you know.
  3. My second foot surgery (to remove the screw they put in,) is this Wednesday, the day after tomorrow, (isn’t that a move? Okay, rambling).  So we’ll see how this week goes.  I’m not counting on getting much work done, but I’ll do what I can.  Guess I’m going to end up using one of those two weeks I had as leverag.  Lord willing that will be the only one. *gulp*  Help.
  4. I love babies, I love watching them discover new things.  Like grass!  We went to a Mother’s Day barbecue at my brother’s in-laws yesterday and my niece Ellie, (who is eight months old), decided she wanted to pull back the blanket she was laying on and see what was underneath.  Well, she placed her little hand on the grass and made the cuties face imaginable!  Her little nose wrinkled up and the look on her face said, “What is that stuff!”  She wasn’t sure what to make of it until daddy pulled some up for her to see then it was, “Oh!  That’s what it’s for!” rip! 
  5.  I like flowers.  I like having a house full of beautiful flowers.  Mother’s Day=lots of nice flower. 🙂

 Okay, guess it’s back to revision, or, right now, more like trying to kick my mind into gear so I can revise.  I’ll just keep telling myself, “This one then one more!  Only one more!” 

Have a great week.
God bless,
