• 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

Friday’s Five: Welcome Summer!

1. Seventy-eighty (EDIT: eighty-ninety 😉 ) degree weather, nothing but blue sky and sunshine, summer is here baby! 😀  *cheers*

2. I’m sure you’ve noticed the lack of posts this week, (‘specially those waiting for SoS).  Well, the reasons for this is simple; Who wants to be on a computer when the day is so beautiful and the sunshine is calling your name?  (Plus the fact our yard is being overrun with weeds and I’ve been commissioned to destroy them.)  And……… I’m stuck on SoS. *cringes*  Yes!  My brain hiccupped, my imagination took a vacation.  I have the whole thing outlined, but there are still a few details that are added as I write, and well, I’m not sure what should happen between point A and point B.  Sorry folks.  I am going to try and get myself inspired and hopefully have the next part up for you in the coming week.  *fingers crossed*  Besides that, I am planning on continuing the Character Development, so keep your eyes out for that as well.

3. Silas as cloths!  I finally came up with a design for Silas’ outfit and now the sketch I did of him is no longer just a face, but a clothed figure.  *sighs*  Very satisfying.  I’ll be sure to scan the picture in and post it ASAP.  (For those of you who may not know who Silas is, Silas is the Ally/Love/Mentor in my next novel called Tyra’s Stone.  A new page with a synopsis and detailed description of the story is in the making and should be up soon.)

4. Anybody else have a great Fourth of July?  I did!  Even my Charries had a good time. 😉  There was a brief time when I was sitting alone watching the fireworks, and as is doomed to happen, my mind started to wonder and I imagined what all my Characters were doing around me.  The outcome was quite amusing. 🙂

5. Just saw the movie Hotel for Dogs, and thought it was really cute!  Made me cry in one part. 😦

Have a great weekend! 

In Christ,
