• 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

Six Word Stories

College classes started for me yesterday, and I wanted to share with you all a fun exercise I did in class.

An ice-breaker/exercise my Fiction Writing professor had us all do in class yesterday, was write six words stories about ourselves.  At first I thought it would be hard to think of a six word description of myself, but once I got going, it was easy and lots of fun.

For your enjoyment, here are my six word stories.  How well do you think they fit me? 🙂

“People running through me head.  Help!”

“Lost in my own little world.”

“Lost in imagination; be back later.”

And then, one just for fun that came to me later…

“When dealing with dragons, bring candy.”

Can you think of a few six words stories about yourself?  Comment and share them with me!

  1. May ooze sarcasm – be forewarned. 🙂

  2. dang it that was five!

  3. May exude thick sarcasm – be warned!

    Variety of talents exceed available time.

    Loving God, loving life, loving others.

    Randomness is the paprika to life.

    Charries call, but homework trumps all.

    Without music, life would B-flat. (not my own original work, but it fits. :D)

    …this IS fun. 🙂 I’ll have to think about some more of these…

      Aren’t they? I think I could have written them all afternoon. 🙂
      I can’t wait to read more!

  5. Hmmm…:D
    Distracted by anything coming my way
    Talking with charries distracts from life
    Drama over everything big or small
    Time goes by so quickly here!
    Tangled in fabric, yarn, and words

    Think they fit?
