• 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

Playing Around with Pictures

So… my work schedule for this week ended up being really weird, so I do not have a vlog post for you… but, I do have some awesome pictures to share. 🙂

Photobucket finally updated their photo editor, and it’s rather addicting. 😉

A picture from last years OYAN Summer Workshops.  My friend’s Keifer and Carlie on our Doctor Who day.  (Keifer as the Doctor and Carlie as the Weeping Angel.)  I put the TARDIS in the back ground and added a bunch of filters, plus the words “Don’t Blink”.

I just HAD to put myself with the TARDIS. 🙂  (Picture taken by my photographer sister Katie Jenkins.)

Cover photo for Facebook.  I had allot of fun with this one.  Things I did with this… Color change, canvas filter, paper filter, smudge and mug ring stickers, ripped paper border, and blurred edges.

Archie the stalker. 😉  Couldn’t resister slipping a character into a picture with me. 🙂

I honestly don’t remember everything I did to this picture.  It was allot.

The words say:

“He’s like fire and ice and rage.  He’s like the night and the storm and the heart of the sun.  He burns at the center of time and he can see the turn of the universe.  He’s ancient and forever, and, He’s wonderful.”   (Season 3 episode “The Family of Blood”.)

“His name is The Doctor.” (Season 3 episode “Last of the Time Lords”.)

And then of course I had to re-do covers for Choices and Chances. 🙂

What do you guys think?
