• 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

Under Construction

Hello readers!  I just wanted to give you guys a heads up on some changes happening with the blog.

I’ve grown and changed a lot since beginning this blog back in July of 2009, and I’ve been thinking, it’s time it grew and changed with me.

The first change I’m sure you’re all wondering about is the name.  Why did I change the name?  Well, because this blog isn’t just about writing now.  Yes writing will still be a big part of it, but it is no longer the main part, and for me, the name just didn’t fit anymore.  My goal as a writer will continue to be writing for the glory of Jesus Christ, that will never change, nor will the main purpose of this blog, to encourage a new generation of writers to join me in writing for His glory.  Because of all the changes in my life, my goals, and my writing, I just believe it’s high time to give this place an update.

I have lots of new plans for the blog.  One will be to share recipes as I begin a journey of learning to cook my favorite things without sugar, and eventually, without wheat.  I will be adding another page called “Creations” for easy access to these recipes.

I also plan on adding new writing categories to help with world development, character development, story development and a few other things.

Another thing that has changed a lot are my books.  That page is due for an upgrade, as well as “Book List” and “Research Tools”.  My about me page needs an update too… Pretty much all my pages will be getting an update.

I also plan on adding more pages and categories as my life continues to change.  I have lots of new ideas for this blog and I am excited to see where it goes this year.   Who knows, maybe I’ll be writing on here more.  🙂

God bless!
