• 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

How NOT to WriMo: Rambling to Yourself in Your Text…

When your ingenious prose begins to morph into dull black on a white page, it is unadvisable to beginning commenting and rambling to oneself within such rhetoric merely for the sake of meeting your word quota for the day.


A life on the run, living in the woods your life a constant battle for survival, your house the trees, your floor the endless fields, your food what ever meat you could hunt or produce you could scavenger from the forest or steal from already poor farmers?  I could not bring her into this, I could not drag her away from what could be a good life here in Scarborough, I could not ask her to leave her aunt Lilly either.  The old woman could not live without her, being too old and feeble to make it on her own anymore, no, I shook my head, I could not take her away from aunt Lilly.

And this is where I go into ramblings of more ramblings through Stephen’s mind just because I need to get my word count in for the day or night, or whatever.  Okay Stephen, this is getting very random and boring, we need you to do something a little more interesting than sitting in bed, eating and thinking to yourself.  And Stephen says, “Well then think of something.”  And I answer emphatically, “Fine!  I will!”  (Emphatically… ooo, I used a big word.) And then the Doctor shows up in his TARDIS and tells me he’s been watching my NaNo progress and that I really should get back to the story at hand and quit rambling in my NaNo novel… oh yeah, right
