• 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

Coming Back to Earth

Hello World of Scribblings.

After jumping off the face of the earth for a while, I am finally returning.  Where was I?  Well…

NaNoWriMo September – Though I didn’t finish, I made much needed progress on the first act of this novel.  The problem is it just keeps growing and I realized it would be better if I stopped, back tracked, and took my time.  (The first draft was 60,000 words and it’s needs to be twice that… it’s turning into a monster!)

I went out of state – I had the privilege of attending a Young Living event in Utah.  It was a blast!  (Don’t know what Young Living is or interested?  Shoot me an email! worldofscribblings@gmail.com)

And last but not least…

I’ve had morning sickness so bad that looking at a computer screen made it worse.

What was that?  Did I say “morning sickness”?  YES I DID!  😀  MY HUSBAND AND I ARE GOING TO HAVE A BABY!!!!!

I’m just a little excited. 😉

I was planning on doing NaNoWriMo this November, now I’m not sure if I will be able to keep up.  Some days I can be on the computer and be fine, but most days it makes me feel sick.  (weird, I know…)  We shall see what happens once November rolls around.

Oh, and my husband and I celebrated one year of marriage.  Crazy.  One year…and what an amazing adventure it’s been. 🙂

That’s it.  Hopefully my stomach (and exhausted brain) will cooperate enough so there are more new posts on here, but we shall see.

Until then,

Sincerely yours,
Laura B.
