• 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

Is there a piece that stands out and speaks to you?  Are you curious to know where that story came from?

Getting There…

Scribblings is moving along!  I have one more story to finish, a couple still to revise, and then it will be time to read through everything.

So far so good!  I’m nearly there! 🙂

It feels so weird to be having a book come out in a month and a half.  Weird yet exciting.  I’ve been working towards publication for so long it feels very surreal right now.

Can’t wait ’till March! 😀

God bless,

G-Nomes: A Clip from “Scribblings”

Here is a little clip from a brand new story to be featured in Scribblings.

G-nomes.  That’s right; you say the “g”.  These little guys are very particular on how you say their name.  For years people of been mispronouncing it and they have become quit indignant about it.  As a result, they have called me in for damage control.  I have been hired by these little fellows to present to the public the truth about their existence and to clear the smoke of all our modern misconceptions concerning them.

Now, Gnomes do not trust very many people and it is a great privilege if they choose to let you into their inner circle.  I only managed to find myself in such a place when I discovered one of the creatures, quit be accident, trying to make off with my whole box of Kleenex.  Gnomes have very large runny noses you see, so they are always making off with peoples tissues.  It took some time, and the rest of my secret stash of chocolate, to keep the little thing from going goblin on me, but in the end, we became friends.
