On this blog, we often talk about the power of story and the high calling we as creatives have to express Truth in a new way, to show the glory of God in dark places, and to reflect God’s creative image by creating fantastic things. We also lament the fact that we’re in a strange […]

NaNoWriMo Week One

NaNoWriMo Week One

November is a crazy month for me. Along with one son’s birthday, my husband’s birthday, several nieces’ and nephews’ birthdays, Thanksgiving (including family coming to town), an annual weekend event at Church, acquiring and editing stories for Havok’s January issue, and various other life-related things, I’m also trying to write a novel. So far, I’m […]

It’s That Time Again

It’s That Time Again

It’s that time again. The time when writers everywhere are gearing up for National Novel Writing Month.

I have participated almost every year […]

Creationism vs. Evolution

Creationism vs. Evolution

*Everyone takes out their perspective flags and prepares for war. Whoa. Whoa. Let’s take a moment. That’s not the creation vs. evolution that I’m writing about here. It’s a much less dramatic and personal issue in this post. What I’m talking about is the creation of a story versus it’s evolution. Sorry for the obfuscation. No […]

Massive Books Ahead!

I find it interesting as I talk with various writers of fiction – published and unpublished – that opinions vary as to just how many words should go into a novel of any kind. And I’ve found that a lot of it seems to depend on opinions based on whether or not you’re a first […]

My own ongoing journey through The Wheel of Time series….

I remember when I first saw The Wheel of Time books by Robert Jordan. It was about ten years ago when The Path Of Daggers had already come out in paperback. I have no idea how I had missed this series, but I remember looking at this turnstile in this grocery store and seeing all […]
