On The First Day of Camp...

Image
... I was up at four a.m.
(Well, three thirty eight, to be exact.)

Greetings all!!

Well, the first day of Camp is over for me. I've had a pretty productive day!

At 3:38 I woke up, two minutes before my alarm (after a very long dream in which I dreamed that I was oversleeping and not getting up early like I planned... it was weird O.o)

After getting dressed and getting everything I needed for school out of my room... came the ninja tests.

Ninja Test 1: Make it through the child gate at the top of the stairs and the down the stairs. Silently.
Because "you wake them, you watch them" is my mom's rule about siblings when I decide to get up at insane hours of the morning.
Ninja Grade: Passing. No children woke up. And I only tripped in the dark twice. *nods*
Time of arrival in the kitchen:


Ninja Test 2:
Procure sustenance because it is now 4:20 in the morning, and food is good. Also without waking siblings.
So I made tea.
And a toasted peanut butter sandwich.
Ninja Grade: …

Dragon's Girl -- Flash Fiction

Hello!
Today I have a flash fiction story for Rachelle O'Neil's Flash Fiction Challenge :D
(Be sure to stop by and check out the other stories as well! I read some of them, and they're really good! :D)
I was given the prompt "Most people would've screamed at the sight of it. She laughed." by Sarah, and I could use it in any form.  Dragon's Girl ended up at 630 words. Enjoy!
Most people would have screamed. She laughed.  Laughed as the dragon streaked across the sky. Laughed as she was swept into her mother’s arms and carried at a panicked, jostling pace. Laughed as the dragon landed in front of them and drew in a smoky breath. The bright, carefree giggles of the infant bubbled out of her mouth and hung in the air. The dragon paused, staring at the child. It crept closer, moving lightly like a cat across the rubble, eyes alight with curiosity. The trembling mother backed away, but the dragon kept coming. The woman stepped backwards again and felt the groun…

A Tale for... Thursday? Jack

Image
This should have been up on Tuesday, but one thing led to another and, well, it wasn't. By the way, does anyone know how to schedule posts on blogger? I've tried to schedule posts three times and each time it's gone rather badly. :P So any and all help would be appreciated!

Anyhow, today I have a review of Jack, a new release by Chautona Havig! :D


Description:

A lot of hullabaloo on the prairie.

Jack Clausen has led a hard, lonely life, but he’s content with a good job as a cowboy, a faithful horse, and the Lord. But when a near tragedy flings him into the path of a lovely young lady, Jack’s resolve to stay single and alone wavers.
Hazel Meissner has everything a young man could hope for–kindness, gentleness, and just enough playfulness to keep things interesting, but when accusations tear at their relationship, Hazel’s true strength emerges.

Without forgiveness, many lives will be irrevocably changed.

Jack is the first book in the Ballads from the Hearth series. This boo…

Short Pieces Day 2 Prompt

Hey-o all!
(On an unrelated side note, does anyone know where "hey-o" comes from? Uglies? The Safe Lands trilogy? A Time to Die? Did I even spell it right?)
(End unrelated side note)

So I'm participating in a week of prompts and short stories. The prompt for day one can be found here. And (hopefully) I'll be putting up my short story from it later today. You can find details about the week here!

Anywho, here's the prompt I'm giving!

It burned her hand, and she flung it as far away from her as she could.

The word limit is 5,000 max, but it can be as short as you'd like! Have fun!

Tally ho! (No worries, I know what that one's from ;)

Character Interview: Izzy

Image
So the other day, Rachael over at The Art of Writing for Himinterviewed my character Liam (From my WIP Where Loyalties Lie) and today I got to interview her character Izzy from her novel Awaken the Deliverer!

What’s your favorite color? Probably black. *grins*
What is it like being the princess of Marilla? It’s definitely an interesting experience, I won’t say that it’s fun, not all of the time anyway. 
What is your favorite part about being the princess of Marilla? Hmm, *squints eyes in concentration* I am going to have to say the food. 
If you could spend an entire day doing anything you wanted, what would you choose to do? I would sit in my room all alone and eat cake. Or go visit with Kiera, or…*trails off*
What would you say is your best trait? *flashes a grin* I think my sharpness!
Your worst? Ehhh, um, probably my stubbornness. 
If you had to make a guess, how would you think you’ll meet your future husband? At some party my Dad threw together! Yup, that’s it.  
Thanks for coming, Izz…

Help?

Hullo everyone!
So, one of the things I've heard is that people would like to see more of my writing on my blog.
The thing is... Although I'm motivated to write right now, I can't for the life of me come up with an idea.
So I'm putting this out here: Give me a prompt, and I'll do my best to write a story!
They'll probably be flash fiction legnth, 1000 words max (though this isn't set in stone), and the prompts can be any type you want. Songs, phrases, images, throw 'em at me! :)

(Just keep them clean, ok? Thanks :)

In with the New Year, Out with the Old

Annum novum faustem felicem- thus I bid thee cheer!
Annum novum, faustem felicem- in the coming year!
*grins* So, it's 2016. How did that happen, again? I mean, I could've sworn it was just Christmas Eve 2012 and I and my friends were discussing whether or not the world was actually going to end. (The majority of us were right ;)
Anyway, time to take a look back. *trumpets blare*
