Summer is Fading Fast...

This last month has been insanely busy, what with hanging out with friends & family,  going to youth group, and trying to keep my room relatively clean in the meantime.  Even this week was fairly busy.  But today is not, and I thought I could write a bit on here, which I haven't done nearly enough this summer.

But alas, I will be a sophomore in just two weeks.   And that in itself is both terrifying and really exciting.  Summer is great, and sleeping in is even better, but it's getting to that point where it's too hot to do anything (except swim, but we don't have a pool or belong to one).  So I'm almost ready for school to start.

Almost.  As I told my friend the other day,  all I want to do is have choir and lunch, because this year classes are harder and we take the PSAT…not to mention that I'll be trying out for tennis, and getting my driver's permit--then license, hopefully!  Yikes, isn't that a strange thought?  Being able to drive…guess I can't escape the reality that I really am growing up.  Where's Neverland when you need it?

I don't really want to grow up, but it's also exciting, and I trust that God has a plan for me :)

Until next time!

So, except on my blog (haha), I write nearly every day, either in my journal, working on a story, poetry, etc.  And most recently I've been working on my fantasy story, which was mentioned in my last post.  A lovely friend of mine has been helping me with ideas, and thanks to her, it's really started to get out of my head and onto paper.  Thanks to her, I've actually begun to write something I've been thinking of for months.  And now there's just enough developed for me to give you a sneak peek of what I'm working on!

   A girl fell from the sky into the woods outside the small village of Belhaven.  This girl was unlike anyone in the world she now found herself in: she was human.  Now, there were humans living in Belhaven and all throughout Faymere Province.  But these people lived in a world of magic.  Magic is like a sickness--it infects those who come in contact with it.  All of the citizens of Belhaven had been exposed to magic from birth, and their bodies had adapted to living with it.  They were immune, so to speak.  But the girl who had fallen from the sky had lived in a world where magic did not exist, and so the moment she landed in the woods, the magic began to infect her.

I hope you enjoyed this little preview of what I'm working on!  My pinterest board for this story can be found here.

Writings & Such

I'm really trying with my blog this time.  Truly!  See, I'm back! :)

It's summer, and I suddenly have too much time on my hands and absolutely nothing to do.  One of my things to do this summer is to write either a short story or a novel--whichever my current project turns out to be, and I've been working on it.  Slowly.  As of right now, it's four pages long, but it's a start.

Really, I have two stories that I'm working on, but one of them is on hold because I'm out of ideas as far as characters go.  The three main ones have been developed and I've yet to make a villain.  So it's on to something new until another idea comes about.

My lovely main characters for my fantasy novel.
If you'd like to see the storyboards for my two projects, you can click this link for my four-pager and this one for the other.  Currently they are both titleless because I'm really bad at thinking of titles.

Teagan & Lindy, from my summer story.
It's been a while since I've written any poetry, because I've been working on my stories, but if and when I do write some, I'll post it.

Hopefully I'll be back soon!  I had finals, so there wasn't much time to blog last week.  Thanks for sticking around and being patient as I get back in to the flow of blogging!

Blog? What's a blog?

Do I even remember how to do this?  I'm not quite sure.

Hello, friends and family.  If anyone still reads this...

Anyway, my intentions were good.  I really did want to post weekly and I stuck with my blogging routine for a full semester.  But second semester picked up a lot and before I knew it, I hadn't updated my blog in months.  So here is the valuable lesson I have learned: blogging regularly and school are not compatible in my life right now.  However, finals are next week and after that I am on summer break, so I will have more time to blog--but I can't promise that I'll post regularly.  It's past the point where I can promise that, haha!

I think I'm getting back into the flow though.  I'll try to post some writing at some point this summer as well as other things.  Thanks for bearing with me,

follow me!
