As you may already know, last year I heard about the National Novel Writing Month, and at the last minute I decided to participate. The infectious excitement spilling from Anna and Paul Willis compelled me to try it out and I am so glad I did! With only three days before November 1st we even … More I Did NaNoWriMo!
This weekend is the time when we remember the most important act in the history of the world. When Jesus Christ gave his life to save our souls and three days later rose from the dead to reign forever! Praise His holy name!!! Here’s a poem for Good Friday from Peter’s perspective that I hope will … More A Poem: Forgiven By The Conqueror

History is made up of people. People are full of stories. Some beautiful, some hard, some priceless. Each one is special and unique. My Grandma recently moved in with us, from all the way up in Michigan. It’s so much fun for us whenever she’ll tell a story from her childhood. She has stage 5 … More Living History
I’m sure most of us can relate with Lynn in this story. 😉 Having to give things up can be hard! But God’s plan for us is always the best plan! He’s the one who already wrote our lives out! If we already have a story, why don’t we just have faith in Him and enjoy … More A Short Story: Keep Walking

They will often do something and since I know all their back story, I’ll forget to explain why they did it because to me it’s … More Getting To Know My Characters ❤
Every reader has “their” little nook, right? Mine usually tends to be near my bookshelf. 😉 My bookshelf is upstairs in my room which is perfect since I have a good reading light and a cozy, warm blanket for reading. I’d been using the ladder to my bunkbed as a bookshelf for the longest time but … More A Tour of My Bookshelf!
In celebration of finishing the second draft of my NaNoWriMo novel “The Star Under the City” here are some sneak peeks for y’all! 😀 Enjoy! What do you guys think? Do you have a favorite? Happy editing! -Mags
I really enjoyed this one! It was inspired by one picture of an old fashioned street child looking closely at a large coin. The cool thing though is what IT inspired – the dream for a full length book! Samy is only a side character in that one (which I hope to write fully someday). … More A Short Story: The Shilling
For me, writing and reading go hand in hand. I read to know how to write. I write so that I can then appreciate reading other people’s wonderful writing even more! I love both and I can never chose which I like better! But reading is most definitely one of the top things I do … More Walkin’ In A Reader’s Wonderland!
