I have not read “The Ball and the Cross” (yet– I just started the audiobook last night), but I have read Chesterton’s “Man Who Was Thursday.” It was a fascinating and fantastic book, and I’d highly recommend it. The ending is just crazy, and I need to read it again. I have heard that it was inspired by the book of Job, and the…[Read more]
@Daeus Got it. Sorry. You probably mentioned that your project is historical fiction in a post I have not read yet. Okay, well since you would obviously not condone it, I think it is fine. I actually don’t think there would even be anything wrong with you writing an occultic scene (so long as you are either writing adult or upper YA literature).…[Read more]
@emma-flournoy Oh, good! It is a good read and wonderful story, but it can be really hard to understand. If you want to discuss it, I’d love to! Also here is a lecture I listened to that might help you (or should wait till you finish the book first, though): https://www.uu.edu/audio/detail.cfm?ID=874
Well, I think the only two I have watched are…[Read more]
Hey @Daeus! I know I am new, but I love dealing with ethics in fiction, especially fantasy, so I am going to jump in.
Like Emma said, it partially depends on whether or not this character and his action of predicting the future is portrayed as good. It also depends on where you have him getting his power from. Since you said sorcerer, I assume…[Read more]
@Emma-Flournoy I know…. I am running into the same problem. There are about 10 books on my reading list that are screaming to be read, and maybe a couple hundred others tugging on my brain and begging to be read, too.
You should still watch the two movies; they are still worth it. Combeferre is sweet, and so is Jolly.…[Read more]
@winter-rose Thanks for the tip on the tags. I would not have figured that out on my own. Yeah, I understand. I have a ton of Word documents, too. I’d suggest printing off all of those documents and putting them in a binder if you can. You might find that easier to use than one big document.
@Ethryndal Interesting. Maybe we can get five someday. Ah, I see that now. It still is very pretty, and it looks elvish.
@dragon-snapper Nice to meet you, too! I like your username, by the way. I’ve had writer’s block about a ton of projects but never my main one. I only get procrastinator’s block on that one, and I sure get that a lot.
@Ethryndal Hello! Yes, INTJs are rather rare, though I have meet several online. I am not surprised to find another as a fellow Tolkien nerd. I hope you enjoy the poem. It really is beautiful. What does your username mean? I assume it is elvish. Sometimes I go by “Agarisil” (blood moon– think Agarwaen and Isil) when I am feeling particularly Fae.
@Audrey-Caylin Thanks for welcoming me. Hopefully, I can figure this online community out 🙂 I have been astounded by the responses so far– I didn’t think so many people would notice me, and you all seem great. Thanks for suggesting that I join. Do you have any suggestions about what to do now?
@Kate-Flournoy Isn’t that poem amazing? Ever time I read it, I am overwhelmed with a strange sense of humbleness, duty, honor, and glory. It makes me fall in love with writing fantasy all over again.
So who is your favorite Tolkien character? I just finished listening to the Silmarillion on audiobook, and I had forgotten how wonderful his stories…[Read more]
@Emma-Flournoy I am so glad you like that poem, too! I have not been able to get it out of my head, and it has been almost a year since I read it. It really has a wondrous message.
Ooh! What is your favorite Les Mis character? Not many people have read the book (and frankly I understand), but I absolutely love how the book develops the friends…[Read more]
@Daeus Thank you for welcoming me. Out of curiosity, what is the story behind the “bestistest” comments?
One of my favorite elements of fantasy is the sense of wonder and newness that it brings. To steal the idea from Tolkien and Chesterton, fantasy is all about taking something we think we know (possess an idea through our sense of understanding…[Read more]
Well, I would like to get better connected in a Christian writing community, so here I am, even though I am a little bit worried about how this will fit into my time management. Anyways, let the social experiment begin.
My name is Gabrielle, and I am currently at a small Christian college, though I was homeschooled before. I am a tomboy, hunter,…[Read more]
