Alright, I was just informed of a mistake that I did.  On the picture of my last post, the picture of the front and back of the The Kingdom of the North, I didn't put Leah's name in the 'author' section.  Well, it was late when I did this and I was tired so please just imagine that Leah's name is there.  Thank you.  Leah you have given me so many awesome ideas and I love them!

My Books

Here is the first look at my story that I've been working on for two years.  It's called, "The Silent Seeker", as shown in the picture.

This is the prologue and it tells a little bit about my story.

If I ever published my book this is what the front and back cover would look like.


more pages done!

even MORE pages done!  I'm actually on page 121 right now!

This is my map I made up for all of my stories I've written.  In the last post I said that Devin lives in Greenock Village.  You'll find it, near the right, in Faltenhime.

Leah and I are writing this book together

This is the back of the book

This is the front and back cover of the book if we ever published it.  The Kingdom in the North is located on the map in Halosmaya Village in Nurm.  I know that the village isn't technically in the north so I'm not sure how 'the kingdom in the north' happened;?  I guess the castle in the kingdom is facing the north.  The evil castle Alcazar is facing the south.

I just thought I'd share this with you since several of you have asked me about it:)

Awarded Maybe? ;)

Hey, so Megan awarded me...actually I'm not sure what she did to me...but she gave me a couple questions to's kinda like an award;)

Here are her questions for me.
1: What are you working on?
Well, I'm currently working on a book called, 'The Silent Seeker'.  I can't tell you much about it because I'm planning on blogging about it sometime in the future.  But I can tell you that it's a about a young man named Devin, who's seeking revenge on his uncle for killing his family.  It's in the medieval err.  Devin lives in Greenock village in the region of Faltenhime.  I'll show you a map of the region he lives in when I post about it.

2: How does your work differ from those of its genre?
Well, first off, because I completely made it up and I didn't copy anyone else's ideas.  Secondly, some of my scenes are based off of dreams that I've had.  Some of you might know this, but I've given Megan some scene ideas for her books, and some of those ideas are based off of my dreams.  

3: Why do you love what you write?
Because it makes my imagination bigger:)  Ever since I've started writing, which was probably when I was twelve, my imagination has gotten more imaginable=D

4: How does your writing process work?
Well, I don't really have a huge process, but I try to write my story whenever I have the time.  I try to go in order with writing the chapters but sometimes I get certain ideas that don't fit into the chapter I'm writing.  So, I just write my idea down in a different document and then bring it in to fit somewhere else.

I just got the twelfth chapter done of The Silent Seeker!  Yay!  Each of my chapters are around ten pages long.  Some of them are up to thirteen or down to six pages, depending on where there's a good stopping point.

Anyways, here are the questions for those I nominate: By the way, you ask the same questions for your nominees that you answer:)

  1. What are you working on?
  2. How does your work differ from those of its genre?
  3. Why do you love what you write?
  4. How does your writing process work?

1. Macie--Extraordinary 
I know that you just finished your book but I would still like to know about the process of your writing:)  

2. Darrion and Willow--The Call 

Darrion's has actually completed the first file, The Watchmen Flies, and is now starting on the second edition.  I love her car chasing, gun shooting, best friends action book!  It's modern but it's by far one of the best modern books I've read=D

Willow is in the process of writing a medieval tale called Friends and Enemies.  I would go check it out if you like the medieval times.  Even if you don't like medieval times, which I don't see why you wouldn't, she still has a wonderful book well written:)

I've have finally started to read her book but haven't gotten very far.  But so far it's really good:)  I can't wait to read all of it+D

As you can tell by the capitalized title, I really enjoy camp and I miss it already.  This was my first year, in seven years, being a Junior Counsellor.a.k.a. JC.  What was even better was that my mom was my senior counsellor!  I can't wait for next year's camp=D  Here are some picture for you.  Enjoy!

 When we left for camp, it was very foggy out

 Who doesn't bring snacks on long road trips?

Chloe and Emily

Me and Lily...I mean...Lily and I:)

I love taking picture of skylines=D


 A lovely water pump

 Camp has the most beautiful scenery EVER!

 The lovely view from our cabin, Green Gables.  unfortunately I don't have a picture of our cabin

 trees, trees, and more trees

 Mr. Tim, the speaker for that week did chalk talks for us!

He used florescent chalk

 The Book Of Life!

 Sports were probably my favorite thing to look forward to!  I loved to ref Ultimate Ball and enjoyed getting some sun.

 GaGa Ball is always a big hit at camp!

 I helped my mom and Lily with games for activity class

Another activity was archery.  This is Grace practicing for the small archery competition

Nolan competing in the competition with onlookers

I love the singing!

 Lily, Chloe B, and I found a new kind of Bible.  It's called the 'Chunky Bible".  Lily thought it looked like a jewelry box...lols!

Proverbs 31:10
"Who can find a virtuous woman?  for her price is far above rubies."

 Chloe and Emily inside Green Gables during quite time

It seems like forever ago that camp started.  Now it's over and I'm counting down the days till next year...not really.  I thank God that we are able to go to Storybook Camp every year:)

My Interesting Eyes!

I woke up one day and my eyes were yellow!  YELLOW!  They're normally brown.

I was like, "Hey, I'm Hiemdall!"

 someday my eyes are green...

 ...somedays my eyes are really clear and sparkly...

 ...somedays they're brown...

...and somedays they're red...

Thank you, God, for my awesome changing eye color!

"Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen." 1:7

When the Roll Is Called Up Yonder
When the trumpet of the Lord shall sound, and time shall be no more,
And the morning breaks, eternal, bright and fair;
When the saved of earth shall gather over on the other shore,
And the roll is called up yonder, I'll be there.

When the roll is called up yonder,
When the roll is called up yonder,
When the roll is called up yonder,
When the roll is called up yonder, I'll be there.

On that bright and cloudless morning when the dead in Christ shall rise,
And the glory of his resurrection share;
When his chosen ones shall gather to their home beyond the skies,
And the roll is called up yonder, I'll be there.

Let us labor for the Master from the dawn till setting sun,
Let us talk of all his wondrous love and care;
Then when all of life is over, and our work on earth is done,
And the roll is called up yonder, I'll be there.

"A Friend Loveth at All Times"

Some friends, several of my family members, and I stayed in a hotel several weeks ago.  I've never stayed in a one room, besides the bathroom, hotel.  The room was small and cute but we fit!

Me, Emily(my sister), Leyla, and Chloe.  Leyla and Chloe are sisters!

 Enjoying the hot tube:)

"Welcome to your room!  Enjoy your stay!"

Friends are such a blessing from the Lord!

Calm Before the Storm

Storms amaze me!  What amazes me even more, is our Creator!  Whenever I'm afraid in the storm I sing, "When I am afraid, I will trust in You, I will trust in You, I will trust in You; when I am afraid I will trust in You; in God alone I pray."  We cannot control the storms; but God is in control of everything!  
     God has a purpose for everything he does, even though it may not seem like it. Whenever I'm in a storm, I try to make a bad situation into a good one. I like to remind myself that God made the rain, thunder, and the lightning. Whenever I hear thunder I always imagine that God is bowling. It helps with the fear:)  A little while ago, there was a storm headed our way.  I am just amazed at how powerfully terrifying our Creator is.
You know the saying, "Calm before the storm"?  Well, let me tell you was so calm that every single sense of mine came to life.

I felt a different fear that I'd never felt before and I also felt terribly amazed at God's wonders.

It wasn't dark out but a hazily grey. It felt like I was in a dark place because there was literally no wind, no noise, no nothing. But in the distance you could see a small patch a lightning, brightening up every few seconds.

Then just as if I had realized I had been standing in the snow without shoes, all my senses perked up as the tornado sirens turned on. It was quiet for but a moment but then that long wail of the sirens came from several different neighborhoods

I didn't know what to feel; the feeling was so terrible and wonderful at the same time.

God is truly amazing! He controls the weather. He controls EVERYTHING! 
It reminded me of, "Be still, and know that I Am God." 
I'm thinking on writing a book called 'Before The Storm', just to show people how truly amazing, wonderful, and majestic God is! There aren't enough words to describe our Creator.

Driving into a storm

An awesome cloud:)

"The name of the Lord is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe." Proverbs 18:10

"Be still and know that I am God..." Psalm 46:10

I really like the panorama setting

"Hear attentively the thunder of His voice, And the rumbling that comes from His mouth." Job 37:2

This picture reminds me of when Jesus was on the cross and the sky grew as dark as night.  It was actually around 11:00 am when I took this picture.

"I form the light and create darkness, I make peace and create calamity; I, the Lord, do all these things." Isaiah 45:7
