I love writing. Especially Creative Writing, but any kind of writing peaks my interest. I love writing essays, biographies, reviews, blog posts (ha I think we knew this one…), short stories, and novels. Ok, so I’ve only completed one novel, but I’ve written other loooong short stories that could possibly be categorized as novels. However, after my book, “Holding the Future Hostage” is published, I plan on writing more novels, God willing.
Along with my love for writing comes my love for reading. Actually, it might be the other way around, because I think I love reading more than writing. Fiction is my genre, especially fantasy and sci-fi. I love how you can travel anywhere and use your imagination to its fullest extent as you relate with characters, cry when they cry, laugh when they laugh, and so on.
I think my favorite book ever is, “The Princess Bride”by William Goldman (or otherwise know as S. Morgenstern 😉 ). This masterpiece evokes such emotion…good and bad…anger and tears….love and hate. It has the best love story, the best battles, the best thrill……its so amazing. I couldn’t put this book down, and now that it’s been a couple years, I long to read it again. The movie is amazing as well – but I wouldn’t expect much less since it was co-produced by William Goldman. Of course he was going to match the movie to his book. 😉
Ok, so back to writing. I think I got a little distracted there. 😛 I’m taking this Literature Analysis Class for school this year, and I have to say, I am *loving* it. It’s the most fun thing I’ve done in a long time. It’s been so interesting to learn more about the other students in my class, and it’s just such an amazingly fun class. Like, ridiculously fun. 😀
I come home from class every week, just thinking, “wow, that class is so fun! I’m so glad I’m doing it!!” It’s the most amazing co-op I’ve done in a looong time. I’m also doing Marine Biology with a lab partner, (which I’m loving), but it’s just not the same as a class environment.
For right now, I think we’re on the easy section…going over poetry and stuff. In the spring we’ll start actually writing essays and pulling our hair out with homework, so we’ll see if I’m still saying I love it by then. 😉 I hope so, though, because this class is amazing.
I also think it’s a very good class for me to be taking, since I would like to be a journalist someday…along with a known author. Or, at least an author who’s published several works. Anyway, this class is definitely preparing me for the future, whatever it may hold. Some how, I know it’s going to have something to do with writing – since I love it so amazingly much. 😉
I saw this quote before, and I don’t remember who it’s from, but I liked it so I thought I’d share it.
“I don’t know what the Future holds, but I do know Who holds the Future.”
Isn’t that comforting? We have no idea what’s going to happen in the future, but we can always count on God being there for us and keeping everything in His hand. Sometimes we may think that God has left things up to us, or we feel like our prayers are bouncing off the sky, but God plainly tells us in Hebrews that He’ll always be with us.
“I will never leave you, nor forsake you.” – Hebrews 13:5b
God is so amazing. Whenever something comes up that tests my faith, I try to remember this verse, and know that God will always be with me, He will never give up on me, and He will always be there to comfort and help me. 🙂
