Reflection

IMG_7753
Most of the timemy life doesn’t end up the picture perfect wayI thought it would. True there are goals I’ve achieved that I never thought I would. But for every goal I reachthere always seems to be another “thing” I need to be doing to make my life be as great as I think it should be. There are the people who post their perfect moments, and to be honest sometimes it stirs jealousy up in me.... Read more of this blog post »

“It was funny the things you noticed before a battle – the dust in the air hanging as if suspended in time. Drale almost wanted to part it with his hands and see what lay beyond. The huge pines cast shadows on the glad above the town and in the calm that descended Drale drew his sword and faced his attackers in a pool of liquid moonlight.”
Elizabeth Novak

“What if we spoke every word as if it was our last?
Would we hurry to impress the masses with our wisdom?
Would we capture humanity in a poets hurried flow?
Would you even care?
I could speak as if my words were my last.
But you wouldn't remember them until I'm gone.”
Elizabeth Novak

“There’s more ways to stop a man then with an arrow in the heart!” the first shaft struck Drale in the shoulder and the moon blossomed red through the dust suddenly swirling in murky streams. Drale cleared his head and charged into his enemies sword raised high above his head, then a cloud covered the moon and the forest went black.”
Elizabeth Novak

“Some books should be tasted, some devoured, but only a few should be chewed and digested thoroughly.”
Sir Francis Bacon

“When you pray, rather let your heart be without words then your words without heart. ”
John Bunyan

“Who are you?" he asked.
I am the future queen of this world, at the very least. You may refer to me as Mistress Koboi for the next five minutes. After that you may refer to me as Aaaaarrrrgh, hold your throat, die screaming, and so on.”
Eoin Colfer, The Time Paradox

“After all," Anne had said to Marilla once, "I believe the nicest and sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens but just those that bring simple little pleasures, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string.”
L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Avonlea

“I never tell anyone exactly how clever I am. They would be too scared.”

Elizabeth Ah ah awesome! I'm first on hold for it thanks to you!
Oh do you know when the new His Fair Assassin book comes out?
Can't wait to read both of these now.


message 106: by MC

MC Heya. The third book of Throne of Glass just got released today. I have it on ebook. I'd either buy it or reserve it at the library soon, as you'll wait a long time if you don't.

It is pretty cool. Right now I'm actually only on an acre and a half. But I think we're planning on getting a pigmy cow.

I'm doing okay. My knee hurts a bunch from physical therapy. But other than that I'm okay! :) I can't wait to see you. I have two books I want you to read! One is a Christian dystopia.:DDD

Elizabeth Hmmm, no I hadn't heard of the site. Sounds cool! Thanks.


Elizabeth I would like to. I have some ideas for new books but I've actually be helping/editing/writing for my family's magazine. The Girlhood Home Companion, so I've been a bit busy with that.


Elizabeth Awesome! Then you know exactly what I'm talking about. :)


Elizabeth Haha, well thank you. In my family you can't help being either an author or an editor. My mom has written an book and edited a magazine, my older brother has written a book, my sister is a journalist and my grandpa is writing his third book. So you see I had to do something to. *wink*


Elizabeth Your welcome. I hope you enjoy my book, though technically I'm just an editor.


Elizabeth Thanks!


Elizabeth No problem.


Elizabeth Cool!


Elizabeth I think so, yes.


Elizabeth Pretty good. Bit nervous right now though. The play that I'm in has it's first performance tomorrow.


Elizabeth Hiya


Elizabeth No problem Lisa, we seem to have a lot in common.

message 71: by Sandy

Sandy Hey Elizabeth! My nanowrimo story takes place in the medieval period, and I've done little to no research at all before starting (I only decided to do nano the night before it started, lol :D). I was wondering if you knew like, what kind of carriages they had back then. My story takes place in a fictional country, but if anything it sort of resembles Nottingham. Just wondering - did they have covered carriages back then or just really austere wagons or...what? It's okay if you don't know though. Thanks =)


Elizabeth Yeah....*sniff sniff*

Annie Same here :( so sad.
