Brooke Johnson is a stay-at-home mom and tea-loving writer. As the jack-of-all-trades bard of the family, she journeys through life with her husband, daughter, and dog. She currently resides in Northwest Arkansas but hopes to one day live somewhere more mountainous.

[Author’s note: I am currently suffering from an annoying, stuffy cold as I write this, so if it doesn’t make sense, blame the weather.] I always seem to forget how much work it takes to write a novel. The first part is always easy… brainstorming characters, building worlds, plotting the story from start to finish. […]

4.5*

(caveat: I am big into WoW lore, I play Horde, maining a Forsaken mage, and I have Sylvanas's shoulder armor tattooed on)

I'm conflicted about this book. I would have rated it 5 stars but for the very last page, because I worry that Blizzard is go

VOICE by James Scott Bell

This one is mostly examples and exercises for cultivating voice in your writing, and on the one hand, I understand why the book is a bit simplistic in its explanations, since voice comes from the writer, but what is in the book felt really superficia ...more

I really enjoyed seeing Rhonin again, and maybe I'm biased because of that, but I enjoyed this a lot, even if most of it was pretty predictable.

Beginnings, Middles & Ends by Nancy Kress
Rate this book

This was a really quick, easy, and informative read. A lot of what Nancy talks about in this book is stuff I already knew, but I've increasingly found that the value in craft books for me is not so much the "knowing" of something, but the trigger to ...more

“Brother Cavil:

In all your travels, have you ever seen a star go supernova? ...

I have. I saw a star explode and send out the building blocks of the Universe. Other stars, other planets and eventually other life. A supernova! Creation itself! I was there. I wanted to see it and be part of the moment. And you know how I perceived one of the most glorious events in the universe? With these ridiculous gelatinous orbs in my skull! With eyes designed to perceive only a tiny fraction of the EM spectrum. With ears designed only to hear vibrations in the air. ...

I don't want to be human! I want to see gamma rays! I want to hear X-rays! And I want to - I want to smell dark matter! Do you see the absurdity of what I am? I can't even express these things properly because I have to - I have to conceptualize complex ideas in this stupid limiting spoken language! But I know I want to reach out with something other than these prehensile paws! And feel the wind of a supernova flowing over me! I'm a machine! And I can know much more! I can experience so much more. But I'm trapped in this absurd body! And why? Because my five creators thought that God wanted it that way!”
Ronald D. Moore

Orson Scott Card
“For children love is a feeling; for adults, it is a decision. Children wait to learn if their love is true by seeing how long it lasts; adults make their love true by never wavering from their commitment.”
Orson Scott Card, Pathfinder

J.R.R. Tolkien
“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

Diana Wynne Jones
“I think we ought to live happily ever after.”
Diana Wynne Jones, Howl's Moving Castle

J.R.R. Tolkien
“The future, good or ill, was not forgotten, but ceased to have any power over the present. Health and hope grew strong in them, and they were content with each good day as it came, taking pleasure in every meal, and in every word and song.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
