Greetings, readers! This is a list of all the original stories I have posted on my blog.
A magical sword, a frightening promise, a terrible choice. The Sacrifice is St. George and the Dragon re-told with a Lord of the Rings-ish twist.
Cover by Savannah Grace.
Cat’s Forest is an allegorical retelling of the little drummer-boy. The promised Savior takes new shape in this story, and finds himself in a fantastical world, that needs him just as much. A young, orphaned elf, who has found many risks in her dangerous world, is suddenly confronted with one she can take that may give back the meaning and beauty her lonely life has been without.
Story for Science Module #7
My science stories are stories that I wrote for school in eighth grade, that have a some of the information from my science book in them. I started part way through the year, and Module 7 is the first. Ironically, they’re all about fourteen-year-old girls. 🙂 This one is about an eight-grade girl, visiting her uncle, who is a scientist, in Siberia.
Story for Science Module #8
Module 8 of my science book was essentially about the differences between Creationism and evolution, making this by far my deepest science story! It also might be my personal favorite from the science stories. It is about a young girl who’s parents are new Christians, struggling between them and their new faith, and her evolutionist uncle, with whom she has a strong friendship.
Story for Science Modules #9 and #10
After dealing with a bunch of theology in Module 8, this story feels very light. It’s about a family on vacation at the beach, and a girl telling her younger sister about the kingdoms scientists classify living creatures in. This information is not current, and I’m not sure animals are still classified this way, but you can still read the story if you’d like. The things that are not from my science book are probably more accurate than in my other stories though, as most of it was inspired by our family vacation to Florida. It’s not my favorite thing I’ve written, but I’m still pretty happy with how it turned out. The sisters were very fun to write about! It’s the only science story that is not written in first-person, and the only one where the main character does not have a uncle who is a scientist.
The Mushroom Feast
The Mushroom Feast was inspired by my science book, but it’s not really a science story. I explained all that before Part 1, so I won’t say it again here. The Mushroom Feast may be my favorite out of all the stories I have posted on here? I’ve always been especially proud of this one. It is about a seventeen-year-old orphaned fairy named Amelia, and her fairy colony experiencing a famine.
Into the Dragons Lair
This is, um, the first story I posted on my blog. I wrote it a long time ago, and it’s. . . not that great. I’m mostly including it because someone might find it encouraging to see how far I’ve come!
And that’s it so far. If you read one of my stories, please comment and tell me what you think. I’ll take any thoughts, good or bad–I value your opinion!
