My Story

Posted on: November 26th, 2011 by Hannah Beasley No Comments

This week was a time of baking and preparation for Thanksgiving, a time to spend a few precious moments together as a family, simply being together and drinking french presses at our favorite coffee shop. This week was me urging my brother Micaiah on to finish his novel by November 30st, spending hours talking with him about his plot and how to go about writing a whole novel. We’ve spent hours outside doing nothing but writing! This week was decorating pie shell leaves to go on the pie and cake that we had on Thursday, with the help of Jo….

Every morning I get up with the sun and go outside to write, and I get to watch the sun rise as my words take shape on the page. Each sunrise is gorgeous – each unique, each stunning. And I can never get past the breathtaking light that filters through the brilliant-colored leaves; the golden light that transforms everything into something beautiful. It’s always so peaceful, then, early in the morning when no one’s around to disturb the silence of the dawn. This is what my mornings have been, almost every day of this month.

{I’m trying to decide on a title – it was originally A Day of Darkness and Not of Light, but that’s really long and somewhat clumsy. I’ve been thinking about naming it Ten Thousand Shall Fall or And the Earth Wept…thoughts?} *Note – this is set in a medieval type world, and the people of the land are pagan, worshipping foreign gods. The Southern tribes, quiet and still for many years, are now gathering like a storm and come marching forward to do battle with the lands of the North. Joash and his mother live virtually alone in their part…

Abigail Kraft is hosting a blog party – it’s all about people being their real, authentic selves. So here we go – day one! =D Don’t forget to link up and join in – she’s having quite a few fun giveaways, too. ;) 1} What’s the nerdiest/geekiest/weirdest thing about you? I wear glasses and love all things html/css/computers. Classic geek look, I guess. ;) 2} If you could live in a fictional universe from any book, movie, or television show, what would it be? Middle Earth. Hands down. I would so be an Elf or a Man (as in, human,…

(Don’t ask me what’s with Micaiah’s facial expression) Maria is starting an Etsy business, and will be selling some of the clothes and crafts she’s made – and, of course, she designated me as the fashion photographer for the day. There’s a gorgeous field out behind our house that we love to use for photoshoots – in fact, that’s where we did my senior shoot and Micaiah’s latest photos, too. We actually don’t own the field. I guess, technically, we shouldn’t go back there, considering the fact that we don’t own it, buuuut, sometimes it’s just too much to resist….
