The Unexpected Meeting
Dream dodged through the trees, his white tail swishing behind him. I have to stay ahead of those things!
Several hairless creatures wearing green chased after him, their metal weapons glinting in the setting sunlight.
Dream's legs ached, but he didn’t slow down. Come on. Where are you? He scanned the foliage ahead of him for any signs of the shade.
It slipped between shadows several paces ahead of him.
There you are! Dream felt the urge to initiate his own shade abilities, but kept them in check. He wanted to spend as little time in that form as possible. But with those things behind me… He shook his head. There is no way I can create an illusion.
The shouts behind him seemed to dwindle, as the slippery shade was almost in range. It flickered in and out of the shadows down an old worn path heading straight for a cave.
You’re not getting away that easy! He pumped his weary legs, urging himself to catch up.
It slid into the cav

Mufasa Meets Nala
Mufasa strode onto the savanna one summer morning. The rainy season had passed, but the grass was still wet with dew. He breathed in the morning air, taking in the scents of the earth, the plants and his animal subjects nearby. He strode with an air of magnificence unmatched by any other creature in his domain. All feared and loved him.
He stopped by the water hole and bent down for a drink. Hearing a sound to his right, his ear twitched toward it. Rising up, he licked any remaining water drops from his lips and turned toward the disturbance. The grass rustled and he saw a small face watching him. He smiled as the face disappeared in the grass. “What are you doing out here, Nala?” he asked.
The baby lioness crept from the grasses, ears and tail drooped back. “I wanted to see what you were doing,” she said, looking up with her nervous big blue eyes.
“A young one eager to seek out the king’s business,” Mufasa chuckled. “An honorable trait.&

Tips to Creative Writing
1. Know what you're writing.
It's easy to get off track while you're writing. Thus it's always a good idea to know what you're writing. As soon as you have a good grasp on what your story is about, you'll find yourself writing quicker. This includes the main plot, a majority of the subplots, and where all the vital plot points are going to be.
2. Know what inspires you and stay around it.
Now this doesn't mean that you should go through an entire personal evaluation. It just means to keep track of where you get inspired and what caused the inspiration. For some, it could be listening to music of some sort, while for others, it could be watching families at the park. Whatever it is, try to be around it whenever you can.
3. Map out your story.
Now this is something that a lot of people take out of hand. When mapping out your story, you don't want to have everything in a certain slot. Things can't be one hundred percent organized. The story could change in a way that

Hello! Here's a bit about me. :}

:bulletwhite: I am a Christian and I am continuing to learn from, grow in and love my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

:bulletpink: I have loved animals ever since I was a kid, despite my allergies to them. :noes:

:bulletred: I have been a doodler for a majority of my life, and have tried to grow my skills in that area. :pencil:

:bulletorange: I have loved movies and stories for as long as I can remember...
Actually, I remember most of them thanks to the photographic memory God's given me... which makes me cautious of what I look at/read -- because I WILL remember it. :wow:
Anyway, what I really wanted to say was that because of my love for story I am in the middle of writing my first novel. :} To God be the glory!

:bulletyellow: If you can't tell, I like to keep things orderly [despite my room's present disorder :facepalm:].

:bulletgreen: Bright and vibrant colors make me HAPPY! *Happy song starts playing*
Ahem! As I was saying, if you were to ask me my favorite color, I'd have to say RAINBOW! My family is still trying to convince me it's not a color. =P

:bulletblue: I like to mix things up! :dance: What I mean is, I enjoy creating "mixed breeds" --> mixing different kinds of animals to make new ones! God has given me several interesting designs! :meow:
Plus... I love crossovers. :happybounce: A mixture of multiple worlds. :D

:bulletpurple: I love dragons -- both the fictional kind and the real kind ~ DINOSAURS! =D

:bulletblack: I believe the Bible is true down to every detail ~ Including the part that God created the universe without the help of evolution in 6 days only 6,000 years ago. :bookdiva:

Please Comment! I L:heart:ve your feedback! :D
But please don't swear. :( I don't appreciate that and am less likely to reply. And I do want to talk with you guys. :aww:

Thank you for visiting my page! :lol:
May God bless you and keep you as you journey with Him this day. :)

Life verse: "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." ~ Jeremiah 29:11 <3
In my last journal, I talked about "brands" and how you can discover yours by looking into your favorite books and movies. Well, I was going through one of my note-books [I'm an obsessive note-taker, btw, so it's one of many :P] and came across notes about something called a "word cloud".

The author who was talking about this (Nadine Brandes) said that she creates and uses her Word Cloud to help her better define her brand, her style, but most importantly herself. After all, our "brand" is literally US. :)

Anyway, a Word Cloud is a list of words that make you feel. It stirs up emotion inside up you ~ joy, sadness, anger, fear [I feel like I'm naming Inside Out characters =P], etc. What you'll begin to notice is a series of patterns of your interests.

As an example, here are some of the categories that I have noticed have personally shown up in my cloud:
> animals (real or fictional, sentient or non)
> adventure (involves traveling to discover)
> action scenes (more than courtroom head-games or confusing love-triangles)
> bright lights and colors (scenes, characters and / or locations [at a minimum, light shining out of darkness])
> transformation (physically, spiritually and / or emotionally :aww:)
> Truth (specifically God's Truth found in His Word ~ The Bible :D)
> stories, legends, fables, etc.
> symbolism / meaning [includes elements on occasion] (character names, places and objects with purposeful meaning excite me :meow:)
> etc.

So, what about you? What are some threads that you notice in your own life / stories? :)
  • Reading: God's word
  • Watching: God work in my life :}
  • Drinking: water


This song's chorus just pops into my head at random sometimes... Just like now. :)

Winnie the Pooh -- one of my favorite childhood characters even to this day. :aww:
Well, it turns out it's going to take me a little longer before I start posting chapters of JazzelleTale on here... :saddummy:
But God is at the steering wheel, so this doesn't come as a surprise to Him. :aww: It'll all come together in His perfect timing. :)
God has recently put me in a leadership position I wasn't expecting. I'm ... excited to see what the Lord does in and through me here, but I have this tendency to be skeptical and guarded, which would really hinder my effectiveness in this new area.
I would appreciate prayer that I stay tender and receptive to the Lord's leading in this new area of my life. Thank you.
Happy [belated] Easter, everyone! :grin:
HE IS RISEN! Cling to the Cross emote :D 
As I'm more of a Plot-Writer than a Character-Writer, I have a harder time developing characters with distinct personalities... But sometimes I get to "see" organic snippets. :)
About a week ago, I had one with a concept charrie. He's an anthropomorphic otter [inspired by Redwall :D].

Me: *standing in line*

Otter: *shows up and does some push-ups --> single-handed*

Me: Show off.

Otter: *stands up* What can I say? I'm fit as a fiddle.

Me: Fit as a "fish"?

Otter: Nah. Fish are for the belly.

Anyway, random interaction that I found fun. :)

I have to fold up a piece of paper to rest my had on an try no to touch a part of the drawing after I complete a section. It is a hassle but I've got use to it.
