So I realized that I’d never accepted this award from the amazing icedmocha34. So… I’m doing that now. 😀

Seven Random Facts About Me

  1. I may seem like I have good comebacks and nice witty lines sometimes, but… ha-ha… yeah. It always takes me a long time to think of those, usually a week or two afterwards. Although there is the occassional one that actually works out.
  2. My room is a graveyard. A graveyard of unfinished projects that
  3. I can’t resist a chance to make someone laugh. (As if you couldn’t tell by my comparing my room to a graveyard and then not finishing the sentence about unfinished projects…)
  4. I seem to use “…” a lot at the end of sentences… I guess my thoughts tend to trail off. Go ahead. Count every time I do that in this post. And comments. And e-mails/texts for those of you who know me personally. 😀
  5. I struggle with making lists. I really do.
  6. I’m not the most organized person. And one of those unfinished projects mentioned in fact 2 is cleaning my room. 😛
  7. I just finished completing my Thor costume for church tomorrow night. Woo-hoo!!!! 😀

Those Stories

What types of Scripture do you learn best from? Proverbs? Psalms? Paul’s Letters? The stories? I definitely learn best from the stories.

For me, stories are just easier to interpret. I’ve spent so much time in literature classes learning about finding themes in stories and analyzing them that it comes natural to me now. Being a writer is probably part of it, too.

And there are so many stories in the Bible, too. Not just the ones everyone knows, like Adam and Eve, or Daniel and the Lion’s Den, or Noah’s Ark, or David and Goliath. Stories like Jephthah’s (horrible) Vow and Obadiah (Elijah’s sidekick). Jephthah made a vow that turned out so horribly that the result could have made a movie about him rated R (possibly) and Obadiah saved a hundred of God’s prophets. Some of these little known stories are really cool, and we can learn a lot from them. (Like not to make vows that you might not want to keep, Jephthah!!!!!!!!! Seriously, as my youth leader said, what did he think was going to come out of the door first, his pet goat??????)

So, enough ranting. I have no idea where I was going with this. So…

Which category teaches you the most, or is the easiest for you to learn from?

And…

What’s your favorite (or most remembered) little-known Bible story?

Help! Again!!!!

Dear fellow writers and readers, and other random people. I must say this again.

HELP!

Yep. That’s right. I’m stuck. Again.

I’m not much of an inventor.

I’m needing some help from some creative, technologically-inclined people right now. I need you to comment and share…

Ideas for technology in the future.

And I’ll need to put them in my new novel.

Thanks to your help with character names, all of my characters have names that are either (a) made up, (b) are altered to fit the time period, or (c) sound like futuristic names. Now I need inventions for the future world. The only things that I’ve figured out so far are really, really, really tall buildings, hover cars, super-fast transporters, and lights that simply float and aren’t connected to anything. And I’d love to have you help me come up with more futuristic inventions.

Please comment and share your ideas! I need all the inventions I can get! 🙂
