The Daring Do Gooder Lisbeth Danielle

Here's another sample for you since Lisbeth Danielle is winning in the polls, she became our daring heroine!

           The Daring Do-Gooder Lisbeth Danielle sample (2012 Adventure)
I rushed speedily away from my pursuer but I just couldn’t get away…. What would it take to loose this guy! I knew he’d never turn tail and run as long as I had what he wanted.

“Hey you!” I yelled as loud as I could running backwards. “Catch!” I’d pulled my heavy as lead back pack from my shoulders and tossed it at him. He collapsed to ground, sputtering threats at me as I made a face at him, and disappeared round the corner. I could hear him yelling after me… “I’ll get it yet Lisbeth Danielle just you wait and when I do I’ll have my revenge!”

Yeah right he would. Villain after villain has yelled that as me but they never did. I could hear sirens in the distance and then…. No screams no protests? Did the police miss him? I just didn’t know and I couldn’t go back because…well the police didn’t exactly approve of me either, I don’t mean they’d arrest me but they would hold me for a long time saying it was for questioning but we’d both know it was because they just wanted to annoy me like I annoy them. *Grin* well who knows maybe one day they would actually manage to catch me or maybe one of those criminals would get me who knows.

Hope you all enjoyed this :)

A Careful Bound Tale Sample

Dear Readers here's a word sample of one the possibilities for my next book also I have some stand in pictures to be replaced later by actual drawings :)

A Careful Bound Tale Sample

Gwen woke up once again in Sherwood but she could still remember vaguely what she’d written down before she fell asleep “Lady Gwendolyn went once again to Maid Marien to discuss plans for the raid on the sheriff, Robin Hood stood off in the distance stating a similar plan to the Men.”
Whatever is a writer to do when she accidentally writes herself into her own book!
Gwendolyn sighed and followed the pull of the plot to Maid Marien and they greeted one another and began at once to lay out the plan… 

Here are some Pictures to give you an idea of what Gwen looks like
Lady Gwendolyn as a Child

More Winter Stuff

Poem Girl: I'm switching over since Winter is most like me she's who I'll be :)

Hello, Me again your bundle of Winter :) I just couldn't let myself leave off any more I mean I kinda left out part of Marissa's story and how mean is that! Anyways here's the rest of her part....

Ice Skating Dreamer ~ Marissa
Beginning where I left off last time. I forgot to tell you that I'm the leader of our little group though you may have guessed that by now. Now lets dive down into my story.

We all met at my house one pleasantly cold winter afternoon each girl had a shiny pair of ice skates slung over her shoulder and her hair carefully braided. they greeted me one by one and I handed them there cups of cocoa as they sat down. I announced what we would read and each girl opened her bible to Romans 8. We continued the study for an hour taking time to make remarks and comments on what we read,
we always started out little get togethers with a bible study. When we'd finished Margret  took our cups and shewed us out of course Bella was out more on her later... we went into the gazebo and  slipped on our skates, Karina grabbed my arm eagerly and pulled me onto the ice.

"Come on Lissa we need to practice."

"Practice? What for I thought we just did this for fun?" I nearly toppled over when she shoved me laughing,
 "well duh, but we need to practice for the town skate off you said we'd do it."

"I..I didn't say that, I said it sounded interesting, Karina you didn't sign us up did you?"

She smiled "Of course but you'll probably be the only winner." I stared at her aghast.

"Rina! I can't believe you we're not ready for this."

"Of course we are especially you" she did a wonderful Camel Spin that impressed even me.

"You may not know this but yours are even better." I had to laugh a little at that and copied her Camel Spin to which she they all applauded and I did a little curtsy. "Okay, I guess we could try it"

"Atta girl!" Karina patted my back hard I whirled around towards her.

"You gotta stop that Rina I almost fell again." We all laughed and well that was just the beginning.

Thanks for reading love it if you'd leave a comment :)

Don't forget to read the previous post.

Autumn is Posting

My name is Autumn Brown. Poem Girl asked me if I wanted to write a guest post, so here I am. =) 
I thought for this post I would share a drawing I did this week. : ) 
I got the idea to draw this picture when I was looking at books on amazon. I really loved the front cover, so I thought I would try to draw it. 
                               It didn't exactly turn out how I thought it would, but that's okay. :-)



Summer Here

Hello Readers, It's me Summer Green! Poem Girl thought it would be sooo cool if I posted on here today and then Autumn and then Winter (That's Snow Whites real name but she doesn't like being called Winter White says it corny) :) Sooo Poem Girl requested a poem from me. I know it should be a winter one but winter's not my season ya know? Anyways here's a poem on Summer ;)

I sit one pleasant afternoon
beneath my favorite tree
A book upon my lap
Resting on my knee.

Wind blows a gentle breeze
Sweeping against the page 
I sigh content and read thus
For a moment I cease to age.

My eyes grow heavy
With the passing of time
The summer sun beats down
And I sleep till nine. 
~Summer Green 

   Thanks soooo much for reading :D

Note: Summer, Autumn, and Winter (the Characters) are all fictional in case you haven't already guessed yet  :)

Entry for Storytellers Contest

Yeah I entered a a story contest and here's my entry :)

                                                             The Wandering Forest Princess                                             
                       This is the first tale of the daring Princess Akira Rose, as told by the witness:                                                                       Mallory Satchel
This is what I witnessed while sitting up in a tree so thick with leaves that I was never seen…but I, I saw quite a lot.
“It’s only a little farther.”  She told herself as she journeyed through the mossy forest.
She picked up the long train of her glossy green dress and hurried farther her eyes glued forward.  Her name was Akira. She was a wondering forest princess she’d always wandered as long as anyone could remember going from one place to another.
Akira stopped suddenly and smoothed her gown. Sighing she pulled a bow from her shoulder and let an arrow fly it landed with a *thud* into a branch near the head of the enemy, and before he could turn around and see her she had grabbed hold of a branch and swung herself up into the trees. His face was white as sheet he gestured for more men to come to him.
“It’s…it’s her!” he stammered excitedly a taller man stepped forward he seemed to be the commander. “You did well boy.” He called more soldiers to him. For a moment Akira felt a trill of fear (I could see it in her eyes) but it quickly subsided, after all hadn’t she meant to miss him? Hadn’t she meant to alert them of her presence so she could get away? She nodded to herself and secured her bow once again. Meanwhile the soldier she had missed was examining the arrow that he had so narrowly escaped from. Akira climbed down from the tree behind him and picked up a small smooth stone and with one quick thrust she tossed it off far into the distance. It landed echoing in the abyss. The man dropped the arrow and shakily headed off in that direction. She grabbed it again and headed away.

I watched for awhile but she did not return though the soldiers did, and I quickly scurried away looking back, but if I was to see her again it wouldn’t be that day.

Note: Mallory Satchel was only seven when she witnessed this and as she grew older she saw Akira many more times. She spent many afternoons telling tales of the princess. 

                                                                              that's all for now

How I spent my Thanksgiving

Dear Reader's, Ariella and I were talking this morning and she thinks I should write a little about how I spent my Thanksgiving she said "Since I wrote about how I spent my Thanksgiving yesterday (well sorta spent it anyways) then you should write about yours too. Fair's fair." and so here I am and here it goes.

My Thanksgiving
I spent my Thanksgiving at my Grandparents. We started out chatting and helping to get ready to eat and then...well we ate, lots and lots. I helped myself to a little of everything, afterwards my sisters and I began drawing (we all like drawing) and we did that for about twenty minutes I think? Then we played two rounds of Apples to Apples (lots of laughs erupted from many of the answers) In case you were wondering I never won :) When that was finished we watched some super funny Bored Shorts or Kid History/Kid Snippets such as Kid History: Healthy Food. Then there was something about Nerts but it never took off, all that was left was chatting and departure. And that was my Thanksgiving.

In which my name is Elisabeth?

To: The Readers
From: Ariella Corden
How is or was your thanksgiving mine was....well mine was strange, weird and actually didn't take place in 2012. Anyways here is how I spent my Thanksgiving.

       Time Travel and Turkey

Morning 8:00 AM
It happened again I woke up this morning when someone started calling out a name in my ear “Elisabeth, Elisabeth wake up dear” I opened my eyes instinctively though I never usually do especially when someone else’s name is called
“Huh? Mom?” I sat up, the woman looked down at me and frowned.

 “Elisabeth aren’t you awake yet? The men folk will be back from hunting soon and we’ll have to start cooking.”

“Cooking” I said questionably.

“Yes cooking. Elisabeth please collect yourself, there’s much to do.”

I sat up suddenly, startling her.

“What year is it!”

“Elisabeth are you feeling all right?”

“Yes of course but what year is it”

“1621 now get up we have pies to back and turkeys to pluck before the Indians arrive”
She laid out a bright red dress and yellow apron on a chair near me and motioned for me to put them on, and then she left.

I jumped up and threw the clothes on. They fit perfectly?

“1621? Did I just… Travel through time?”

Afternoon 12:45 PM
We cooked and cooked all morning. I thank mom for teaching me how to pluck a turkey and bake pies it would have been absolutely humiliating to burn a pie on this day the… the thanksgiving with the Native Americans.

 I barely even have time to write, as I speak Laurabelle is calling me to help her (Laurabelle is supposedly my older sister.)

it’s warm today the sun shines through the window where the pies are cooling it’s nice, but imagine what it would be like to be out here when they had the fever or when it’s terribly cold… I’m sorry Laurabelle is loosing her head screaming for me I should go.

Evening 7:50 PM 2012
It’s not fair all the Pilgrims, Indians, Laurabelle and my fake family got to go to the feast but me?… I return to my own time where we’re just returning from Grandpa and Grandma’s already finished the who meal so I just slaved all day and missed Thanksgiving meal in both times! Not only that, but my family seems to have no recollection that I wasn’t there. Mom says I ate twice as much as anyone so why should I be hungry? Why should I be hungry? She asks well I did just cook all day with only a bowl of oatmeal to sustain me so why shouldn’t I be?

Well Thanksgiving is ending now I suppose I’m thankful to be home.

Ariella Corden 
  Here's a picture I found in a magazine in an article about The Pilgrims and Thanksgiving in my time travel I was surprised to see that the clothing wasn't black and white as I was led to believe, but quite colorful.

Thank you for reading :)

Thanksgiving...What are you thankful for?

Dear Readers, as Thanksgiving draws near we should think about what we're thankful for. The first thing that popped into my head when I asked myself this was "what is there not to be thankful for?" I have wonderful  parents, siblings who are practically  my best friends, That I'm not forced to stay behind a wall keeping me from ever hearing the gospel, the fact that I can be a Christian and not be persecuted! Truth is I have so very, very much to be thankful for and I am, I'm so very happy this thanksgiving *shines with smiles* Thank you for reading now enjoy some pictures....

                                                                    Razzelberry Pie yum!

                                                       Cranberry Cider way better than Apple Cider
                                                                              I edited this pick!
                                                                              That's all for now :)

Just your average "normal" day

                                                   Strange, Curious, and Confusing Events

Wednesday Afternoon 1:20 PM
I woke up at 7:00 precisely and ate breakfast. Pencil and paper at my side as you’d probably guessed if you noticed how much I like to write in the last entry.
Afterwards I started my school, and yet later when I was done I washed my hair.

We had Corn Chowder for lunch a particular favorite of mine but not so much of Rosy’s who mostly picked at it (she doesn’t like corn and I haven’t the faintest idea why.) I went outside for an afternoon walk, with journal held tightly under my arm. Suddenly I had a strange feeling, the wind picked up, the weather grew colder, sun disappeared, and… something else really weird happened.

Later (I don’t know the time or the year even. Explanation to follow)
Sorry I dropped journal and in all the crowds I couldn’t find it for awhile. 

I’m completely disoriented right now my brown hair suddenly turned a pale blond and I’m wearing a plain green dress with a heavy hoopskirt and white apron, my shoes are black and pinch painfully. I don’t know what happened at all but I feel all wrong and I find myself looking over my shoulder every moment expecting something ultra strange to happen to prove to me that this is all just a dream, but it’s not. This is all too real! Sorry I have to go people are eyeing me strangely and I think I’m going to find somewhere quiet were I can sort out my thoughts.

Wednesday Evening 7:40 PM
Well I…I don’t really know what happened earlier but I’m home now and I don’t really want to think about it but I know I should so here I am. I found a small wooden bench close to the edge of town where it wasn’t so crowded and sat down staring at my lap the next thing I knew I was tramping around the whole town like I was born there, but when I reached a house I came to myself again closing my eyes in an effort the block everything out and then I had that weird feeling again and when I opened my eyes I was home. Strange I just can’t figure it out it makes my head hurt I think I shall lay down a bit. More tomorrow I think.
