On Friday evening I logged onto Twitter to find two of my favorite guys on there, William Shatner and Mark Hamill, expressing frantic concern over Carrie Fisher’s well-being. Neither of them said in detail what had happened, but I remember whispering, “Oh no no no no please no” as I tried to find out what was […]

Well, I hope everyone had a fan-TAB-ulous Christmas! I certainly did…full of cookies, Golden Retriever puppies (well, just one puppy–it’s my aunt’s new baby and I’m in love), Star Trek/Star Wars presents, gumbo, and an abundance of wrapping paper and happy giggling. And yes, I DID see Star Wars: The Force Awakens! I won’t give spoilers, but suffice it […]

IT’S HERE!!! IT’S FINALLY HERE! (Or rather, it will be tonight!) I am aggressively avoiding all spoilers from now until Sunday afternoon, which is when we plan on seeing Star Wars: The Force Awakens. I won’t read a single article, I won’t even search for it on Twitter to see what people are saying. I promise. […]

Last week I gave my friend Victoria, authoress of the Hope Writer blog, the Liebster Award. Victoria, Emily Gracen, and I have been personal friends for several years (Emily Gracen and I have been friends since she was seven and I was nine, and she introduced me to Victoria about three years ago). Remember this […]

On Monday I posted pictures of several female movie costumes I’d actually wear, and then ended it with Costumes I’d Only Wear On Pain Of Death. Today several male costumes get their time in the limelight. Now, “Teh Guys” are a little harder than the ladies, for two reasons: first of all, I don’t pay […]

I thought this would be fun! This week I’m going to post movie costumes that I, LouisianaPatriette, would wear myself with little or no alteration to necklines and hemlines. That’s important. If the hemline is up to the thighs, or if the neckline is so low that I daren’t even post a picture of it here on […]

The How To Write A Book Now (HTWABN) website was really just thrown into my lap. It was April; I was getting nervous, sick of writer’s block but not sure if the Lord wanted me to take another writing course. My mom suggested that I start researching some writing courses, perhaps one in novel writing. As I […]

Saturday morning my mom and I headed out to the strawberry patch. With my grandfather still recovering from his open-heart surgery, the gardens are now our responsibility; problem is, we have to juggle them with our normal duties and chores. But it was high time we tackled the strawberry patch. Mom and I marched down […]

“I wonder if we shall ever be put into songs or tales. We’re in one, or course; but I mean: put into words, you know, told by the fireside, or read out of a great big book with red and black letters, years and years afterwards. And people will say: ‘Let’s hear about Frodo and […]

My brother and one of my cousins got me started on Pinterest. I heard one time that Pinterest was a place where girls planned their weddings before they even had a prospective husband, and I found that remark extraordinarily amusing. But after seeing some of the great photographs of, say, landscapes, costume designs, and food […]

My brother said yesterday that I use the phrase, “There’s a sermon in that scene!” way too often. He’s right. I like to dissect movies and books, which often sounds something like this: “Oooh, that is so cool and here’s why, because this moral conflict produces this result, and isn’t that just like [insert Bible story […]

When I had to read The Iliad and The Odyssey in high school, it was so irritating because I felt like I was jumping into a story right in the middle. There were so many back stories alluded to within the first few pages of The Iliad that I took advantage of the encyclopedia (and […]
