Hey! Welcome to Madison Grace (Author)!
I’m Madison, better known as Madi; a fourteen-year-old professional blogger, doll collector, writer, and minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. You can learn more about me by clicking here! I also blog about professional doll collecting here and living an undefeated lifestyle here.
Madison Grace is my pseudonym. I would’ve used my first and last names, Madison Lorfing, but that would change if I get married. XD
Madison Grace (Author) is my writing blog featuring writing tips, frequent updates about my WIP series of historical epics, and chronicling my journey from a writer to a published author.
I believe strongly in creating excellent moral fiction and that Christians should not be producing cheesy, second-rate entertainment. We’re pointing to Jesus; what are we pointing to Him with, trash or excellency?
Thank you for visiting, and I hope you stick around!
I agree. Christians should NOT be producing second-rate…*searches for an appropriate word to use*…..junk. No graphic “romance” scenes (if you know what I mean) no cussing, no immorality, no worlds that are practically falling apart inside out. We should be using our gifts as writers to encourage, to uplift, and to build up other Christians. My WIP is going to be addressing certain topics that young Christian girls face in middle school/high school, so I’m excited to see what you’re going to be touching on as well! Best of luck!
Amen! Ooh, your WIP sounds absolutely awesome! Thank you so much, and same to you! <3
I just followed!
Thank you SO much!
I have so many WIPs I can’t decide which to publish first, but I am thinking very seriously about The Raven and the Sparrow. If you wanna know what that’s about, visit kirstyntodd.com.
Ooh, I hope you find the perfect book to publish first!
Hi Madi! I don’t usually ask people to read my posts but I need your expert advice on my latest story, and I was wondering if you could check it out and critique writing quality wise? Thanks so much!! https://myhomeschoolnotebookblog.wordpress.com/2018/01/24/back-to-homeschool-first-day/
Hey Zielle! Awwww, that means so much you want my advice! You’re the sweetest. I read your story and loved it — would you like me to share my advice in a comment on your post, or right here, or email you?
It would be great if you could email me. 🙂 I don’t have a contact form, but I could email you and you could reply with your advice there? 🙂 Thank you so much! <3
Sure! Just email me and I’ll reply back (sorry it took me so long to reply to this).
That’s fine! I sent the email.
Hmm, I’m not seeing it — which email did you send it to?
Oh that’s probably because I sent it like last week or something. Hehe. I’ll send it again. 😉 I sent it from the email in your contact page.
Whew, sorry it took me forever! I finally sent you an email. XD
Hehe that’s okay! XD
SINCE WHEN DID THIS SITE EXIST
SINCE JANUARY 1, 2018.
Hi Madi, I can’t seem to be able to view your latest post (5 Tips for Never Running Out of Inspiration) although part of it appears in my Reader.
Sorry, I accidentally posted it. It’s not supposed to be posted until April 9th.
Ah I see. K, thanks then!!
I just found your blog through Clara & Co. I’m excited to read more!
Oh my goodness, thank you so much for coming over! I followed yours, too!
Totally following this blog. I am crazy about writing, and your posts look very interesting/helpful!
Thank you so much, Anna! I’m so happy you found it!
Hey, Madi. Just curious… How do you feel about pantsing in general? (I mean novels, okay, you should know that.) I’ve just made a last-minute decision to do some research on it. 🙂 Link me to some other non-pantsers if you know any.
Hey, Kirstyn, sorry I never saw this. My mentor is a pantser; that’s just how he works. If you write better when you discover the story as you go, then you may be a pantser. But if you lose sight of the big picture and end up with an unstructured, jumbled mess that will require many rewrites to be publishable, you may do better as an outliner. I like being purposeful with my book, and have a roadmap of where I’m going to be sure I’m making the absolute best it can be and that I don’t look up a discover a huge plot hole 25,000 words in. K.M. Weiland from helpingwritersbecomeauthors.com has pioneered the popularity of outlining and structuring and is the biggest non-pantser I can point you to!
Another thing I think is that some new writers who claim they are pantsers are really just impatient to go ahead and start drafting already. If a writer can honestly acknowledge that he works better discovering the story as he goes, then he should pants away! But if he is just impatient to start writing and really needs to put some time into planning the novel, he is most likely not a pantser and just impatient.
