Hey! Happy New Year! You might know me from my two other blogs, Delightful World of Dolls and Madi Grace, but I’m Madi: professional blogger, minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and writer. My full bio page is here.
After making some clarity changes to my lifestyle blog Madi Grace, I realize that the two subjects I posted on—undefeated lifestyle and undefeated writing (as well as WIP updates)—were just too different to maintain a stable audience and then grow it.
So I branched out again, much to my schedule’s chagrin.
Welcome to Madison Grace: my writing blog.
Madison Grace is my pseudonym (I would’ve used my first and last names Madison Lorfing, but I plan on getting married).
On Madison Grace, you’ll see solid, real, no-excuses, moral writing advice and tips I’ve learned over the years, frequent updates about writing my historical epic series Warfare, and my journey of becoming an author. (Not quite there yet. Don’t be mislead by the title. XD)
I’m so glad you dropped by and I hope you enjoy your stay!
No, seriously, stay. This little guy is begging for you to click him.
Looks like he didn’t get the center alignment memo, though.
P.S. I now have three different accounts I go by on the web. That might be kind of confusing. But don’t worry! The following people are all me.
Hi, this is a comment.

I’ve been blogging for over five years. I think I’ve got that down. XD
That is hilarious! XD
Thank you! ?
What do I have to say? WHAT DO I HAVE TO SAY? I have too much to say to fit into this tiny comment box!
That is so weird. Your comment works, but it’s not letting me comment! ? Well, I can reply to comments from inside WP, but I can’t… comment regularly. *pouty-face-emoji*
How EVIL. Also, I think female authors who change their last names still use their maiden name for writing stuff. *shrugs* HEHE WRITING POSTS AND I GET EARLY ACCESSSSS. >:D At least I usually do. At least I better.
Oh, really? That sounds immensely confusing. ?
AHAHA HOW DID YOU KNOW. >:) Well, not so much early access as it is forced early access, but who’s keeping track? >:D
I think so XD
Forced early access, but I’m giving you forced suggestions that you MUST TAKE just kidding (mostly).
My dad says Madison Grace sounds mysterious, but I’m worried publishers aren’t gonna take it seriously. ?
Well, luckily for me I like your suggestions. >:)
Ooh XD The problem might not be with it sounding un-serious but with it being common \_(‘. ‘)_/
One moment. My phone shut itself off.
Gasp. Do you know anyone else with the name Madison Grace?
Madison and Grace are common I guess? XD
I’ve always wanted to name my future daughter Madison Grace (Madi G for short XD)
Oh my gosh, really? XDD
AHHHHHHH IT’S AWESOME *dies*
AHHH THANK YOU SO MUCH!!
YOU IS WELCOME IT’S BEAUTIMOUS *dies again*
HEHEHEHE YAY TY SO MUCH
AHHHHH!!!! I can’t wait to read more of your posts! I subscribed!
– Katie 🙂
AHHH YAY!! Thank you SO much, Katie!
Oh…I don’t know what to say! It’s epic. It’s just epicly incredible.
Awww, thank you, Enni!
I can’t wait to write undefeated! Reading your blog makes me feel so like bold I don’t know what it is. Your boldness is contagious!
Awwww, that means so much to me!! Thank you SO much, Zella! <3
Whoop Whoop! This is so awesome Madi! I followed!
YAY, thank you so much, Jewel!!
I am so excited! I followed (of course!!), and I am eager to read up on your amazing writing, and to be further inspired by your diligence and epic advice!
Just amazing… 😀
Awww, YAY! Thank you so much, Kendall! I’m so excited! 😀
Congratulations, Madi! It looks awesome.
Thank you sooo much, Amie!
*rushes in breathless* I am here. I have come. Now I shall follow. *bows low*
*applauds heartily* Thank you, thank you. Your presence is much valued.
Your new blog is so cool! 😀
Thank you so much! 😀
This stupid i-pad isn’t letting me like anything. Hmmfff. I guess I’ll just have to like it all on my laptop later. ?
Most crazily, ~Olive
How evil. BUT THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR WANTING TO LIKE THINGS. I love it when people like things even if they don’t comment. XD
THIS IS SO EXCITING! AND I LOVE THE DESIGN!
AHH THANK YOU SO MUCH!
Whoop whoop whoop whoopity whoop! Okay now I’m sold sold on this idea! Your theme is so dignified. It’s making me jelly. I can’t wait to hear all about your awesome writing.
Now here’s me asking for advice. I’m not sorry.
What do you do if you think your story idea is awesome, but when you try to share it, people think it’s lame? When I make up stories, I tell them to my older brothers asking for criticism. And ideas for an ending 😛 One of them tolerates my cringiness, but the other has no problems with saying that he thinks my story is lame. He isn’t trying to be mean, but it makes me lose confidence in a story I love and think is cool. How do I keep faithful to my stories and confident in my ability to make stuff up while still getting good advice?
Ahhh thank you so much Tess! I’m so glad you like it. Hehe, I can’t wait to start posting.
HEHE I LOVE GIVING ADVICE, EVEN WHEN PEOPLE DON’T ASK. >:)
1. I’d get a variety of opinions. If you’re only asking your brothers and they each give the same kind of advice–one tolerates what he doesn’t like, one criticizes it–try branching out and getting other people’s opinions so you have a nice variety.
2. It might just be your brother’s taste. It’s not his story–it’s *yours*. Getting opinions is always awesome, but it is always ultimately your story. He just might not be as crazy about your ideas as you are.
3. If he thinks it’s lame, ask him to refine his advice so it doesn’t hurt your confidence in your ability to make up awesomeness. How does he think you could make it better (instead of just deeming it lame for all eternity)? Stories can always be improved, and his ideas might spark plot twists you’ve never thought of.
4. You could always do what I do and be a self-conceited narcissist. Don’t put into any stock into anyone’s negative opinions and keep believing your story is the best in the world.
5. I’m… partly kidding about number 4.
Only partly. >:)
I’m copying and pasting this advice into my writerapp. I’m going to save it forever because this is just what I needed! Like I would say especially number whatever, but they’re all good! I’m soooooo grateful for this 🙂 I’m going to branch out to my blogfriends for advice too! Thanks so much! 😀
AWWW! That means so much! I’m so glad you liked it! <3
Blogfriends are SO awesome for advice. I rarely ask for advice from real-life sources. XDD
IKR? I don’t even have any IRL friends. Just blogfriends. 😉
I think blogfriends are better than most IRL friends. 😉
Right? They’re the greatest.
I love it! Particularly ‘creating excellent moral fiction’, because that’s one of the things my family believes very strongly: clean, moral media, not just rehashings of trendy Christianity. 🙂 Also the site is so amazingly designed!
Thanks, Daisy! Argh, exactly. Christian media should be clean and moral, but it should also be AMAZING, not cheesy!
Thank you so much! It’s the same design I use for DWOD and MG, but I did change it up a bit. >:)
So, this is the writing blog. I love it! It’s really cool that you have an author’s site now.
Aww, thank you SO much, Rose!
Why, hello there.
Oh my word this is so exciting!!! I’m SUPER excited to see your posts! You are a great writer and I always get something from your writing tips! Happy new year!

I’m cheering you on!
You’re very welcome! ?
