Down In FLAMES

How many films based upon a book have you seen that actually met your expectations? For most, I know, it is a very lonely few. Why do directors keep making the same mistakes, over and over again? Sometimes, I have to wonder if they even bothered to crack open the book. It’s like they read …

About Linds McDonald

Hello, there! There is not much to know about me, really, except that I am an aspiring writer. I am currently working on two projects. First, and foremost, I have been working away on my novel, currently titled "As Clay". My great-grandparents came to America from Ireland in the 1900s, and my strong Irish heritage has always interested me. "As Clay" is a fantastical but Christian tale of Irish history, and I hope, the first in a trilogy. (Planned titles are: "As Clay", "Burning", and "Vessel".)

Isaiah 64:8 Yet you, LORD, are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand. 2 Corinthians 4:7 But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us.
My less serious, but possibly more engrossing, project that I have been working on is, I am a little abashed to say, a fan fiction for Harry Potter. I know that it sounds completely juvenile, lol. But it is great fun, and a very productive learning experience. It's titled "Still I Rise" and is inspired by Maya Angelou's poem of the same name. http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8387697/1/Still-I-Rise

Let Freedom Ring

Despite all of my hang-ups concerning this great country, America, I have to admit that there is much to be thankful for. We live in the land of the free, in the home of the brave, and in the land of opportunity. (Do not worry, I am done with clichés. For now.) Our heritage is …

What’s The Real Issue

So there is nation, no worldwide attention and uproar because multitalented cookbook author and tv personality Paula Deen made some “racist” remarks and has now resulted in her termination from Food Network & outside sponsors. I for one have several points of view on the issue; some of which may not be liked, while others …

Seven Million

What if I told you that worldwide, almost nine hundred million people live in total and complete poverty? It’s alarming how close that number is to a billion. Even more alarming, is that countless individuals with the means and ends to help, have done nothing. I know. If you are anything like me, you are …
