The Sea Forest

Marian watched the endless trees in front of her with emotionless eyes. The birds flew from one ocean tree to another and chirped incessantly. Almost fourteen years ago, something catastrophic happened. One day, all of a sudden, the ocean had turned to a forest. But, in odd ways, it was still an ocean. The trees, […]

Kellen and the Dragon

Sixteen years ago today, I set out on a journey to defeat the dragon. I was so young at seventeen. Full of spirit and thirst for adventure, which is how I ended up out here. I found the dragon, but he was nothing like I expected. I have documented him well in my previous entries, […]

This Is Me

Hello. My name is Laura Hammer, and this is my very first blog post. I think it is fitting for it to be an introduction to me. Well, who am I? I am a seventeen-year-old writer, reader, fangirl, Fall lover, essential oil user, movie, music, Goldfish, and sweets lover. There is much more to me […]
