N is for Narnia


 Narnia, oh I wish I had a wardrobe and I could slip into Narnia whenever I wanted.  (Even though I know it doesn't quite work like that.)

Narnia is a mythical land with dwarves, talking beavers, fawns, centaurs, minotaurs, and many other creatures.  It exists inside of the wardrobe, which the four Penvensie children venture into.  Created by C.S. Lewis, Naria is a beautiful land with mystery and joy, but also with evil.  In the first story, the children have to defeat the White Witch and banish the 100 year winter from Narnia.  And I hate four months of winter, I can't imagine 100 years of snow and no Christmas.  Yuk.

Such a beautiful place.

This is the closest I've gotten.  I found a lamppost in Disney World in 2008, but no wardrobe.  Darn.


If you had the chance, would you live in Narnia as a king or queen?  Personally, I'd love to meet Mr. Tumnus. :)

I wrote 162 words.  Yep, super lame.  I'm stuck.  And I'm deep in the week three trenches.  I wanna be finished with this book.  I still love it, but I'm having trouble with it and my MC, Lainey is being incredibly stubborn right now.  Hopefully, I can get some writing done soon.

  1. I'd love to go to Narnia! The idea of a magical gateway between worlds has always appealed to me.

  3. I wouldn't mind visiting. Not sure if I'd want to be a queen though.

    1. Queen would be intense, but visiting would be very nice especially since time doesn't pass in the same way!

  4. Narnia is one of the few fantasy worlds I'd really LOVE to visit. Count me in if you start an expedition!

  5. Good luck with Nano! You are a hard working girl to be doing that and A to Z!
    I love Narnia. Whenever I read C.S. Lewis I want to go write about magical things. :)

  7. 162 words is NOT super-lame! Every word you write is progress. That's 162 words you didn't have at the beginning of the day.

    You're doing a fantastic job, and you're WAY ahead of schedule. There's still half the month left, and you have less than 10,000 words to go. You can do it! :-)

  8. I liked the beavers because they were so friendly and funny.

  9. Would I live in Narnia? Maybe . . . I'd miss this world if I did, though. I loved the way the series showed the character's growth from their experiences.

  10. Going through that wardrobe was an amazing image that just seems to hook everyone in!

  11. Seems sometimes like it would be nice to get away into a wardrobe.. But then I kindof remember that I like it here and it would be sad to leave this world behind!
