Some News

Hey, everyone!

I have something to tell you, which I think may disappoint you, but I really hope you understand.

Today, I was working on typing one of my series (it hasn’t been revealed to anyone and I wasn’t sure when I would be starting it πŸ˜‰ ) and it was about elves and magic. While I was typing one of the parts where magic was involved, I got a really bad feeling inside, like a deep guilt. I wondered if it was wrong for me to be writing about magic, so I asked my mom how she felt about me writing about magic. She said it hadn’t bothered her, but that if I was feeling guilty for it, then I should pray about it. So I went in my room and prayed. Later me and my mom went shopping, and we talked about it a lot more. We talked about if God was sitting right here in the room with me, would I show Him my stories that had magic? No, because I know that God doesn’t like that stuff.

So, I have come to the decision to stop writing magic stories. Yes, this means my Frozen Fractals series is now discontinued. I am really sorry about that, but I need to do what I feel is right, and I need to listen to what God is telling me.

Don’t worry though! There are still so many more series to be done! I have probably written about 4 more pirate series which I’m SUPER excited for! Plus I have an Indian series planned, and me and my friend, Emma are going to write a series together! You don’t need magic to have a good story :)

I hope you all understand this and that you won’t be upset, although I do confess, I am disappointed about this, but I know that in time, I will feel really good for having listened to what God was telling me. I actually feel a lot better already! :)

Have a nice rest of your day!

  • Jaclynn, I totally support you in your decision! If you don’t feel right about writing about magic, then don’t do it. You will definitely feel better about not doing it then going on with what you were going to do. And I am sure your next photo stories will be great and very interesting. :)

  • Yes, a bit disappointing (I am a christian too) I understand though.

  • Hmmm,,,, my new series will have powers, not magic and I wad going to have the main character be a Christian. Your post is making me think though..

    • Oh, don’t let this make you stop writing your story! The only reason I stopped is because I felt a guilt, and that was God speaking to me. Don’t do it just because you feel like you have to because I am, make sure you do it for the right reasons :)
      ~Jaclynn~

  • I am really proud of your decision, Jaclynn! Anything that The Lord is telling you is right. And I am looking forward to the new photo story!

  • Aw, it’s fine Jaclynn! I totally understand – do what you feel what is right and what God would want you to do and you can’t go wrong. :) And series don’t have to have magic to be awesome and exciting! I can’t wait to see what you will come up with next! πŸ˜€

  • I completely understand Jaclynn, and I’ve had similar things happen to me.:) I think there’s a dividing line somewhere in stories about magic. I think that sometimes it’s alright, maybe when you’re not being too serious about it, but when a story starts becoming more seriously magical, then it’s going a little far.:) (That’s what I believe, because I’ve never really felt guilty about it when I am writing something lighthearted and fun, and not making magic a serious thing.:P) [And I’m not implying that you were taking magic too seriously or ‘going too far’, BTW;]

  • It is fine. :) Two of my friends aren’t allowed to read or write any stories with any magic in them at all, so I am pretty used to it.

  • If you don’t feel comfortable with writing magic then that’s fine, and completely understandable! I know a lot of Christians have problems with magic stories, I personally think it depends on the story, but you should never go against what you think God wants and doesn’t want you to do :)

    • Thank you so much! I don’t mind so much watching movies with magic in it like Frozen or LOTR or anything like that, it was just because I was the one writing about this whole magical world that I felt bad. πŸ˜‰
      Thanks for understanding!
      ~Jaclynn~

      • Yeah, I don’t mind either, but I try to keep my stories with magic more like a lighthearted magic, like LOTR (which I just started reading πŸ˜€ ) and the Hobbit.
        You’re welcome :)

  • So proud of young ladies that stand up for what they believe in… way to go… and God will reward you with something better.. hugs

  • I think that you made the right choice. I would be disappointed if you ignored God’s voice and I wouldn’t want to read the story. I think the Indian series sounds really fun! :) Just remember that if you do something because God wants you to, I’ll totally support it! :)

  • I think that’s very mature of you! I support your decision.
    Although I am a bit disappointed, I am excited for more series to come!

  • But I like magic stories…does this mean that you do not like Frozen now???!!!As you can see,I am not a christian.But I do agree with Christian Homeschooler on if you don’t feel right writing about it,then don’t.

    • I’m sorry, I just really need to listen to what God is telling me :)
      No, I still LOVE Frozen, and I will still watch movies with magic in them, I just felt really wrong for writing about magic. πŸ˜‰
      Well, I thank you for understanding :)
      ~Jaclynn~

  • It’s okay if you stopped writing about magic. It was the right decision to make, and everyone is still looking forward to the rest of your photo stories that you have planned. πŸ˜€

  • I understand. I think that a story about Indians sounds so cool!
    For a while my sister was really assessed w/Indians and all that stuff,
    So… Need any reference?, call me.;-) haha!
    Can’t wait for new stories!

  • I understand. Sometimes I’m watching something that isn’t particularly bad or dark but I can feel the Holy Spirit saying that it’s wrong. Just shutting the door on the bad thing feels better.

    Jaclynn, I am so stuck on coming up with a name for my business! I am planning on doing a craft fair booth next year but I can’t figure out a name. Any ideas?

    • Oh, yes, that happens to me, too! πŸ˜•

      Hmmm… Well what are you selling? That will probably help me think of a name better πŸ˜‰ :)
      ~Jaclynn~

      • I’m going to be selling mostly blankets and quilts, some hats and scarves, and hopefully more once I get better. :)

        • Also, I’m going to be making historical 18” cloth dolls, clothes, furniture and bedding. I love doll stuff and have been practicing making dolls.

          • Wow! That’s great, Amelia! πŸ˜€
            Hmmm…. Thinking up business names is always super hard……….. Ugh, I’m so sorry, I’ve been sitting here for a while trying to think of something, but nothing is coming to me. I’m really sorry I couldn’t help :(
            Good luck with your business! I will let you know if I think of something!
            ~Jaclynn~

  • thanks, if you think if something let me know. :) I’ve been thinking for about a month and still have no idea.

  • I totally support your decision, Jaclynn. Don’t feel bad!
    Honestly, I like the idea of a Native American series better!

  • I understand too!( I am a Christian) But about the Frozen Fractals series, I don’t think being born with powers is magic, i think it’s more of a super hero thing.

  • I love your pirate stories so I wont miss the magic!!

  • Hi, Jaclynn! I think if you believe God wants you to do this, you should! I know that a lot of Christians don’t do magic stuff and that’s fine.

  • I thinki show god my stories about magic. They aren’t bad. (I haven’t actually posted them yet.) do if you ever want to see a magical talking horse just drop by my blog… LOL. Awww fairies and elves……mini doll fairies…. Unicorn…. BRAINSTORM! Lol

    • What I mean is, I don’t feel like I should stop writing. There is one I’m actually changing. It was actually too much. I feel like God has made it clear that for me, fairies are ok. A bit of magic is ok. Just too much is wrong. But maybe I shouldn’t do my photostory called “magic Molly” that I’ve been planning…. No I think I will. I will….
      For you it must be different. God choses different things for different people. He must have reasons. πŸ˜‰ I like dramas about real life better.

  • Oh,I so understand Jaclynn!I can’t wait for more series!!!(I LOVE YOUR PIRATE SERIES!!!!!!)

  • Oh,btw,I will making a blog soon(like the end of this month!!!!!!!)and I was wondering if you could give me some advice?Thank you!

    • That is great that you’re starting a blog! I can’t wait to see it! πŸ˜€
      Here are a few tips for you :)
      1. Always be yourself
      2. Make friends!
      3. Have good quality photos
      4. Make sure to always re-read through your posts before you post them. Fix any typos you may have seen :)

      I hope this helps you! Good luck! :)
      ~Jaclynn~

  • Totally understand. I had thoughts about this with my Mines of Malaysia series and stuff. I don’t really write about magic anymore, but I don’t feel strongly convicted about it or anything. If I do ever want to write a series or do stopmotions or stuff about magic, I’ll ask my dad and definitely pray so I’ll know if it’s right with God. Everyone has different thoughts about this and what feels right to them concerning magic and stuff, so I’m glad you listened to what you felt God was leading you to do. <3

  • As much as I miss Frozen Fractals, I respect your desicion and can’t wait for a new series. :)

  • Wow i never thought about that……..Thanks for helping me.That is so amazing.That you would give up writing like that.Wow inspiring.thanks so much.-Sophia

    • Awe, thank YOU! When I read this comment, it really brought a smile to my face :)
      And you’re welcome. I’m glad it was inspiring for you :)
      ~Jaclynn~

  • I respect that you are listening to God and what He wants you to do but I am disappointed that the series has been discontinued. I do not feel that God would be upset with you for this but again I respect your wishes to stop for religious reasons. I cannot wait for the next pirate series!
