Welcome to Scribes & Archers! I’m Ariel, and I’m a Christian homeschool graduate with a dream to become a best-selling indie author (or something like that). I’ve been writing for about twelve years now, blogging consistently for three years, and reading for as long as I can remember. If you need a heap of new book recommendations, come talk to me! It’s quite likely I’ve read something that’ll fit whatever you’re looking for.

With this blog I try to help out my fellow young writers by providing practical, easy-to-use tips on character development, worldbuilding, and other parts of the craft. I also share about my own writing, which is primarily fantasy. I frequently work on multiple projects at once, and you can read about my main works-in-progress here.

I post once a week: writing tips on first and second (and sometimes third) Tuesdays; book reviews on third (or sometimes fourth) Tuesdays; and monthly updates on my writing projects, reading, etc. on last Tuesdays. If you’d like to get updates whenever I post something new, you can enter your email there to the right and subscribe.
