me and a friend (photo credit ava of quiet land)
Welcome, my friend!  My name is Sophia Noelle, but I traipse about as a writer under the nom de plume of Miss E. Finch.  I am a free-spirited novelist who hopes to one day become a published author.  I mainly write historical fiction romances, but once in a while you can find me writing fantasy.  I have been writing books for seven years.  Psst! . . . I also blog over at Lantern in Her Hand.

My mission statement - 
Ever since I was a little girl, I have admired writers who have the skill of capturing life on paper. Not just a story, but life and real feelings. I think that to be able to put life down on paper is an incredible talent -- something I hope to do with my writing. Why? Mainly because books are so important; not many people realize how much the books they read effect them and their decisions. If you really think about it, you'll see how many of the choices you make and the things you say are influenced by the books you have read and the life stories you have experienced in book-form. 
My ambitious writing goal is why I am blogging here to share with you the importance of being yourself and sharing what really matters to you in your novel.  As a writer I want to be able to write something that will change the reader's mind or to make them think about something differently.  I don't want to just write books or novels, but I want to weave life's golden threads into story-form for others to experience.  The world is at your fingertips just waiting for you to reach out and use it to your advantage; you need only listen and you shall hear, only speak and you shall be heard. I keep telling myself that there has to be a way -- there must be a way.  My advice to you are to never give up even when the road gets tough.  And to never ignore a possible as said in the book Rooftoppers by Katherine Rundell.

Please join me on this journey by following my blog, The Inkpot Girl.  
Or want to say hello?  I'd love to hear from you with your thoughts on my blog and writing (or anything else too). :)  If you need writerly advice from a writer pal, feel free to contact me as well.  You can always get ahold of me at parshall202@gmail.com.
