Welcome to Hanna-col Writes!

This is Me.

My name is Hanna-col. I am a homeschool graduate, a child of God, a bibliophile, a writer, a film junkie, a coffee addict, and a lover of song. I have been gluten-free since 2009. I suffer acutely from a deep desire to be a globetrotter and art museums are among some of my favorite places in the world.

I fell in love with writing when I was seven. I have dreamed of being a novelist ever since. Historical fiction will always be my lifelong passion, but I dabble in other storytelling realms as well.

Hanna-col Writes

This blog originally started out as Ain't We Got Fun, a place for me to participate in blog events. Now, four years later, I have changed the name and look to better represent who I am today.

My goal for Hanna-col Writes is not only to share my writing and reading journey, but to connect with like minded Christians who also have a passion for storytelling.

Write. Read. Watch. Think.

I hope to share snippets from my own writing and writing inspiration.

I hope to share book reviews and the bibliophile life.

I hope to include the occasional film review, mainly focusing on films ranging from silent movies to the 1960s, and generally letting my classic film junkie side loose once in while.

I hope to share my take and thoughts on writing, books, and film. Not just surface stuff, I want to dig a little deeper.

Please, don't be shy, introduce yourself and let's get the conversations started!


  1. Hello! I just wanted to take the time to tell you your blog is absolutely beautiful and your book reviews are exemplary, so I will definitely be following you. And I happen to love typewriters and classic cinema as well :D


  2. I just found your blog through goodreads and man, this is beautiful! Glad to have found it. I love your design. I, too, am (well, /almost.../ next year I'll be) a homeschool graduate) ;)

  3. Hey girl, since you love writing just wanted to let you know that we're looking for writers for our e-magazine. :) The theme for 2018 is "A Girl's Guide to Life." Hope you check out more details at www.skgfun.com! Or feel free to send me a note via the contact us page. If you aren't looking for a long term thing I'd love to have you as a guest blogger. Let me know what you think!


Thank you for taking the time to comment! I really do appreciate it. I do have a few requests or rules: no profanity (let's keep things PG, people), no spam, and please keep your words kind. "If you can't say something nice, do not say anything at all." — Thumper in Bambi (1942)
