Hello. It’s Me.

Hi, friends

*waves nervously* πŸ‘‹πŸΌ

I’ve been MIA lately. πŸ™„ *thank you captain obvious*

It’s been a lengthier hiatus than I planned – actually I didn’t plan it at all. Things have just been going on in my life lately that have been making it difficult to juggle everything, but I’ve gotten some things under control. I think. I hope.

I don’t want to go into too much detail. But it was a dark period & I want you all to know that I’ve seen your comments and your words of support have meant a lot to me. Thank you. From the bottom of my heart!

Most of the last few weeks have been spent preparing to enter Pirate Eyes in #PitchWars. I tried out last year, but didn’t make it. Since then, she’s gone through three more editing phases, plus been read by my sister. I’ve also circulated the first chapter and I’ve gotten really positive feedback, so my ego is stoked and I’m trying my luck a second time before attempting to query her to a few more agents.

My submission went through yesterday and now the wait begins!

Otherwise, I’ve been editing through Heralding the sequel to my debut urban fantasy novella, ElΓ©onore. At this rate, I’m confident she’ll be publishing fall 2017, so keep an eye out and an ear open.

I’ve also been working on a few side projects side projects. One is an adult fairy tale adaptation, two are secrets πŸ™Š, one is a family drama screenplay, and one is a YA paranormal historical novella. But these are projects that I only work on when I have the extra time.

The only other WIP that has my attention is Hollow Vows, the sequel to Pirate Eyes. I participated in CampNaNoWriMo in July and passed my 30k goal (hit 33k).

Aside from writing, I’ve been preparing a few blog series that I really hope to commit to. One focuses on lessons I’ve learned as a writer from books I’ve read. I also intend to dive into the Crafting the Series series. I’m re-imagining my blog a bit, really trying to focus on what it is I want to offer people. Primarily, it’s about one writer helping other writers, but it’s also about sharing my love of books and stories, so I’m really going to center myself that way and try to be more disciplined in how I accomplish it.

Hoping that this month will be a good step forward.

Let me know what you’ve been up to, dearest friends. Share your happiest moments or your troubles. I’m here to talk again. So let’s catch up 😊


 

May inspiration flow like ink upon your quill,

Faith quill-ink

  2. I’m glad you’ve reached a stable place now, Faith. Hope you’re doing okay! πŸ™‚ My life has undergone a tremendous change too and I’ve fallen off the commenting wagon. I’m trying my best to get back to my schedule in August, so here’s to hoping you keep posting and I keep my end of the bargain by reading and commenting. πŸ™‚
    That’s quite a lot of projects to be working on! Congrats on your successful participation in Camp NaNo! πŸ™‚ Mine was disastrous (0/5k) and I’m not sure when I’ll start writing again. Hope your manuscript does well in the #PitchWars πŸ™‚

  3. Hey Faith, glad to see you back here. I am trying to get myself back into regular habits this month, having fallen off several bandwagons in July. I continue to be impressed and inspired by your drive and progress. Good luck with #PitchWars and with getting Heralding out there. Let me know when you’re doing a cover reveal and that sort of thing – always happy to pitch in for author friends!

    (Also I am appreciating your GIF choices. I miss Eleven.)

  4. I’ve been more active on social media versus blogging. But my personal life has been stressful too. I’m glad you’re feeling better and getting things more organized. That’s definitely helpful! I hope to see more posts from you, and to catch you on Twiter. Much love to you friend.

  5. FAITH!! (*runs over and gives her a hug*)

    I’m sorry that life offline has been trying lately. Believe me, I know the feeling. But I’m glad that you’re still finding time to write and be creative. Hopefully those projects have helped you through everything that’s been going on in your personal life. I know my WIP has been doing that for me lately…

    Looking forward to whatever new posts you have in store for us, whenever they’re ready.

      1. Eh… let’s just say I’m counting down the days to NYC. The magic number is now NINE. πŸ™‚

        I’m working on a new WIP that I had mentioned in my Spring Creativity Corner post. I’ll give a brief update of it come time for the Summer Creativity Corner post, which should come out sometime in September. πŸ˜‰
