UPCOMING REVEALS, GOODREADS GIVEAWAY, NANOWRIMO & MORE

Hi friends,

Hope you’re all doing well!

I’m checking in today with a quick update as to where I am with my writing & other such progresses.

The Iníonaofa Chronicles:

As you may already know, the release day for Heralding is set for December 4th 2017! The blurb and cover reveal are set for this Friday. If any of my fellow bloggers would like to help share the news on Friday, click the link below to sign-up and I’ll send you email instructions by Tuesday 🙂

BLOGGERS UNITE

Everything is on track for publication and I’ll also be announcing a call for ARC readers on Friday, so eyes open friends! The time is approaching!

Also, I’m running a giveaway for a signed paperback of Eléonore (only for UK, US & Canada)! Here’s the LINK!!

You have until November 1st! Good luck 🙂

NaNoWriMo 2017:

Those of you who’ve been following me for a while, might remember that I last NaNo I had started writing a project called The Desert Knight. i stopped working on it the day I hit 50k, and I haven’t touched it since.

But this November, I intend to finish it. There should be a good 50k left in it. And if I finish my narrative with less than 50k, I have plenty of other projects to fill the space up with 🙂

Other WIPs

In case you’re interested 😉

Heritage: I had to put it on hold recently, but I’ll be working on it on and off for the rest of the year, slowly converting it for an MG audience.

Destinies Entwined: My fairy tale adaptation. I’ve begun writing it by hand again but haven’t had a chance to type it up yet! I think I’ve written a good 5k-8k this month.

TPS (Novella): A Victorian gothic with ghosts, I finally finished outlining it and hope to write it in December. I am really excited for this one, friends!

New Blog Series

I am starting a new series here called, Reading the Craft which is all about lessons I learn about writing through the books I read. The first one I’m working on is Mastering the Middle Grade. I read alot of MG novels last month to prepare for fixing up Heritage and the patterns are incredible. I have quite a bit to say on character arcs and plot structure and theme, but is there something else you’d be interested in: i.e. worldbuilding, prose, specific plot points?

Let me know 🙂



Hope you’ve all had an amazing weekend! Any exciting news you’d like to share? Any good books to recommend?

May inspiration flow like ink upon your quill,

Faith     quill-ink

AN UPDATE (LATER THAN BETTER BUT AT LEAST NOT NEVER)

Happy Wednesday friends,

Where have I been?

Not even sure how long it’s been since my last post… I’m a little afraid to look…

*peers over folded hands*

CRIKEY!! Surely not!?

And yet the truth is the truth friends. It’s been 18 days since my last post. In my defense, this has been a really difficult month for me in my own personal life and I’ve just been overwhelmed with work and family issues and trying to balance writing on the side.

The struggles of a writer, am I right?

I don’t want to make any promises and say I’ll be back at more regular intervals moving forward because I know what’s coming up and I know it’s going to be difficult to balance. Some people are really amazing at being able to pull it all off, but my head hasn’t been in the game lately and this blog is what’s taking the beating as they say.

But I’m not going to hold that against myself. I’ve been making some progress in writing and reading despite the turmoil and that’s what I’m coming to share with you today….

MY WRITING LIFE

I finished my edits of Heritage earlier this month and the manuscript is now in my sister’s hands. She’s always my first reader when it comes to my novels. In Stephen King’s On Writing, he mentions how his wife, Tabitha, is his IDEAL READER. Well, that’s my sister to me and what she says is what I always depend on. Can’t wait to get her thoughts before moving forward with it.

My main focus this month, though, is Pirate Eyes and I’m about a third of the way through edits and she is sparkling like a diamond in my eyes. I haven’t touched her since last year and coming back to her is a joy. I’ve cut words like there’s no tomorrow; I’m actually really excited to see how many words the MS will have dropped by the end of this edit. An edit which is bound to be my last before betas. I’ll talk more about that at the end of the month….

In other news, I was struck by the idea bug last month and started to outline a new novel except the bug is really bad and I’ve started to pants it, which is a rare thing for me to do, but inspiration has struck hard and fast and I’m rather in love with where this story is going. All I’ll say for the moment is that it’s a fairy tale adaptation because there obviously aren’t enough of those, but I’m blending in some mythology with it and I actually think it’s kind of beautiful…

My lack of humility today astounds me ;P

 MY READING LIFE

I’m doing fairly well with my reading this month. I haven’t participated in a WWW Wednesday in a long time – maybe next week – so I thought I’d share a quick glimpse at what I’ve been reading…

  • Stolen Ink by Holly Evans – 4 stars – the first in a new series, I love how the magical system is based in tattoos and ink.
  • Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon – 4 stars – I very rarely read anything contemporary and even more rare is my choice to read a YA one, but with the movie coming out and it being directed by a Canadian woman (NATIONAL PRIDE) I figured I should read the book. Really glad I did!
  • The Drowned Tomb by James Fahy – 5 stars – the second in the Changeling Series, these books remind me of The Chronicles of Narnia and The Lord of the Rings with a beautifully realized mythology, resonating characters, and stellar worldbuilding!
  • On Writing by Stephen King – 5 stars – people have always said and now I understand it: All writers must read this book! It is gloriously inspirational and relatable and focuses less on structure and more on craft! Plus it’s a brilliant memoir.
  • A Shining in the Shadows by Beverley Lee – 5 stars – the second in the Gabriel Davenport series, Beverley is a master storyteller and this is a gem of dark fantasy with memorable characters and a gripping plot
  • The Shadowy Horses – 4 stars – by Susanna Kearsley – the third of Kearsley’s books that I’ve read this year in my goal to read through her entire works and I loved the setting and the romance in this one. A bit of a slower plot, but the historical time that our protagonist is exploring is one that highly intrigues me. The Ninth Roman Legion is one of those mysteries…

At the moment I’m currently reading a chapter of Women Who Run with Wolves by Clarissa Pinkola Estés, which is going to be a book I will return to time and time again, I can tell because it resonates with me on so many levels and it delves into myths and fairy tales in a new light.

I’m also reading The Dark Tower by Stephen King, the last book in the series, and I don’t really think I’m ready for it to end. My nails are not handling it well at all…


That’s about all I wanted to share with you today, friends. I hope that you’re all doing well. My plan this weekend (on top of reading and writing) is to catch up on your posts. I hate falling behind on your blogs. I apologize for any spamming that might occur because of it.

Stay well ❤

And let me know in the comments how your month has been going and what your plans for the weekend are! Let’s catch up because I’m tired of falling behind ❤

May inspiration flow like ink upon your quill,

This Week in Review | 27.02.17 – 06.03.17

Happy Monday Friends,

I’m glad to be back with  TWiR after awhile without posts. But first, an apology:

I’ve been struggling a little lately with balancing life and my writing and my social media feeds, but I think this week things might start looking up. I’ve already started catching up on comments and posts that I’ve let slip away from me and I should be up to date today and I’ll be sure to try to keep up with them more consistently going forward!

That being said, let’s take a look at what I’ve been able to accomplish this week!

Game of Shadows Review

This Month in Review

My Writing Projects

For the first time in a while, I’ve actually made decent progress on two of my projects. I’ve changed mentalities since February, making sure to prioritize my writing, which hadn’t been the case at all last month.

I’ve set goals for each week in March to help me accomplish my monthly goals. For HERALDING, the first full length novel in the Iníonaofa Chronicles, I’ve set a writing word count of 15k for Wednesday, March 8th — the MS word count stands at 34k. Right now I’m sitting on just a little over 11k of words written since March 1st. Which means that all I need to do is write 2k a day to get there. Absolutely feasible!

91f5138b-5bb7-4499-b81c-f96e4af09122.gif

Some of you might have seen that I submitted HERITAGE, my 2015 NaNoWriMo novel, to #PitchMadness at the end of February. Well, the choices were made yesterday and I wasn’t one of them. But that’s okay. There were 60 of 1300 that went on to the agent round, and the judges remarked that over 300 made it into the first round ‘love’ pile. Those names weren’t released, but who knows, I might have been one of them — I like to think I was 😉

In any case, I’m editing through Heritage right now. This is the second draft I’m working with. My goal is to get halfway through the MS by Wednesday. This one’s a bit lofty and I’m ready to not make it. So far, one of the biggest change involved combining two chapters that were far too similar and moving up the action, which is always better.When I started, my MS was 84,856 words in length. I’ve cut 413 words in the first eleven chapters. And I’m pleased with the pacing so far. But I’ll definitely be looking for beta readers come the end of the month.

77450083-a0db-48ff-9bbb-0f8ade986d5a.gif

So if anyone’s interested in a YA fantasy novel about a timid fiddler who embarks on an adventure with her grandmother to destroy the rising Shadows threatening to steal the light and happiness from their homeland, let me know 😉

EXCERPTS

I thought I’d share a small excerpt for each of my WIPs from what I’ve written/edited recently:

HERALDING  –  a bit of dialogue between two characters that I’m rather fond of

“I already told him to go.”
“Obviously, he didn’t listen.”
“Obviously, I have no sway over him.”
“Obviously, you didn’t try hard enough. He likes sex with you. You should use that.”

HERITAGE –  perfecting Peggie’s voice is one of the highlights of this novel for me.

My bow descended with a far more spritely attitude than it had before, evoking a light-hearted melody that honoured the night and the white light that graced the land of Adramache. Images of couples dancing and children laughing played through my mind. Happiness, joy, hope: those were the emotions that guided the song. The moon gifted me with them, and I could do little else but bring them to life through my fiddle’s wooden form, expressing through music what I saw inside. Without words, the moon sent me inspiration and I heeded his creative call.


Well, that’s it from me. Let me know how your week has been friends! Any accomplishments? Any happy occurrences? Anything you’re struggling with? Here’s a safe space. So feel free to share 🙂

May inspiration flow like ink upon your quill,

This Month in Review | February 2017

Happy Wednesday friends!

Today begins a new month and I don’t know about you, but I’m personally relieved that February is being left behind. It was a difficult one on my end and I’m hoping that March proves a more productive month and a happier one.


GOALS OF FEBRUARY

  1. Read 5-6 books
  2. Watch 4 movies
  3. Read 1 nonfiction
  4. Write first draft of Eléonore‘s sequel
  5. Write high fantasy screenplay to first draft
  6. Edit family drama screenplay to final draft
  7. Edit Pirate Eyes to beta draft
  8. Learn to play the violin

ACHIEVED IN FEBRUARY

  1. Read 10 books! If you check out my WWW Wednesday posts, you’ll be able to find out more, but I’ll share here my top read with you: A CONJURING OF LIGHT!!! …… Bet you didn’t see that coming 😉
  2. Watched 6 movies! Lost in Translation – The Royal Tenenbaums – Inside Out – O Brother, Where Are Thou? – Hidden Figures – Bridget Jones’ Diary. I was going to rank them, but honestly I loved them all. If I had to choose a favourite, though, it would have to be LOST IN TRANSLATION
  3. I actually managed to finish Under the Black Flag from last month and read Big Magic  as well!
  4. Well, Heralding was at least started… I’m sitting on 23,000 words right now, which is decent, but definitely not where I wanted to be…
  5. I got to 20 pages. Which is deplorable. We’re not going to talk about it.
  6. Didn’t even touch it.
  7. Didn’t even touch it.
  8. Oh hey, didn’t even touch it ;P

Don’t we love how accomplished I was this month!

MARCH GOALS

  1. Read 4-5 books.
  2. Read 1 nonfiction
  3. Watch 5 movies (I’m upping the challenge this month)
  4. Polish draft of Heritage (my 2015 NaNoWriMo which is currently entered in #PitchMadness and I’m just making sure she’s absolutely ready for agents round — in case I make it to that round)
  5. Polish draft of The Glass Slippers (there are quite a few script competitions coming up and I really want to have this Cinderella adaptation ready to circulate!)
  6. Finish first draft of Heralding (if I crank out about 15k a week, I should be there – it’ll put her above 80k and right now that seems like a good length for a first draft)
  7. Practice the violin – I’m serious about this one this month and I’ve set time for practice!
  8. Start final edits on Pirate Eyes – because she needs to be in at least an agent’s hand before this year is done!

A little less ambitious than last month I think ;P How was February for you, friends? What did you accomplish? What are your goals and plans for March?

May inspiration flow like ink upon your quill,

This Week in Review | 2017 the 2nd

Dear friends,

I hope you’ve all had a lovely week and a wonderful weekend!

Here’s just a quick look at what’s been keeping me busy! I`m keeping it really short, only because most of my week was consumed by work, my mom’s birthday, beta reading, critiquing and Sherlock! 😉


Eléonore Giveaway Winners

My giveaway for a signed copy of Eléonore ended on Friady, and I picked not one but TWO winners. Congratulations again to China and Sara! Two very talented writers in their own right!

My Writing Projects

This week, my focus has been squarely placed on Heritage, my 2015 NaNoWriMo novel about a young girl, Peggie, who embarks on a grand adventure with her grandmother! It’s a YA fantasy story and I’m kind of in love with it ❤ I’m nearly done editing this first draft! I should be done in an hour or two and then I’ll set her aside until next month or March to edit the second draft. My plan is to have her in a publisher’s hand before year end! We’ll see how that goes.

Here’s a small excerpt:

The moon beckoned me to the window and I heeded its call, my fiddle held close to my chest.

Pressing myself against the glass, I stared up at the luminous orb and waited for it to inspire within me a song. It was not long before it came.

I raised my fiddle to rest against my shoulder, my chin cradling it, to keep it secure in place. Then, I bade her to sing.

Back and forth, I drew my bow against the strings in a swaying motion. With ease, they obeyed me, uttering a subdued tone that echoed through my small room.

A hymn of solemn remembrance, it was not the song I had anticipated, but it was the one in my heart.

Faith’s Fiddling Fridays | The First

Happy Friday everyone!

So today begins a new series of post that I’m calling Faith’s Fiddle Friday! And it’s something I’m rather excited about.

In a recent post, I mentioned that I impulsively bought a violin in that after months–perhaps years–of saying that I wanted to learn to play, I finally decided to make it happen and ordered a violin. My biggest motivation was from my NaNoWriMo novel: Heritage. Peggie, my MC, is a fiddler and I really want to bring a realism to her art.

That was well over a month ago and if I’m to be honest, it really hasn’t seen much light since then. The reason for it. Well, firstly I haven’t made the time. I’ve had a lot on my plate lately, and I haven’t been able to fit it into my schedule.

The other reason? Well, a few days after I bought it, I broke a string trying to tune it. Yep. It was a rather bizarre moment when, as I was turning the knob to find the right pitch on my D-string, I could feel it tightening and just knew that too much would snap it. And yet I turned it that one more time anyway and —

SNAP!

So what happened? Well, that big and ugly ‘S’ word: I got scared. I was suddenly faced with an obstacle. Not only was I struggling to tune my violin, but I was now faced with the added task of having to restring said violin. And I was afraid of the task and decided that I didn’t want to deal with the stress of it and so I placed it in its case and left it there. Until this past Sunday.

I don’t know what inspired me. I think it was a need to accomplish something. And so, with a sense of determination, I took a new D string and my violin and pulled up a few YouTube videos and after half an hour, I had this…

IMG_0363.JPG

That’s right! I restrung my violin all on my own. And not just that. I also managed to tune it! And after that, I was in love. I continued to watch some videos and learned how to properly hold both my violin and my bow!

 

IMG_0364.JPG    IMG_0365.JPG

It was a great two hours of learning basics and making noise that just barely resembled the sound a violin should make. It was a start, and I expect it will be a long journey to where I want to go, but I’m ready for it 😀

And so I invite you to follow me along the path of learning.

May inspiration flow like ink upon your quill,

Faith

This Week in Review | The Twenty-First

Good Monday All,

It’s been a hectic last week for me, busy with my projects and the inconsistencies of life. Here’s just an overview for your consideration 🙂

Friday Farewell

IN WRITING

Yesterday evening, I finished writing the last of three new chapters for Heritage, all by hand. Not only was the feeling of writing liberating, but it was a pleasure to dive into Peggie’s head and write from her perspective for the first time, not editing third person to first.

I also managed a really in-depth edit of the first act of my screenplay. I’m really proud of some of it, but I’m worried I’m trying to cover too much in one script. I’ll see how the rest of the edits go and then decide.

Lastly, I’ve made some progress outlining a new project — I mentioned it last week. It’s going well so far. I love it so far and I’m excited for the day when it’s solidified and I can share it with you all!

IN ENTERTAINMENT

In the business of life, I managed to find time to watch Clue with my sister. I have watched this film a good four times already, but it’s been awhile since the last time.

A cult classic, a perfectly quirky black comedy. The ensemble is such a eclectic group of people led by the hilarious Tim Curry. If you haven’t delighted in this clever little film, I highly recommend you try. Here’s the trailer, in case you need a little more convincing:

 

I also managed to finally watch the finale of Game of Thrones. As someone who’s read the books, this season has been a rollercoaster of emotion. But nothing can possibly compare to this explosive finale! Not only was it a whirlwind of nasty plot twists and sudden deaths, but it was also a cinematographic spectacle. From the opening scene to the closing one. Just a masterpiece in storytelling and filmmaking. Next season please 🙂 Or next book. Whichever comes first…. Bets anyone?

IN MY LIFE

I’ve been rather engaged this week with two wakes and a wedding. All it was missing were Andy McDowell and Hugh Grant.

The two deaths were related to coworkers. One woman lost her mother, another her father. The mother was her nineties. The father had just been diagnosed with throat cancer less than a month ago.

Life is fragile. That’s what these moments remind me of. Anything can happen from day to day. We should never take the time we have been given for granted.

After going to one Monday afternoon and another Friday, it was a joy to be able to attend the wedding of two of my friends on Saturday. My sister and I attended the mass together in the afternoon. It was such a beautiful ceremony and attended by a good two hundred people. It really had me thinking about what my own wedding might look like one day…

We also attended the reception that night. There were close to three hundred people in attendance. It started out being such a great event, but then I ended up getting sick and had to leave early, which was a really big bummer, because we were having such a wonderful time and I wanted nothing more than to stay and dance the night away. Oh well… there will be other weddings.

We enjoyed the time we did have, though. And I will not regret what could have been, but remember most happily what was 🙂

Now, I’ll just leave you with a cute video that my sister just passed onto me 🙂


How was your last week? Anything exciting happen? What was the last wedding you attended like? Was it a big affair? Or small, intimate setting? I’d love to chat 🙂

May inspiration flow like ink upon your quill,

Reviews: Infernal Bonds

WWW Wednesday

#WIPjoy

This was the last week for #WIPjoy in June. The next one will either take place in August or September. I loved taking part this time, and can’t wait for the next one 🙂

Day 26: What keeps you working on this WIP?

Day 28: What do you want the future book cover to be like?

Day 29: What’s the best thing people can say about this WIP? (excuse the typo…)

Day 30: What are you planning for your next WIP after this one?

Writing

As day 30’s #WIPjoy post reveals, my other main WIP at the moment is Heritage. Last month I did a read through of my first draft and switched the entire POV from third person to first person. It was a BIG undertaking, but a necessary one, and ultimately a rewarding one 🙂

In July, I have three main writing goals outlined: edit a decent second draft of Heritage ready for a beta-read, finish a final draft of my dark adaptation screenplay (a goal carrying on from last month)! I’m also working on a new project–one that I’m rather excited for, but not yet ready to reveal. Maybe in August.

Entertainment

Thinking about the release of Beauty and the Beast in 2017 with Dan Stevens and Emma Watson, I’ve been in a bit of an Emma Watson mood, so I looked up some movies of hers that I haven’t watched and ended up choosing Perks of Being a Wallflower. I wasn’t prepared to enjoy it, and yet I did! Emma was fantastic and Ezra Miller has earned a great amount of respect from me. It was really great storytelling and directing. A surprise winner 🙂

In My Life

I mentioned in my 20 Things about Me tag that I had recently made one of the most impulsive purchases of my life! Well, I’m happy to announce that it came in earlier today and I am extremely excited to be get started learning how to play my brand new violin!!

I have been playing the guitar for many years which is in no way a sign that I’ll manage the violin with any more ease.

You might be asking why I bought it. Well, a lot of it has to do with an old dream to learn another instrument. But a big reason for the impulsive suddeness has a lot to do with the protagonist of Heritage, Peggie. She plays the fiddle. I want to feel more of a bond with her and I think that’ll be best achieved if we can share a love of an instrument. So I’ll be learning — hopefully she can teach me a bit ;P


Can you remember your most impulsive buy? What was it and what inspired you to purchase it? Leave a comment. I’d love to hear about it 🙂

May inspiration flow like ink upon your quill,

This Week in Review | The Nineteenth

Happy Monday!

Another week has flown by! But this one feels far more productive than the last so that’s a good thing 🙂

Here are just a few highlights for your consideration…

REVIEWS: Name of the WindTreasure Island & Infernal Ties

Day 20: Share a line that mentions food:

Day 21: Does the weather or nature act as antagonist at any point?

Day 22: Share a line about a smell:

Day 23: Is this a kissing book? 🙂

Day 25: Do your characters feel like your…Friends? Kids? Both? Something else entirely?

WRITING

I’ve made a lot of great strides with HERITAGE! Those of you who’ve been here for awhile, know that Pirate Eyes is my baby and that I’ve been working on it for 10 years! I’ve always wanted it to be my debut, but as I’ve been working through Heritage, I’ve come to realize that it might be a better showcase of who I am. So my plans have changed! I’m going to be focusing more thoroughly on Heritage for the next two months. I’ve just about finished going through the first draft and I’m making quite a few changes! I’ll post more on the story in the near future, but that’s where I am right now!

ENTERTAINMENT

I’ve watched two movies this past week: The Fall and An Education!

The Fall is a rather interesting film, stronger on the visuals than the actual storytelling, but it is beautiful none the less, directed by Tarsem Singh and led by a brilliant performance from Lee Pace! I highly recommend you take a look at this movie because it is visually stunning and a feat in filmmaking!

An Education was not what I expected, but it was a great movie led by a fantastic cast! At once a coming-of-age story, it holds a lot of lessons for young women looking to find themselves. Carey Mulligan is superb!

I also finally watched two finales this week! Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and Jane the Virgin. These two shows have become my favourite in the last year, both proving themselves to be feminist in their perspectives. The latter especially broke my heart with this season finale and I’m really wishing it was fall so that I can see where they take the show next!

IN MY LIFE

Making big plans that I know are going to shape my future in a big way! What does it include? Quitting my job? Just maybe 😛


What’s been going on in your life this week? Any big surprises? New developments? Share something exciting in the comments 🙂

This Week in Review | The Sixteenth

Happy Monday everyone!

As mentioned in my last update, I’m resurrecting my This Week in Review posts, just to highlight exciting happenstances in my life in terms of writing, entertainment, discoveries. The only aspect I won’t be touching on are books because my WWW Wednesday posts cover that adequately 😉

So, here we go!

My 2016 Half-Year Report

#WIPjoy

On Twitter this month, Bethany (@simmeringmind) is hosting a celebration of our works-in-progress!

I started off focusing on Pirate Eyes even though my attention has shifted off it this month … more about that soon … Here are the first four:

DAY ONE: Tell us about your WIP!

DAY TWO: Introduce your protagonist’s awesomeness!

DAY THREE: Share a line showing your WIP’s atmosphere.

DAY FOUR: Share a line about one of your WIP’s main emotions.

Writing:

I went through the entire first draft of my screenplay adaptation and came out with a few epiphanies. I have some scenes to add and a few other things to fix, but I’m still confident I can make my end of June deadline.

I’ve also been inspired recently by a brilliant novel that I’m reading (the Name of the Wind) and I’ve come to the realization that Pirate Eyes deserves better than what she is right now. She has more potential than I realized and I want her to shine as brightly as she can. And so I’m not going to rush into publishing her.

Instead, I’m going to put my effort into Heritage, my NaNoWriMo novel because I know I can have her ready for the end of the year for publication. In the meanwhile, I’m going to solidify my plan for Pirate Eyes and prepare for a publication next year!

Of course, anything is possible 🙂


Have a beautiful rest of the day and a great week!

Anything exciting happen to you in the past week? Share the awesomeness!
