[Update] February 2018

HEADER

It’s February! January proved to be a busy and productive month, just not in the ways I’d expected it to be, as you might have guessed from the continued dearth of new stories on the blog. Between unpacking, getting settled, traveling home for a week, and hunting for a job to support my writing habit, there’s been no shortage of things to get done. That being said, now that they’re all more or less taken care of, next on the list is getting back into the old twice-a-month story schedule. I’m very excited.

I’m also very happy, because part of the getting settled process involved getting a writing corner set up in my room. Combined with the coffee shop half a mile from the house means, this means that I have almost unlimited opportunities for bunkering down and coaxing/threatening/luring words onto the page. If that’s not a recipe for a good writing environment, I’m sure I don’t know what is.

Speaking of which, keep an eye out for a new short story going up tomorrow! I’ve been wrestling with this one on and off since October, and provided I haven’t just jinxed it, it’s finally coming together properly. Next up is another Tanner and Miranda story that should go up before the end of the month.

That’s it for now! As always, thanks for sticking around and following my musings and meanderings. It truly does mean the world to me! If you’ve got any questions, comments, or just want to chat about writing and stories, drop me a line in the comments or by the contact link up above!

Until next time,

Handy new writing perch!

[Update] January 2018

Happy New Year! To those of you who have been following me for a while, thanks so much– you mean the world to me! To anyone just stumbling across my little corner of the internet, welcome, and if you happen to like what you see feel free to stay a while.

Between the holidays and the end of my Armenia trip, December was another fairly quiet month around here when it comes to writing. Friday blog posts went up every week, but nothing much beyond that. But! I’m back in the States, and while I haven’t manage to settle into anything like a routine just yet, I’m looking forward to more time for writing and the chance to do some more work on my bigger projects, as well as getting back into the swing of two short stories a month.

Speaking of those bigger projects, there’s two I’m particularly excited about! The first is that I’ll be working to finish the second draft of a fantasy novel tentatively titled The Seven this year. Check out the teaser here, and keep an eye out for more information as the year progresses!

The second is that I’ve got more Tanner and Miranda stories in the works, with an eye towards writing a complete collection. The two stories I’ve completed so far (Under Whiskey Hill and The Ethan Lindsay Job) were so much fun to write, and I know there’s a bunch more adventures in store for the siblings. Hopefully, you’ll enjoy reading about them as much as I’m enjoying writing them.

That’s all I’ve got for now! I hope the start of your year has been a good one, and I look forward to seeing what happens in the months ahead. As always, drop me a line in the comments if you’ve got any questions, or just to say hi! I’d love to hear from you.

Until next time,
Faith

[Update] December 2017

HEADER

It’s December, and the end of the year is approaching far faster than it has any right to. That’s what it feels like, at any rate; I’m having a hard time believing it’s not still early fall.

My Armenian adventure is quickly coming to an end, and while I can’t wait to see everyone back in the States, I can already tell I’m going to miss this place more than I ever thought possible. Between the amazing people and the more relaxed pace of life here (not to mention the incredible food), the specter of reverse culture shock is already rearing its head and eyeing me balefully from a distance. But that’s a problem for later. For now, I’m still here.

That being said, I am looking forward to seeing how the experiences of the last few months end up working themselves into my writing. I already have a few ideas– one of which is even half written. I didn’t complete any new stories in November, but there should be at least one going up in December, provided that the last couple of weeks don’t end up too crazy.

That’s all for now! As always, drop me a line in the comments or via email if you’ve got any questions. Until next time!

[Update] October 2017

HEADER

It’s October!

This is just going to be a quick update this time, mostly because there’s not a whole lot new to talk about regarding my various writing projects. I’ve still been writing– it just hasn’t been going very quickly. Something about international travel and navigating a new culture. Go figure!

I mentioned a couple of weeks back that I’d finished the first draft of a short story, and I’m still working away on it. At this point, I’ve probably got a third or a fourth of the second draft done, and I’m liking what it’s looking like. I hesitate to give an estimated time of completion, but I’m hoping to post it up in the next week or so. We’ll see!

In addition to that, I’ve got a couple of other ideas in the works, one of which should just be a simple, fun idea that will write itself easily enough. Of course, I’ve been wrong about that before, but here’s hoping.

In the meantime, I’ll keep posting up Friday updates on my Armenian adventure, so be sure to let me know if there’s anything you want to hear more about! Until then, all the best!

Musings

[Blog] Hello!

HEADER

Hey everyone!

Before I say anything else, thanks for visiting my little corner of the internet! I have so many stories to tell, and I’m looking forward to sharing them with you all– but more on that later. For now, let me just tell you a little about this blog-site-thing and what you’re likely to find here.

Basically, this is where you can find my writing, updates on my writing, and thoughts about writing (and stories) in general. Also, nerdy segues, because I can tell you right now that I won’t be able to help myself, and I wouldn’t want to anyway. Life’s too short to not be nerdy.

So, writing! The stuff I post here will be mostly short stories. Some will be completely self-contained, others might fit into a bigger universe, but all of them will be complete stories in their own right. From time to time, I’ll also put up excerpts and teasers from whatever novel I happen to be working on.

Speaking of novels… this is also where you’ll find information on my various projects. At any given time, I probably have at least three longer pieces in various stages of development. If you want to know what those are and how they’re going, you can find out here!

As for the bloggier bits, that could be anything from talking about the things that get me feeling creative to the most recent books I’ve read. And everything in between. It’s also where I’ll post various life updates and thoughts on any adventures I manage to fall into, which seems to be happening more and more as of late.

Anyway! That’s the shape of the beast. Thanks again for stopping by; it really does mean the world to me. If you’re interested in keeping tabs on my shenanigans, both fictional and otherwise, be sure to follow me here or to like me on Facebook. And that’s all for now! Time for me to go convince the jumble of words in the next document over that life will be better as a coherent story.

Until next time!
