Getting back into the Swing of Things

Image
So I have a fair in a week. I've been off fairs for almost three weeks which hasn't been bad, because I've been weaving.  I'm still a writer, and balancing the writer and the weaver has proven harder than I thought it would. Not terrible, just different. I tend to focus on a job, finish it then focus on the next job. That, I might add is a wonderful excuse (though it is true) because I've also been putting off writing.

Why?

Because I'm still navigating how the next books in Azure's and Orfhlait's series are going to progress. Granted, for Orfhlait, there is a great deal of research needed, but there are also other elements that I'm not certain how they'll play.

Also, I have other books that are finished, but just need some editing for me to submit. I would like to expand a little bit out of the Christian fiction market and into a more mainstream market. It's not unlike the photo above: lots of muck and work, but great potential. The question…

So I mentioned last week, that yes, I'm still around, but it's been a busy summer. Now, with summer winding down, I'm looking to get back into my fairly normal routine which means that more entries will be added to the blog.

Unfortunately, September remains on my near horizon, and I have fairs basically every weekend. Yeah!


Normally, I'm not all the thrilled for busy days. I'm more of a serendipity sort of person. I like having items on my to-do list, but less then ten. Granted, when it sometimes take me a day to write a chapter in a book, having less than ten of those sorts of items to do is very practical.

My normal day would include weaving and writing and breaks. Both weaving and writing have their long stretches of work. Once I'm finished writing a novel, it needs to be edited by me, someone else (usually Mom) and lastly the editor. The editing stage can take upwards of six to eight months depending how quickly it goes.

Weaving often takes less time only b…

Just letting you all know that I haven't fallen off the edge of the world. It's been a busy summer (thankfully), and I haven't had time to slow down to post recently. Things will still be a bit hit and miss until September rolls around.

Also, by the way, look what I got in the mail finally:


Below is a photo of what I've been doing this summer. I took this photo two weeks ago at the Saturday Artisan Market at Canalside in Buffalo NY; that's my mom sitting inside my tent. If you're up in Buffalo area the first and third Saturdays of September and October 2014, this is where I'll be. Come visit.
