May Hiatus Notice



Hello, my dears! Happy May to you all! (*pretends I’m not freaking out over the fact that it’s already May when it should still be February or something*)


If the post title and big picture above isn’t clear enough…


I’m going on hiatus
for the course of May.


I hate to do it. I always hate going a while without blogging. Buuuut Realm Makers is looming. (Like seriously, we’re less than 3 months away, people!!!) Annnnd I have much RM prep that still needs doing. Including finishing up edits for Burning Thorns. My original plan was to really focus on edits in April and get it mostly finished. But Life happened, as it does, and April turned out to be one of the busiest, most stressful and awesome months I’ve had in a long time. It was a roller coaster, guys. *collapses* Needless to say, very little editing happened.


Thankfully, I’m a good bit past halfway through the manuscript and think I can get it finished in a month or two. I just gotta actually have time. And that’s only one thing I need to get done before Realm Makers is here. *nervous laughter*


Soooo I realize I need to make time, which, sadly, means not blogging for a bit.


BUT DO NOT FEAR. I shall be back in June with lots more content for you guys. Blogging is one of my greatest joys and it’s so hard for me to take hiatuses. But, as we’ve said, Life happens. And, unfortunately, I’ve yet to find a machine that stops and/or makes more time. Until I can get my hands on one, blogging hiatuses will have to happen now and again. *pouts*


I hope your May is an absolutely magical month. IT’S ALMOST SUMMER, GUYS! :O If you’re in school right now, remember: You’re almost done. The lazy, carefree days of summer are just around the corner. YOU’VE GOT THIS!


LOVE YOU ALL!

 



TALK WITH ME!

Do you have any summer plans? Are you excited about May? Tell me everything!

  1. Ahhh, we'll miss you, Christine! But do what ya need to do. I'm so excited to read Burning Thorns someday!!!!

    As for summer and May...hoo boy. Mostly I'm excited that school will be done, but then there's also the fact that I'm going to be finishing up Pentegreens book 2, editing Pentegreens book 1 for alpha readers, and probably starting Pentegreens book 3....I'm not obsessed, whatever made you think that???

  6. Awww, I totally understand Christine! Realm Makers is super duper important, now go and edit so you can impress those agents!

    Summer? Well, let's see...it's mostly going to be working (I hope...) and writing in my Verden universe (which is very close to my heart. I have a duology now...which is From the Cave and my recent WIP, The White Rose). Unless I get bored and go to my POTO based story Shattered Chandelier....

    1. Thanks so much, Catherine! I have the best followers who are so patient with me. <3

      Ooooh, that all sounds so very exciting!!! Duologies are fantastic, because you get a good, full story BUT you don't have to deal with a 10-book series or something like that. Lol. And a POTO story??? :O SO COOL. I also adooooore that title. Shattered Chandelier. What a perfect name for a POTO novel! EEP. I'm excited about all your plans. I hope they go absolutely wonderfully!

    I'm... going to college, actually. I mean, in the fall, but it is closer now and I'm start to FEEL it, you know??

    And in other news... that gif could literally be me when I was younger. I looked just like that...

    And ooh! I wish you the bestest of luck with working on Burning Thorns! Editing is hard, but I'm finding myself enjoying it more the more often I do it. XD ALSO I CANNOT WAIT FOR THIS BOOK. So.

    1. OH MY GOODNESS IF ONLY YOU WERE GOING THAT'D BE THE GREATEST THING! Maybe one year, yeah??? :D But thank yooou!!! Do not worry. I have all the plans to write a ginormous wrap-up post ALL about it once it's done!

      I've actually discovered I quite like editing and it's STRANGE. I always thought I'd hate it but nope. It's rather satisfying. Hard, definitely, but still fun to see my manuscript get whipped into shape. AND THANK YOU. AWK. YOU'RE SO ENCOURAGING! <3

      I hope your May is lovely as well! <3

  10. Best wishes with your editing and RM prep! You've totally got this!

    My May plans are to continue revisions and finish up the last chapters. I'd also like to get a betareading plan figured out, but we'll see how things shape up as the days go by. :)

    Happy writing!

  11. Seriously... where did March and April go?!?!? They snuck off while I wasn't looking.

    Enjoy your hiatus. I shall miss you... but also, the fact that many of my blogging buddies appear to be going on hiatus right now is helping me feel less guilty for not having as much time to read blogs/comment as I would like.

    Eeeep! Realm Makers is coming up so FAST! I'm so excited! But, yes, so many things to do before it gets here!!

    1. Right??? I am so confused!

      Awww, thanks, Jenelle! And I feel you. I wish I could comment on every single post by everyone, but I just can't find the time and it makes me sad. *sniff, sniff*

      I KNOOOOW!!!! For a while it seemed like that far away thing that would never be here, but suddenly I'm realizing how CLOSE it is and panicking a smidge. But I'm also SO EXCITED! It's gonna be amazing! :D
