FicFest Blog Tour and Annoucements!

I have been away from this blog for far too long but I'm back with some pretty awesome news that I think any writers out there might want to be involved in!

I'm really excited to announce that I am part of one of the teams involved in a brand new contest!




What is FicFest exactly?


#FicFest is an online writer’s contest which helps put manuscripts in front of literary agents. This contest, unlike most, is open to manuscripts in ALL genres (including those usually excluded such as Paranormal Romance or Erotica) in the categories of Picture Book, Middle Grade, Young Adult, New Adult, and Adult

#FicFest mentors are structured into fifteen (15) teams. Each category that I listed has three teams. Each team is comprised of a team leader, and two (2) team members. Once the submissions open, each team will choose three (3) finalist manuscripts and one (1) alternate manuscript to advance to the agent round. This means that an equal number of manuscripts for each category will move to the agent round, guaranteeing that one category does NOT overpower another when it comes time for the agents. (Information on who is in each team will be announced at a later time...see the timeline below!)

45 manuscripts total move to the agent round, with 15 manuscripts being held as alternates in case one of the main finalists drops out of the contest for any reason. This is one of the things we stress in promoting #FicFest because most contests are overrun with Young Adult. In many contests, they may advance 40 manuscripts to the agent round, but the problem lies in the fact that 30 of that 40 are all Young Adult. That won’t happen with #FicFest.

Nine manuscripts from each category will make their appearance in the agent round. No more, no less. NINE each. Let me stress this one more time. In the agent round, there will be 9 Picture Books, 9 Middle Grade, 9 Young Adult, 9 New Adult, and 9 Adult. Everyone gets a fair chance.

We are adding more agents every day and while I can’t give you a solid number at this stage (that'll be announced later!), I can tell you that we have close to two dozen confirmed to participate in our agent round and we can’t wait!

Sounds cool...when is everything happening?

If you're thinking that you'd like to take part in the contest, or even just watch from a distance, you'll need to know when everything is kicking off. There's already a crazy amount of interest - from agents, writers and publications - and I'm really honoured to be a part of the first FicFest!

Happy NaNoWriMo!


It is NaNoWriMo! it's also been FOREVER since I blogged. Bad Hannah. 

So my past NaNo success rate doesn't even need to be discussed but hopefully this year will be a win! I don't know why I do this to myself but aaaaah well.

If you don't know what NaNoWriMo is (and a surprising amount of people in my university do NOT know what it is), then it's where writers across the globe attempt to write 50K in 30 days across November. NAtional NOvel WRiting MOnth...see what they did there?

We can be buddies on NaNoWriMo's website - the more the merrier I always say: MY PROFILE


MY 2015 PROJECT

I started off plotting for Counterparts, a YA scifi but a week ago I just wasn't feeling it. I know it's an important story and I want to tell it but conceptually it's too big a project to undertake in 30 days. I needed more time to work out the major kinks. So I switched to a SNI (I say new, I came up with it months ago and it's been eating at my brain ever since). My project is an untitled YA/NA modern fantasy, centred around secret courts that exist in our world. It's a lot less heavy in tone than Counterparts, and kind of fun. I'm writing it more for myself than anything! It follows my MC as she discovers that *CLICHE* the world isn't what she thought it is, and she's kind of tossed into these fantasy courts rife with political intrigue, war, romance, magic, and much more. I like to think of it as The Mortal Instruments meets A Court of Thorns and Roses, with a lot of mythology and old stories tossed in. One court's history is based kind of around a Beauty and The Beast adaptation, so I am so excited.

HOW HAVE I PLANNED
  • I mostly used the Better Novel Project to outline - find you can adjust it easily enough and even though I'm undecided about using Scrivener this month, it works really well with that program.
  • Discussed plotting etc with writer friends. Mostly my writing group #RoyalWriters, and Dana and Steph specifically. Thanks to you all for you help, and especially Dana who went through my first outline and asked loads of questions that helped!
  • Reading lots of books, especially writing ones.
  • Started a detox! My friend and I are eating better and drinking more water and I know this will keep my mind fresh.
  • PINTEREST of course. I've been adding to my board for the past month like a crazy lady. Check em out if you like and see how this story is mostly about fox pictures.
       


NANO TIPS AND TRICKS
  • Don't be tempted to stay up til 4am writing. Get a good amount of sleep and that will actually help you not to burn out and see it through.
  • Drink lots of water to keep your brain hydrated and the words coming.
  • Eat healthy snacks as well as your favourites, for better brain stuff.
  • Write ins, word sprints...believe me, they help. Especially if you are in high demand in your own home and can't always lock the door.
  • Prioritise. Winning is great, but at the end of the day, I count any amount of words towards your final goal as victory. If you have homework and assignments and chores, do them. Work and school comes first, try to balance but don't run yourself ragged.
  • If you need background noise but are tired of your playlist, I highly recommend ambient noise generators like Rainy Cafe!
  • Also, Pinterest. When are they gonna start paying me for the amount of advertising and praise I give them?
  • Exercise! Sounds crazy, but get out, have a walk, do some squats - whatever suits you. I know you think it will make you tired, but it actually gets blood pumping and helps your mind work better.
  • Hash out concerns about plot with writer friends and swap work regularly. I am an insecure mess so getting feedback always makes me feel better!

ANYTHING I WISH I HAD DONE TO PREPARE

  • Not switched ideas a week before November and had to reoutline a whole new story which I loved more but conceptually and world building wise needed so much work. GREAT JOB DAVIES.
  • This is probably the first time I don't have a playlist of songs to listen while I am out and about, not writing but needing to be inspired. This makes me nervous, but the weather outside right now really suits the story so fingers crossed it will be okay.

OTHER NANO PROJECTS I AM EXCITED ABOUT

  • Dana is writing this amazing high fantasy that I am in love with. The idea seems really different to a lot of stuff out there. Helping plot it has been a privilege! Check out her blog post about it.Steph did a me and switched project like...2 days ago! I like this one a lot - it's another fantasy, about a world where magic is determined by colour. I won't say much more than that but it sounds great! 

FINAL WORDS

I would reeeeeally love to be blogging and vlogging this experience so I hope that can happen. I found my camera but it's not the best, so the quality won't be fantastic. All the same, I want to get in the habit of vlogging and this is a good way to start.

My coblogger, NaNo buddy and transatlantic twin Dana did the NaNoWriMo Tag on her own channel (and tagged me hahaha)! She also announced something pretty cool in this video so check it out :)



What about you guys - are you participating in NaNoWriMo? Let's DO IT!

Sweater Weather Tag

Tagged by Kel! Thank you Kel!


I know, I know, it's been a month since I last blogged. Don't worry - I'm disgusted with myself. To be fair, I have been blogging over on Dana's blog, so there's some redemption!

This tag made me fall in love with autumn all over again...my favourite time of year is September through to December. There's so much about it I love - the fashion, the smells, the food, but mostly just the seasonal changes. As much as I love sun, curling up in some blankets with a book after being in the cold is a great feeling.

Some of these questions were taken from Ingrid Nilsen's Sweater Weather video and some were taken from the original itsmelexie1.


1. Favorite candle scent?

I am a candle freak so it's hard to pick one. I love Yankee Candles as a go-to, because they have so many different scents that can suit whatever you're looking for. Their autumn range is just lovely. I really like Fireside Treats by them - it has a marshmallow smell that reminds me of bonfires at cold weather, but it's not overpoweringly sweet. 

2. Coffee, tea, or hot chocolate?


Hot chocolate, made with soya or almond milk. Just because it's dairy free doesn't mean it's not delicious! 

3. What's the best fall memory you have?


Fireworks night in England as a kid. It was always so bloody cold but November 5th really just epitomises everything about autumn that's great - wearing lots of layers, scarves and hats, hot drinks, sweet treats and fire.

4. Which makeup trend do you prefer: dark lips or winged eyeliner? 

Winged eyeliner is a trend I'd wear all year, so I have to say the dark lip. I think rich plum lips really work with the fall palette!

5. What do you want to be for Halloween?

I don't do Halloween but I've been informed by two of my closest friends that I have to be Buttercup from The Powerpuff Girls for the big on-campus costume party. We'll see....I'm open to suggestions!


6. Best fragrance for fall?

Weirdly, one of my favourite autumn scents is a antibacterial hand gel someone brought me back from America. It's New England Autumn Bouquet by Bath and Body Works and I have the smallest amount left, which makes me very sad, because I can't easily get hold of another. Trying to be sparing with it but it reminds me of autumn so much I like to to use it all the time.

I think musky smells go hand in hand with autumn, because they're not as floral as a summer scent and they have that darker edge to them that makes me thinking of earlier evenings and being bundled up in layers. The Body Shop do their classic White Musk (which reminds me of my mum) but I actually really like their White Musk Smoky Rose. 

My friend also just gave me the Victoria Secrets Amber Romance Shimmer Mist, which has a really clean autumnal smell - plus it's orange! Who doesn't love sparkles?


7. Favorite Thanksgiving food?


Thanksgiving isn't a big thing in England. At all, in fact. But I have American family so my mum always makes sure we have a meal around the same time. We usually just use it as an opportunity to take a step back from our busy lives and acknowledge what we have to be thankful for, which can be so easily lost in the day to day drama of life. We eat a traditional roast dinner, so my favourite food would be the stuffing!

8. What is autumn weather like where you live?

Cold and windy, but generally still bright and crisp. The seasons don't change as dramatically in London unfortunately but my flat this year is surrounded by trees so I've noticed it a lot more.

9. Hats or Scarves?

Scarves. I used to love hats, but now my hair is short so I don't think they suit me as well now!


10. Most worn sweater?

I don't know really. I don't have many sweaters that have lasted for me to wear them year after year. I just got a nice thick cardigan though, which I will probably wear to death.


11. Must-have nail polish this fall?

Same with lips, I love a burgundy or plum nail in the fall. Even as dark as a brown. Essie do the biggest range of colours and they last too. I like Merino Cool by them, but I also have Divine Wine by Rimmel which I'm wearing at the moment! 


12. Football games or jumping in leaf piles?

Jumping in leaf piles. I love American football though.


13. Skinny jeans or leggings?

Skinny jeans for sure.


14. Combat boots or Uggs?

Hmmm, combat boots. Uggs are fun and comfy, but I wouldn't wear them outside. I hate wet feet and there's a good chance of getting them in England if you wear Uggs outside.


15. Is pumpkin spice worth the hype?

To be honest, I've never tried the famous PSL so I couldn't say whether or not I think it's worth it. I do really like pumpkin soup and pumpkin pie, so I might like it.


16. Favorite fall TV show?


At the moment, Once Upon A Time because Season 5 just started airing and I looooove that show, but also Reign. Also, has anyone noticed how it's like perpetually autumn on The Vampire Diaries? 

17. What song really gets you into the fall spirit?

I may have mentioned this but Talking Is Hard by Walk The Moon was definitely my summer album, but I definitely prefer a slower tempo in the autumn months. I'll probably be listening to a bunch of Halsey, Florence, Sleeping At Last, and anything else with a ethereal sound. I'm listening to Years and Years, and The Weeknd a lot. But really my music isn't really affected by the seasons. I tend to just listen to what I like.

18. What's your #1 favorite thing about fall?

Probably having bonfires and the nights drawing in fast. I love it being dark longer and the leaves turning red. Bundling up against the cold, taking walks and the build up to Christmas.




Did you agree with any of my sweater weather answers? If so (or not) comment below! :)

I always go to tag people, but they've already done it! So feel free to do this tag if you want - I'm tagging you all!

What I Currently Love (August 2015)

Another month, another post about what I love! Seriously, where are the months going? It seems like I did this just yesterday. It's a bit late but here's what I was loving last month! As usual, this was inspired by Erica's blog post.

ONE APP

 I am terrible at drinking enough water and I find it kind of sad that I have to have an app that reminds me to do so, but it is what it is. Sad or not, Aqualert is really helping me to keep on track of the amount of water I should be drinking daily. Since there are a number of health problems that can easily be solved just by being hydrated, it's worth it to install this.



TWO SHOWS

I finally started watching Orphan Black and marathoned the first series in a week. Tatiana Maslany is insanely talented; I completely forget the fact that I'm watching one person play all these characters because she does them all so differently. My favourite is probably Alison for comic value but they're all great. I love it and I need Season 3 now - especially since it won't be too long before the fourth season airs. Come on, Netflix, help a girl out?






If you know me, you know I love detective shows in any capacity, con artists and art heists, and Matthew Bomer. Since it includes all three, White Collar is the perfect show for me. I'm still working my way through it but it's so good. I love the dynamic between Caffrey and Agent Burke and how their friendship develops over the seasons. I'm a sucker for partnerships like theirs.




THREE CHANGES

I am now coblogging with Dana! Which is awesome for so many reasons. Blogging with one of my friends (plus freaky-deaky soul twin from the other side of the world) is not only going to be hella fun, but a good learning experience for me. Dana has been at this blogging game for a while now so I'm learning all the time, and very honoured to be working with her. I'm already loving the plans we're coming up with *restrains self from sharing all the secrets*

Goodbye Republic of Ireland, hello Big Smoke! Today I fly back to London. University starts up again soon (after freshers) and it's my final year, and also my dissertation year. Depending on whether I go on to do a Masters or not, this might be my last time in an educational institution. All that aside, I love school and studying, so I'm looking forward to what this year has to bring. The modules look like very interesting and I'm planning to make the most of my time at Greenwich. 

I know some of you will read this and shake your head, but I'm implementing some big changes to my diet at the moment. I love food. I love all food. But the fact of the matter is that not all food agrees with me and I value being fit and healthy. Which I am not. So I've had to seriously look at what I eat and address whether or not I want to live past fifty. That sounds bleak; it's not like I'm overweight, but I'm not healthy. And at nearly twenty five, I should be in the prime of my life. I want to be!

FOUR FOODS

OKAY, on that note, advanced warning that these may be a little...healthy. 




I honestly thought I would hate Nakd Bars (I am a fussy eater when it comes to fruit) but I love these, especially the Berry Delight one. They're expensive though, which bums me out, since I'm a poor student. Maybe I'll find a recipe for homemade ones!





My usual go to snack is biscuits and when I snack, I mean, I'll eat a whole packet to keep me going. When someone said try eating a handful of nuts as a snack, I was like, yeah, thanks, but no. Still, I tried it and really got into it. I like pistachios a lot and walnuts (they look like brains and they're good for your brain), but I like cashews best. They really hit the spot as an elevenses* snack, with some orange and a cuppa.

*Yes, I am part hobbit and I have several meals in a day. Eat little and often, right? *runs off to have second breakfast*



BEAN BURGERS. Instantly, a large portion of you will gag at this idea but I have the nicest recipe for Mexican bean burgers. Sometimes it's good to have a meat-free dinner every now and then! I made these for my mum (who is actually a vegetarian) and decided to have one myself. I made a whole batch for her so that she could thaw them when I was gone, but I ate nearly all of the stash. They go really well with salad and some sriracha and mayo, though the recipe's condiment suggestion probably works really well too.








I forgot how much I love this soup that my mum makes but I need to remember to make it when I'm back, especially in the cold winter months. FOTATO! Fotato, or Fake-Potato soup, tastes and is thick like a starchy potato soup, but is made from cauliflower so it's super healthy and not overly carby. I know, I know, but bear with me. It's delicious. It fills you up, it's rich and yummy, but it's good for you. I'm a massive advocate in healthy foods tasting good. Because no one likes to eat rabbit food and it taste like rabbit food.

I'd share it with you but it's a secret recipe soooo...sorry.




FIVE SONGS


Wildest Dreams was one of my favourite songs on 1989 but I was really surprised Swift released it as a single. I prefer her softer tracks that harken back to her older albums (Red still remains my favourite though). Got to love the video for this one too. Or should I say, got to love Scott Eastwood looking all broody and chiselled on the African plains.










I continue to be obsessed with Talking Is Hard. I'm the kind of person that finds an album they like and listens to it forever or until I'm sick of it. It's my summer album I think, since I've listened to little else. It is heavily inspiring me to write a contemporary romance too. I KNOW - the very genre I am so critical of. This is what they do to me.




Troye Sivan has such a beautiful voice and this song. So pretty.






Got directed to Halsey through someone on Twitter who kept tweeting her lyrics and I ended up looking her up because HELLO, BEAUTIFUL WRITING, and started listening to Badlands. Love the sound of the whole album but Castle has been a big inspiration towards something I'm writing at the moment.












Lean On has been a persistent song this summer but besides that, it's a good gym track and I find myself listening to it a lot as I work out. I am so mainstream I know.








Do you love any of these right now? Lemme know!

Leibster Award Tag!

Kel at A Teen's Life nominated me for the Leibster Award! Thanks Kel!
Here are the rules for the award.
leibsteraward2
liebsterawards


1. What is your favorite book and why?

Like most readers, I have a few! I always think this is an unfair question for a reader/writer because I have so many and for different reasons, moods and occasions. One is Death On The Nile by Agatha Christie; I reread it probably once a year, and even though I know the mystery by heart, I still love it. Another would definitely be Graceling by Kristen Cashore. 

2. What was your favorite book when you were a little kid?

My mum used to read Enid Blyton's Folk of the Faraway Tree to me, and I loved them.

3. Who are a few of your favorite characters and which books are they from?

Why is it when I have to answer questions like this I go blank? I've always loved Katsa from Graceling. I think she was one of the first characters I kind of consciously viewed as a 'strong' heroine in YA and I love that story a lot. But I genuinely have so many, I couldn't name them all. 

4. Where did you find the original inspiration for the last story you wrote or your WIP (work in progress)?

I get a lot of inspiration from dreams, which sounds corny but it's true. We were reading The Thought Fox by Ted Hughes in class, and I dreamed about a fox girl who said she was a kitsune. That portion of the dream lasted all of a few seconds, but I woke up, wrote it down and went on with my life. I kept thinking about kitsunes though and ended up researching them, which lead to the story I'm now working on. I am also working on a story with my really good friend Dana and I don't really know how the inspiration for that came about other than we both said we love boarding school stories and I said, let's do it. So we did.

5. In books, do you usually like the villain better than the protagonist, or the protagonist better than the villain?

I always like the villain best, especially if they're a villain who becomes a protagonist. There always just seems to be more potential for growth and development. Why did they take this path? What redeems them? People are more interesting if they're flawed. I also love the chance to see them redeem themselves, but it's also really interesting if they don't.

6. What is one of your favorite memories? 

A lot of them are with my family, holding brothers and sisters for the first time. Maybe rocking my brother Benny to sleep, because he'd only settle for me. Or the day my mum wrenched open a train door, because I was trapped inside and she was on the platform. She threw hot chocolate all over us and we had to buy new clothes. Pretty funny!

7. If you met a stranger on the street and they handed you a heavy black briefcase and whispered “You know what to do,” how would you react? 

I'd like to think that'd be super cool, but I'd probably be responsible and take it to a police station. I'd definitely take a look inside first though, because I am way too curious. 

8. What are a few of your favorite songs at the moment?

I'm just gonna go with the entire Walk The Moon Talking Is Hard album. And The Civil Wars.

9. Would you be the one pulling the prank, or the one getting pranked? 
I am the Prank Queen.

10. In your group of friends, which friend are you (the quiet one, the outgoing one, the crazy one, the smart one, the friendly one, etc…)

I'm not sure. I guess I've always been either the smart one or the one that mothers everyone, with a good dash of the funny one tossed in. 

11. What is your favorite season and why?

Winter. My birthday, Christmas, long evenings, warm fires, hot drinks, curling up with a book, snow...bring on December!



Now I have to give you 11 facts about myself, which is always the hardest part:

  • I was named after my mum's best friend when she was a kid.
  • My favourite biscuits are digestives or any kind or Oreos.
  • I am a junior editor at indie publisher Patchwork Press. 
  • I'm the oldest of eight kids. For real. EIGHT.
  • I'm obsessed with detectives. I will watch any detective show. I will read any detective book. I sometimes kind of actually want to be a detective more than I want to work in publishing.
  • I'm a Capricorn. *makes goat noises*
  • I love cooking and baking an insane amount. I'm always in the kitchen. And if you haven't met me in person, you can guarantee that I will try to win your friendship with baked goods. Ask any of my IRL friends. They only want me for my cookies. 
  • I would like to marry Tom Hiddleston. If that's okay with him of course.
  • I might be British but I actually don't drink tea. Mostly because when you can't have milk, you have to have almond milk or soya and they make tea taste like cack so I just avoid it all together. I usually drink peppermint or some other herbal/fruit tea.
  • My top three animated Disney movies (in NPO) are Basil the Great Mouse Detective, Beauty and the Beast and The Hunchback of Notre Dame.
  • Aaaaand because I got stuck and asked for help, Dana suggested I put that I love her as my final fact. Since it's true, I will.

I'm supposed to ask eleven questions for the bloggers I nominate, but truth is I really don't know anyone with a blog that has less than 200 followers (that Kel didn't already nominate that is). So I'll put eleven questions and if you have a small blog following then please feel free to do this and consider yourself tagged!

  1. Do you have any irrational fears?
  2. Who is your biggest celebrity crush?
  3. Do you like stationery? If not, we cannot be friends.
  4. Pick a fictional detective to partner.
  5. You're stuck in a book - which one?
  6. I have transformed you into a food item. What are you?
  7. What is one of your best qualities?
  8. I've just hired you to work at my super awesome multi-billion dollar company. What position have you filled?
  9. Quote me some Shakespeare that you like.
  10. What one Disney movie will you absolutely insist your kids watch?
  11. Do you love Dana?

Best of luck!

Without further ado, here's seven random facts about me:

1. My first crush was legitimately Basil the Great Mouse Detective.
