Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram!
I came across this milestone while I was checking my dashboard during a writing break:
So naturally I stopped writing and this ensued:
And now that I’ve come out of shock, I wanted to say thank you all so much, and look out for a post to enter my book giveaway with full details on WEDNESDAY!
You can reblog an upcoming Wednesday post for a chance to win one of two copies of a not yet released new age healthy living book by a new author recently featured on Dr. Oz! Look out for that in a few days, because I want to give back in gratitude of all 10,000 unique vibrations that make up this space.
Over the weekend, per the perfect date night, I saw Catching Fire, the new Hunger Games movie!
Such a beautiful comment on the human spirit, and how we all have the power to re-write the norm.
Who else has seen it and is equally proud of and borderline obsessed with Jennifer Lawrence?
Just a sidenote - I’ve gotten a couple questions about not posting as many personal pictures on here. Don’t worry, that’s why I got an instagram! Feel free to follow @loveannapatrick (http://instagram.com/loveannapatrick).
Namaste and mockingjays,
Back To Wonderland
So for those of you who have been asking me for a book update, I thought what better time then the present? Because I’m on full on writer’s mode today.
First, after I graduated college I had to take a little break from writing. Am I the only one who feels completely devoid of creativity during the summer? The bulk of my book was written in the winter months, January-March. I need cold and dark to find the rabbit hole. Finally, the time has come around again.
A little while ago I completed a Writer’s Digest course on query letters and novel manuscripts, which ended up being a huge confidence booster for me, and I feel like I learned so much about the process and how to get a book out into the world.
I now have a working query letter and synopsis, and also my manuscript was evaluated by a professional in the industry for the first time!
And the exciting part is that I recently had an agent from Kimberley Cameron & Associates look over my work, who gave me amazing feedback that I am beyond happy with. Now I’m in the process of editing my manuscript with some of her comments acting as my own white rabbit.
When I feel confident that the revision process has come to a close, with the agent’s help, I’ll (deep breath) send it out into the world! I continue to be mindful about how deep of a spiritual process this part in the revision stage can be. It takes a lot of intuition to know what the right move is, and when the manuscript is truly ready.
I’m haunted by the example of one of the greatest writers of all time, in my humble opinion, Kafka, who never wanted to publish his work because it never felt “finished.” Thanks to Kafka’s friend who denied his dying wishes to burn all of his work, we have The Metamorphosis today, which acted as a muse for parts of my own work now, and to other writers far better and more accomplished than I.
With that said, sometimes you have to trust your intuition and take the plunge, and send it out into the world when you feel at peace with it. After following Alice through this round of revisions I feel like my place of peace could be just around the corner.
Namaste and happy writing,
Because we all need a bit of silliness every now and again.
That’s right, I caved. I was clean for a little more than a year and then I promptly fell off the wagon and into the social media bog that is Instagram.
I just got it going today so bear with me, and I set it to private but feel free to request! @loveannapatrick
And of course feel free to message me yours too!
So yes, I’m 23 today.
I have to thank so many of you for the birthday wishes, it’s so sweet to be remembered in the wild Tumblrverse.
To celebrate Cezar and I will enjoy a dinner cruise around NYC, look out for a picture or two from that, and a warm namaste and thank you for the amazing birthday energy!
Hi all, just thought I would divulge a little life update,
I’m starting a new job, and finally kicking off my career in publishing. You’re officially reading an update from the new Digital Publicist at Media-Connect, a division of Finn Partners, the largest book publicity agency in the country. Today was my first day!
The office is located in the upper east side of Manhattan, and is filled with beautiful art of all kinds - painting, photography… and of course, books. I’m looking forward to sharing some of them with you!
As a digital publicist I get to work with authors/clients to promote books and assist with social media and online campaigns. I feel so lucky to be pursuing a passion and working with such creative and intellectual people! Deepak Chopra was a past client client as well.
Also as you can tell from the picture, I feel honored to have such a supportive and loving soul partner by my side to top it all off.
With a birthday coming up, what more can I ask for?
