Hello! I haven't been on figment in forever, or really been writing much (to my own dismay). That's exciting about your book! I'll have to look it up. The few times I've jumped on here have mostly been to check for updated chapters on your stories. :) I hope you are doing well. I'm hopefully about to start a masters program in Christian and Classical Studies(which is sure to get me writing more consistently again). Have a Happy New Year!

You are most welcome for the support on your book! I absolutely loved "Etiquette of Tea" and that one story you did that kind of mirrored Pride and Prejudice, I cannot remember what it's name was but I have always enjoyed your stories :)

Will you continue working on "Etiquette of Tea"? Did I see correctly that you were working on it during NaNoWriMo?

Hi Linda, I just recently checked in and found out about Figment moving to Underline. "Parting is such sweet sorrow!" Will you be joining the new site? Congratulations on publishing "If The Shoe Fits." How exciting for you! And congratulations to newly wedded Rachel! Yes, my daughter has graduated HS. She's now a 2nd year college student. Family life has been hectic. My son is in way too many activities! My creative passion the past few years has been more devoted to music. I'm in a big community choir and a 2nd sister choir that will travel to Ireland to perform in summer of 2018. I'm also in an ukulele club, and a separate ukulele band which performs at gigs etc... Nevertheless, my fondness for writing and poetry is always present even it I haven't devote time to it in recent years. I get my daily dose of writer's Almanac and poetry from Public radio. I know eventually, I will write again. Going to download and save my writings now. Thank you for the years of friendship on Figment, all your advice and reviews. Hope to find you on Underline. :)

Hello! So sorry if I never replied to your comment about your story being published but let me just congratulate you! That's so exciting that you have put your work out there, I'll definitely have to take a look at it :)

Will you be moving to Underlined?

Hope all is well ^-^

I would love chapters. It’s been a while, but I think I remember enough of EofTea to pick up with new updates.
