Get Creative!

What do you do when you're in a rut?

I just got a new kitten and made him his own blog (at his insistence): In Loki's Words.
Partly because I am a crazy cat lady and partly because I need to try and do something all the time for writing. It's fun, simple, and he's a kitten so it doesn't have to be perfect.

I think what I am experiencing is final book syndrome. Working on this last Nether book, while fun, is hard and sad at the same time. I don't want to say goodbye to these characters, but the story must come to an end. I ended up taking last week off (unintentionally) due to being on new medication (it's safe for me and baby) but I was having some side effect issues. The doctor advised all the things I was experiencing were normal and after a few days they should subside.  They finally did but it literally took all week. And today I haven't been able to get anything done because I have been acclimating our new Bengal kitten into our home. I really feel like this is practice for a newborn. I forgot how much work eight week old kittens can be! But, he is adorable and we already have a very close bond. I think Mooshu had a lot to do with it. He is my little guardian angel cat and I oddly see a lot of similarities between things he used to do and things Loki does. They are different but in some ways the same.

I'll be back Wednesday for a WIP post!

#Writemotivation Week 1 Update

It is that time again! I missed March =(, but I am back with a vengeance for May! Here are my goals for this month:


Wrapping Up Write Motivation

Write Motivation goals:
1. Line by line edit third Nether Book.(Finished). 2. Get third Nether Book sent off to editor. (Finished). 3. Write another 20k on NA sci/fi  (not happening this month) 4. Blog at least twice a week. (I did my best). 5. Comment on more blogs. (FAIL)!
All in all I feel accomplished. I am super fail at commenting on blogs. However, I want all of you to know I do read them. It is part of my daily routine (usually while eating breakfast). So just know you've officially been stalked and I love you!
My biggest goal was to get the third Nether book off to the editor and ready for publishing in late June or early July. I succeeded in that and I'm very happy about it! What's up next? I won't lie. I have no hard deadlines until 2014. I am taking the rest of the year off to just write casually before and after my baby girl is born. When I have time, feel inspired, or need to stay sane. It's a weird feeling not having a pressing deadline. The sense of freedo…

Should I Get An Exotic Cat Breed?

He's gorgeous, isn't he? Loki is my 4.5 year old Bengal and I can tell you he is a lot of work, but I knew that going in before I got him. I did endless hours of research on the breed. Talked with multiple breeders that were familiar with their genetic make up and behaviors. I knew he would require a lot and even though I prepared myself, I was still blown away by how much of commitment these breeds are.

All exotic cat breeds require a lot of time and tons of training for both human and cat. Although, even with the training your exotic cat may still not listen or act out. Remember, these cats are breed down the line starting with their exotic father. This means they do still have wild tendencies depending on the filial generation they fall under. Filial generations for most exotic cat breeds are as follows:

F1 - 1st Generation  Exotic cat + Domestic Mother
F2 - 2nd Generation Domestic Father + F1 Mother
F3 - 3rd Generation Domestic Father +  F2 Mother
F4 - 4th Generation  Dom…
