WIP Wednesday + Big News

Book: Nether Book 3.
Current Word Count: 23,438
Draft: 1

Did you see that up there? That word count jumped up 12k words from last week! I set a goal of writing 12k last week and I actually managed to make it happen. Sadly, this week my muse isn't playing very nice. I have not written in three days. The words just will not come and I refuse to force them. I have, however, been outlining future chapters which will make the writing part much easier once my muse stops being stubborn. It never fails. This week I set a goal of 15k words and I will be lucky to break 6k. Sigh...

If I stop setting goals or keep them secret from my muse maybe I'll get more done each day. 

Now on to the music driving what little inspiration I have this week:

Fever Ray - If I Had A Heart

Rihanna - Stay

Now for some big news. I announced on Facebook today that my husband and I are expecting our first child together. =) I am five months along and we just found out we're having a little girl. Now all those Twitter posts about me not feeling well will probably make some sense. Both baby and I are healthy, I just get really fatigued at times which is normal and doesn't help with writing either. =(

Hiatus Over & Why I Was Gone So Long

I am going to sum up my hiatus with one adorable picture:

No, I wasn't just distracted by his cuteness. This little dude suffered a terrible spinal injury while being micro-chipped. No one was at fault. The accident was simply a freak accident. Tragic, but rare and totally a freak thing. Surgery was done and I can say he is recovering well. But, his healing process is a long one and I have never worked with or rehabilitated a partially paralyzed animal before. This is a first for me and I am learning so much.  My shelter is so lucky to have such an amazing and talented vet staff.

I also want to thank the human mom of Waverly McTinybeans for all her advice and taking the time to give it. I know she is a super busy lady and I appreciated every tip.

I have spoken to multiple vets, RVT's and watched every youtube video I could find to help give this guy the best physical therapy I am able. He starts acupuncture sessions next week and little by little he makes progress. His left si…

Introducing a New Cat into a Household

Fostering the Drive

To say I have been busy is an understatement. I have a good excuse. Let me show you:




I have been fostering bottle baby kittens.

I struggled with many things in my life except this. Other than motherhood (which shocked me) I took to fostering right away. Long ago I wanted to travel the world, be a successful writer, and get rich off my crafty etsy side. I dabbled in some of those and quickly realized that I wasn't good at them. I never seemed to have the dedication or the drive to push me further. The will to keep going forward even on the hardest days. But, saving neonate kittens clicked with me. My soul stopped wandering. I no longer search for the legacy I will leave behind. I understand now that saving animals, especially cats has always been my calling.

I still have a long way to go in my journey but I will advocate for these little souls. I will fight to help them have the best start in life and I will learn everything I can as a feline behaviorist to campaign for the rights…
