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. =(

#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…
