WIP Wednesday

Book: Nether Book 3.
Current Word Count: 11,424
Draft: 1

I've managed to get up to 11k words with the WIP. I'm happy about that since I have had a lot going on. I am totally struggling this week with the muse and with having a cold. But, I wouldn't be writing about Ava if I wasn't struggling. It's no surprise her "muse" is being stubborn. Here's my inspiration this week:

It has been a lot of fun coming back to these characters and seeing how much they've grown up over the course of these three books. I mean, when I started the first book Christa was just a toddler.

For music, I've been revisiting some older tunes I've probably posted on this blog before. I'm rehashing old emotions between some characters and they have certain songs that go with them.

 You're Not Sorry Remix - Taylor Swift


Cold Play - Gravity
(This is literally Ava and Devon's love theme song)

Joan Armatrading - Weakness In Me

Craig Armstrong &Elizabeth Fraser - This Love

I can honestly say that not only have these characters grown up. Some of them have grown a back bone and they're tired of being walked all over. When you have nothing else to fight for, nothing left to lose, you forget the rules and start making your own. I'll just say it. Devon isn't to be messed with in this book and if feels SO good to finally let him be free to make his own decisions.

I apologize for not posting on Monday. I started writing early in the morning and in the afternoon I had to go pick up my brand new shiny:

2013 Honda CR-V EXL
Before I realized it time slipped away and it was Monday night. Yes, I was distracted by my new shiny! =P This thing is like a space ship compared to my old car. The scary thing is new cars now seem to be smarter than humans. Now I know why they are making robotic cars that can drive themselves because that is all the cars these days need us for. Once they master that technology look out world. Seriously, this thing tells me everything. I just wish I could get it to talk to me with a British accent. =( Trust me, I went through all the manuals, there is no option to change the accent. 

Yesterday I started getting sick, BUT I did get to go meet my new fur baby:

Introducing Loki, the Bengal cat

Loki getting some snuggles from me.
He's still too little to bring home yet, but I am hoping I can bring  him to his forever home in the next 3-4 weeks. The pictures aren't that great because trying to take a picture of a non-stop moving kitten is almost impossible. But, you can see some of his little leopard spots he's starting to grow into. =P No kitty could ever take the place of my beloved Mooshu, but I did feel an instant connection with this little guy and I have a feeling my Mooshu had a hand in that. 

Happy Wednesday

  1. Oooh! The kitten is so cute and Loki is a perfect name.

    And congrats on the shiny new car. I got one not too long ago (though it's mostly covered with mud right now and therefore not as shiny) but it doesn't talk to me in any kind of accent.

    Best of luck with the writing!

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…

#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:


Nick Furry

I have been fostering these two adorable house panthers since they were two weeks old. At around four weeks of age I started to noticed something wrong with the little male's left eye.

I contacted my foster coordinator who had me bring him in so our in house vet could take a look at him. She was a bit baffled at what could be causing it so we tested him for various illnesses/cat diseases and they all came back negative. At four weeks old there isn't a lot we could do except wait and see what happened and how the eye developed. After another week I could tell he didn't seem to have vision in that eye and slowly the entire eye globe started to swell. Well, I woke up last Tuesday morning to this:
The vet had me bring him back in and it was apparent the eye would need to be removed. We did not know if it could be a tumor or glaucoma or what the heck the poor little dude had going on. The only issue was that he was tiny and only 1.5 lbs. Typically it isn't that great to do …
