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!

Birthday Bliss

I turned thirty seven this past weekend (cringe), but I had a blast doing it!

My husband and daughter made me cards (I prefer these versus bought cards). I love that they take the time to make a card each year, it makes me feel extra special. Although, this year kiddo's car was a "flat card", her words. She didn't want to fold the artwork. I totally get you, mini me.

Saturday I had a kid free day with a friend and we spent hours laughing and thrift shopping. I found some great treasures and even a pair of bright flowery running shorts. I will take a picture of said shorts as they embarrassed my friend and she vowed NOT to be seen running with me at our next race if I wore them. I took that as a compliment and a challenge. =P Later that night hubby and kiddo took me to dinner at my favorite Thai restaurant (they aren't open on Sundays).

Sunday I finally checked out one of those bar/painting shops. Five girlfriends and I drank, laughed, painted and had a great tim…

Help, My Cat is Pooping Outside the Litter Box!

This is Princess Leia. Lately, little miss Leia has had a bit of an issue. She's been pooping outside of the litter boxes. See? Even a cat behaviorist can have cats with issues. Luckily, Leia's problem was quickly and easily diagnosed. My Bengal, Loki, had been bullying her away from the litter boxes. We set up a nice little box for her in a quiet area of the house and she hasn't had any issues since. I really think she is enjoying the fact she gets her own powder room. But, there can be many reasons a kitty starts this type of behavior so I am going to go over the most common ones below.

Here are some of the basic reasons:

1. A recent litter brand change.
Cats are huge creatures of habit and often finicky when it comes to their poop dirt. If you recently changed their litter try going back to the old stuff.   2. The litter isn't deep enough.
Some cats love a lot of litter and are big diggers. If they don't have enough litter (an amount to their liking, not yours) k…

Cats & Vaccines

This gorgeous boy had to get some vaccines yesterday. I keep all of my furbabies up to date with their vaccinations and you should too. My kitties rarely ever go outside, but I still get them all their shots just in case. You never know. I once had one of my indoor only kitties get let out by an old roommate. The cat was missing for three long weeks. I was in agony not knowing where my baby was or what could be happening to him. Lucky for me, he showed back up but not without some very serious injuries. I never vaccinated him for outdoor stuff because, he was only indoor. Well, many years later I lost him to Feline Leukemia. The only time he could have contracted it was during the time he was lost. I was devastated. He could have lived a much longer life and I learned a very hard and valuable lesson.

That being said, Loki is normally a very active and spazy cat. Call it a Bengal thing. However, after three vaccines yesterday I could tell this morning he was feeling a bit blah and ten…
