WIP Wednesday

Book: Nether 3
Current Word Count: 24,547
Draft 1:

Yep, you saw that word count drop. I did a no no and back tracked with some edits. It was a must. I realized I had something going on that didn't make sense at that moment in time in the book, so I cut the chapter and will be revising and adding it back in later on near the end of the book. I took a 3k word count hit backwards, but I'll survive. My new schedule date to finish is a hard deadline date of April 25th. Then it goes out for beta's and the editor. Then it's edits all during May with a release date in the end of June (possibly mid June). They happen that fast. Sometimes. If you think about it though, I haven't been moving very fast. The first draft which normally I write NaNo style takes me normally thirty days. Not this time around. I'm doing my best to write the first draft well so it doesn't go up to three and four drafts.

Here are my musical muses this week:

My Songs Know What You Did In the Dark - Fall Out Boy
This song is soooooo shooting demons in a bad ass way type of song! I love it and the fighting scenes I write to it are so much fun!!!

My Tourniquet - Evanescence

Stand My Ground - Within Temptation

This week the music is a little heavier. That's because I am working on a lot more action scenes. =)

Happy Wednesday

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:

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 …
