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

#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…
