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…

Introducing a New Cat into a Household

Fostering the Drive

To say I have been busy is an understatement. I have a good excuse. Let me show you:




I have been fostering bottle baby kittens.

I struggled with many things in my life except this. Other than motherhood (which shocked me) I took to fostering right away. Long ago I wanted to travel the world, be a successful writer, and get rich off my crafty etsy side. I dabbled in some of those and quickly realized that I wasn't good at them. I never seemed to have the dedication or the drive to push me further. The will to keep going forward even on the hardest days. But, saving neonate kittens clicked with me. My soul stopped wandering. I no longer search for the legacy I will leave behind. I understand now that saving animals, especially cats has always been my calling.

I still have a long way to go in my journey but I will advocate for these little souls. I will fight to help them have the best start in life and I will learn everything I can as a feline behaviorist to campaign for the rights…
