WIP Wednesday

Book: Nether 3
Current Word Count: 42,449
 Draft 1:

Yes, I am actually posting today. =P And do you see that word count up there? Do you know what it means? It means progress my friends, something I've been struggling with too much lately. So I am happy to see it climb. There are another 10k words getting plugged in this week as well. Which means *drum roll*

I will be finished with this draft next week if not earlier!! I've already sent the first half of it out to my beta readers/CP's and I am eagerly awaiting the shredded  bits of paper they return to me. =P I know one of them said they were getting out their flamethrower and chainsaw and those are always good signs, right? Haha.

I've also got the artist working away on the cover and I am in the process of locking down an editor. Sadly mine is booked up, but I have been contacted by some really great free lance editors and having to choose just one is really hard because they all look so great!!

Anyhoo, here is the music muse that has been inspiring me as of late. Sorry if some of them are repeats, but hey, an author's play list is often put on repeat.

Counting Crows - Color Blind

Withing Temptation - What Have You Done Now

Bat for Lashes - I'm On Fir

Limp Bizkit - Behind Blue Eye 
 I love music. I really, really do. 

It's nice finally seeing the end of this novel in sight and bittersweet at the same time. I'll miss these characters. They've helped define me as a writer in ways I can't properly describe. I've never claimed to be the next J.K. Rowlings and I know these first three books aren't the next great novel series. However, they've shaped me and my writing. They've taught me to be brave and believe in my craft. I've grown with each one and I can never thank their muse enough. Nor all the friends and family who have believed in me along the way.  Letting go is hard and again, bittersweet.

  1. Beautiful music. So good to see you making progress in that third novel--I am SUPER jealous! And you're right about writing and making progress as an artist. Practice makes all the difference!

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…

#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:


Spring Break 2017

Kiddo is only in preschool, but their preschool still had spring break. The teachers needed I break and I can totally respect that. Here are some pictures of our week:

Day One:
Made a homemade chalkboard for outside. I decided on a smaller piece of wood that I could move in and out of the garage and not have to worry about leaving it out all year and deal with weather damage. So far it has been  a huge success but a major pain in the butt to clean. I little cleaning research and I will be golden.

Day 2:
Working in the garden. Kiddo and I love working in the garden and she even planted her own daisies that she is now responsible for. She loves going out to check on them every day (we planted seeds so she is eagerly waiting for them to sprout) and when it is watering day it's sheer bliss for her!


Day 3:
Dance Class (no photos because they are pretty strict about that at her dance studio) and after lunch some good playtime at the park!

Day 4:
We must have partied too hard the first …
