WIP Wednesday + Write Motivation

Book: Nether 3
Current Word Count: 59,023
Draft 3:
Book Complete.

YAHOOOOOO! Book 3 is finally finished!! A few polishing touches tomorrow and it goes to the editor on Friday!!!! This is the best feeling since I really struggled with this last one. Due to not wanting to finish it for fear of saying goodbye to these characters and also being pregnant. The last month my focus has been SHOT with baby brain. I always thought that was something people made up, but now I totally get it.

*Happy dance*

Two songs that helped me along this week:

Natalie Maines - Take On Faith
Jonathan Jackson - Let There Be Lonely
Now for my Write Motivation goals:
1. Line by line edit third Nether Book.(Finished). 2. Get third Nether Book sent off to editor. (Mailing it out Friday). 3. Write another 20k on NA sci/fi  (not happening this month) 4. Blog at least twice a week. (Doing better)! 5. Comment on more blogs. (Trying. This should get better now that my novel is finished and I am not in crunch mode 24/7).

Write Motivation Update & Dracula?

1. Line by line edit third Nether Book. (Currently in progress and almost done). 2. Get third Nether Book sent off to editor. (Gets sent out next Friday). 3. Write another 20k on NA sci/fi  (not happening this month) 4. Blog at least twice a week. (Trying) 5. Comment on more blogs. (Failing)
Pretty much my whole world revolves around getting this last Nether book sent off to the editor on time. Everything else is falling on the back burner. It doesn't help that I am under a lot of other "personal" stress and have total baby brain. My lack of concentration and focus is ridiculous. But I am trying and that is what matters, right?
In other news while I was unfocused and procrastinating on the Internet I came across this:

Excuse me while I scream like a fan girl. First off when I decided to portray one of my vampires off Mr. Hotness himself, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, I had no idea about this show. Not until I stumbled across it today. And I was like WHAT!! WHAT!! Let me just say…

Anything Goes Friday

Been a while since I posted on a Friday. I just couldn't wait any longer. There is a little project I am dabbling with here and there. Nothing serious (yet) but I am loving the characters and it is something very new for me.

Genre: New Adult Paranormal

I have been working on a NA and the Nether books are paranormal, but I haven't pushed the two together before. It's dark. Really dark, murderous and seductive. Let me just put it this way. Vampires don't sparkle. No seriously they don't. Sorry to burst that bubble for you. Back in 2000 I started working on a vampire series. It slowly slipped to the back burner with other projects and I wanted to give this whole vampire craze time to...readjust. I pick with it here and there but today someone mentioned something in a conversation and the light bulb flicked back on. This time it was really bright. Brighter than before. See, about six years ago I got stuck with this story. Stuck and frustrated because all that Twilight …

Tomorrow, Tomorrow!!

Gatsby tomorrow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am a little excited. Can you tell? Who else is seeing it this weekend? Are you as excited as me?

Also, these are the songs from the trailer because if you are like me you have to have them all:

Songs from the trailer..
1. Beyonce x Andre 3000- Back to Black
2. Lana del ray- Young and Beautiful
3. Florence + the machine- Over the love

WIP Wednesday

Book: Nether 3
Current Word Count: 55,102
 Draft 1:

Don't pay too much attention to that word count. It doesn't look like it went up much since last week but trust me it has. I am not counting the last three chapters that were written way back when I finished the first book in the series. Odd as it may sound, I am going to rewrite those after I clean up this draft (thus putting it in 2nd draft form as of tomorrow) and then add them to the MS. That way I have info from my beta's and CP's and can make sure everything adds up and the plot is solid. Essentially the book will be over 60k words unless I can find some fat to trim somewhere.  And lets face it, there is always fat to trim in first drafts. Always! =P

On that note here are some songs that have inspired that last few scenes of this novel. If some are repeats, I apologize. Authors have a way with hitting repeat in their music player. What can I say. =)

Season 4 OST from The Tudors - "Surrey Found Guilty" C…

#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:
