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).

I am pretty happy where I am at, all things considering. Next week I will probably re-outline my sci/fi in preparation to try and finish it in June. If I finish that one too (half way through it), I will feel super accomplished before baby comes. Since after she comes I will be taking the rest of the year off. I'll write here and there when and if I have time, but lets face it. Newborn > all other things. You get my point. 
 
Unless I get a super easy baby. Yeah right! No babies are easy and being a first time mom, I so have my work cut out for me. Luckily I was twelve when my little sister was born and actually played a huge role in raising and caring for her so it won't be all new to me. 
 
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…
