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

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…
