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

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 …
