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"
Composer: Trevor Morris (this man is a God with music)!


Season 2 OST The Tudors - "Anne Begs Henry"
Composer - Trevor Morris

Rihanna - Stay
A repeat, but the chorus plays such a huge part in the end of the Nether series. All the lyrics really but dang that chorus...

This song has been Ava and Devon's theme song through all three books. So of course now that I am at the end you better believe this song has been on repeat a lot! Sorry it is a link, blogger wasn't cooperating with the youtube video. It is a safe link. =)

And now I will bore you with some character videos. *I did not create these. Other wonderful people did for movies and such. I just found some I fell in love with. I don't claim to own them either. They belong to the people that created them.*

 Channing Tatum & Amanda Seyfried in Dear John.
Video creator: Sofia Flores 

Amanda has always been my Ava. Channing works as a very hot Devon (but he is not the original actor I visualized Devon after). If he were I think the series would never end. Who can ever say goodbye to someone like Channing?

Amanda & Shiloh Fernandez as Peter and Valerie in Red Riding Hood. This would have to be Ava and Kaine. And omg this song!!!
Video Creator: FENRIIIR

That is all for today. I hope you enjoyed the songs and videos. I will still  be doing WIP Wednesdays as I have my sci/fi dystopian novel to finish in June. Again, it's sad saying goodbye to a trilogy of books that helped define the writer I am becoming.

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…
