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.

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 …
