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.

#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…

Things I Am In Love With Lately

Number One:

Dracula on NBC
Anyone who knows me can tell you that I have a long time love with all things Dracula. I can't even count all the different versions I have of the Bram Stoker novel. So when NBC decided to make a period paranormal drama out of it, I had to check it out. I fell in love, hard. Jonathan Rhys Meyers plays the cold and calculating count Dracula and I tell you what, he could nibble on my veins any day. Jonathan and I go way back. I have loved everything he has been in (especially the Tudors) so combine his hotness and my love of good old Drac and BANG, you've got yourself a swoon fest. The acting is great, the story line is legend with a nice new spin on things, and the music...
...the music is just slap you in the face stunning and inspiring. Who is the composer you ask? Another one of my favorites, Mr. Trevor Morris. Here is a nice little clip:
