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.

Help, My Cat is Pooping Outside the Litter Box!

This is Princess Leia. Lately, little miss Leia has had a bit of an issue. She's been pooping outside of the litter boxes. See? Even a cat behaviorist can have cats with issues. Luckily, Leia's problem was quickly and easily diagnosed. My Bengal, Loki, had been bullying her away from the litter boxes. We set up a nice little box for her in a quiet area of the house and she hasn't had any issues since. I really think she is enjoying the fact she gets her own powder room. But, there can be many reasons a kitty starts this type of behavior so I am going to go over the most common ones below.

Here are some of the basic reasons:

1. A recent litter brand change.
Cats are huge creatures of habit and often finicky when it comes to their poop dirt. If you recently changed their litter try going back to the old stuff.   2. The litter isn't deep enough.
Some cats love a lot of litter and are big diggers. If they don't have enough litter (an amount to their liking, not yours) k…

Introducing a New Cat into a Household

Why Does My Cat Hate My Significant Other?

If you're reading this then I am guessing you've come here because you have a very mad kitty. I am also going to guess said kitty doesn't like your significant other. Don't worry, it happens. Cats aren't like dogs. You can't just tempt them with a little piece of steak and throw a tennis ball to become friends. If you try that your cat is just going to give you the above look and walk away hell bent on destroying your new relationship. Never underestimate kitty, they're smarter than we think.

You might even have adopted a new cat that took to you easily, but just down right dislikes the other person in your life. That's okay. There's something about an immediate bond with a cat. If you get that special moment you're lucky. If your partner does not, maybe some of the following tips can help.

1. Feeding Time:
If you're the only one feeding kitty, start letting your partner prepare the cat's food and actually feed the meal. Kitty might not …
