Write Motivation Update & Dracula?

1. Line by line edit third Nether Book. (Currently in progress and almost done).
2. Get third Nether Book sent off to editor. (Gets sent out next Friday).
3. Write another 20k on NA sci/fi  (not happening this month)
4. Blog at least twice a week. (Trying)
5. Comment on more blogs. (Failing)

Pretty much my whole world revolves around getting this last Nether book sent off to the editor on time. Everything else is falling on the back burner. It doesn't help that I am under a lot of other "personal" stress and have total baby brain. My lack of concentration and focus is ridiculous. But I am trying and that is what matters, right?

In other news while I was unfocused and procrastinating on the Internet I came across this:


Excuse me while I scream like a fan girl. First off when I decided to portray one of my vampires off Mr. Hotness himself, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, I had no idea about this show. Not until I stumbled across it today. And I was like WHAT!! WHAT!! Let me just say that, I love you NBC. The same creators of Downton Abbey are doing this show so I have very high hopes. Heck, even if it sucks I will be watching it. I am such a huge Dracula fan. It was the one horror story I wasn't terrified of as a child. I have so many different versions of the book and read it at least twice a year, still. So one of my most favorite actors and favorite legends are coming to the small screen means my life is complete. I mean, I honestly think Jonathan knows me from some past life or something. He was Henry Tudor (another one of my obsessions growing up) in the Tudors and now Dracula...you Sir are a wonderful man!

Who is watching this one with me this fall? We should start a Dracula tweet chat. =P

  1. *gasps* I haven't heard of this! Oh, what a tantalizing teaser. I, too, enjoy Jonathan. He's cast perfectly in that role.

    Good luck with your edits. I had baby brain bad during my pregnancy. I was lucky I could remember my own name!

  3. Oh, I'll be watching. Fanning myself all the time no doubt. I'm rather partial to our Mr. Meyers.

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…
