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.

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 …
