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.

#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:
