#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:



1. Line by line edit third Nether Book.
2. Get third Nether Book sent off to editor.
3. Write another 20k on NA sci/fi
4. Blog at least twice a week.
5. Comment on more blogs.

Not sure I will even get to number 3 like I had planned. This third and final Nether book is draining me, but it is worth it. It will be all wrapped up this week, minus edits, and sent to the editor no later than May 24th. 

Like I said it is hard saying goodbye to a series.  Really hard. Both emotionally and writerly. There are so many things to wrap up. So many character's to finalize their individual parts. That and everything I've been  building up to is finally happening. Dear Lord, it is scary. I love it, though. 

So essentially goals one and two are going well. I may or may not have to skip number three and numbers four and five are a work in progress. All in all I am feeling pretty darn good. =)

Time to get back to writing!

    I'm starting my series, but I'm sure when I end it, it'll be tough to let it go. I think you're handling it well. :)

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…
