#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!

  5. It sounds like you're off to an awesome start.:)

    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. :)

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…

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 …
