Let's Get Real...



A week or so ago I asked around Twitter and Facebook what people liked to see on blogs. The responses were all different but none of them mentioned "writing blogs". I fear, my friends, the writing blog is a thing of the past. There are just so many out there and let's be honest most of them are boring and dull including mine. If you've been to writing conferences and read at least ten or more writing focused blogs you've seen it all. Am I right? I could be wrong, but I'd rather revive my blog versus watch it go up in flames and turn to nothing more than smoky burnt ash.  The ash that just annoys you when there is a bad fire and it gets all over your car and is a pain to clean off. Yep, that kind and yes, I just went there.

That's what this new blog will be out. I am going to go there. About what you ask? Simple, whatever I feel like. I remember reading from agents saying that to break into the writing world you need every social media outlet possible and you really needed to have a blog. Being the naive newbie author I did exactly as was suggested.  In the beginning it was awesome. Now, I don't even want to look at my blog and I've had to cut back on the social media. I might be a stay at home writer, but even I only have so much time in the day to sit on social networking sites. I can keep up with two, not let's say ten.

What do I like? Twitter! What am I starting to hate? Facebook, but that is a whole different blog post.

So I am just going to be real. I'm going to tell you about books, cats, TV Shows, Movies, and being a new mum. Anything I darn well please and some of it might not be pretty. Corrupt politicians, I'm looking at you! If anything, I hope it will at least be more interesting that what I have been blogging about (or haven't as of late) and at least I will enjoy doing it.

I am told this is so extremely taboo in the "writing world." Well you know what? I'm over following all the darn rules. Life is life people. We only have one and let's enjoy it the way we want. I love writing. It's my passion. I also enjoy blogging. What I don't enjoy is watching my views decrease and knowing people are sitting behind their computer screens yawning into a bored oblivion about some writing tips they're already familiar with. 

And yes, I am about to give birth. Literally, any day now so I may or may not disappear for a week or so. However, while I wait for this child to come out of me (and she's taking her sweet time), I plan to get some posts up and scheduled so they auto post! It can't be that hard right? No, it isn't. I just have to not be lazy about it. See, I am being real in admitting I have been a huge slacker lately. So, I say to myself. Get real Bonnie and get posting in advance!

Touché self…touché!

P.S. If there is something you want me to blog about, please suggest it in the comments. I'd love to give my two cents on any topic =)

  3. This must be "I'm unhappy with my blog" month or something, lol. Because I'm reconsidering an entire revamp as well. Mine will still have a major focus on writing, but I'm going to focus less on the how-to, and more on what I *am* writing.

#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…

Should I Get An Exotic Cat Breed?

He's gorgeous, isn't he? Loki is my 4.5 year old Bengal and I can tell you he is a lot of work, but I knew that going in before I got him. I did endless hours of research on the breed. Talked with multiple breeders that were familiar with their genetic make up and behaviors. I knew he would require a lot and even though I prepared myself, I was still blown away by how much of commitment these breeds are.

All exotic cat breeds require a lot of time and tons of training for both human and cat. Although, even with the training your exotic cat may still not listen or act out. Remember, these cats are breed down the line starting with their exotic father. This means they do still have wild tendencies depending on the filial generation they fall under. Filial generations for most exotic cat breeds are as follows:

F1 - 1st Generation  Exotic cat + Domestic Mother
F2 - 2nd Generation Domestic Father + F1 Mother
F3 - 3rd Generation Domestic Father +  F2 Mother
F4 - 4th Generation  Dom…
