A New Year, A New Reality!

Happy New Year!

I hope everyone had a wonderful 2013! I know I took a long break but having a new baby will do that to you. To be honest it was much needed. I have learned so much in the first four and a half months of my child's life. Mostly, I've learned a lot about being a parent. There will be many lessons and stuff to learn as she gets older, but right now I am enjoying each an every second with her and all that she teaches me daily.

As with new life there is always loss. On December 29th, I lost my Grandmother. She was a huge part of my life and I don't think I will ever be the same again. Sure, I will heal as time goes on and the pain won't be as intense but for now the wound is still fresh.

However, that won't stop me, Grandma would want me to keep writing. I have a new project in the works and plan to "attempt" to stick to a schedule. I will be blogging twice a week. Monday and Wednesday are my days that I have chosen to enlighten you all about my life and how real things are in it. Some funny, some sad, and all completely true. I won't lie, I will probably talk about how many times my kiddo barfed on me throughout the week and what my cat broke. <--- True story!

I will also keep Wednesday's as my WIP Wednesday. I love sharing ideas and music with you guys about stuff that inspires my writing.

And since it is technically Wednesday here are two songs I currently have on repeat with this new WIP.

Mecca Kalani -Feel Me

Plumb - Don't Deserve You

WIP Title: The Soulless
Setting: 1888, London - Whitechapel District
My take on Jack the Ripper and the lives he disrupted from his murderous rampage. 
Release Date: Late Spring/Early Summer 2014 

Sounds interesting right?

So, what's your New Year's resolution?

Mine is simple: Better time management when it comes to writing.

Happy 2014!

  1. I'm so sorry for the loss of your grandmother, that has to be rough! One of my grandmothers died when I was barely more than a year old, so I have no memories of her, but my other one is still around and doing (mostly) well currently, so I have no idea of what grief you must be handling right now.

    Your story sounds fantastic, though, and hurrah for the Plumb song! I adore Plumb.

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…
