Wide Awake



This song resonates with every fiber of my being at the moment:


Sometimes things in life happen to us that we would never expect. They come out of left field like a dump truck, run you over, and don’t hit the brakes to see if you survived or are even okay for that matter. This is my life right now. I am okay, or I will be. No need to send me a thousand emails or private messages, please. There are just some things people have to deal with alone. This is one of those things and definitely one of those times. 

I don’t have the answers for what happened. I’m not sure I ever will. My heart aches and my soul is on fire.  However, I refuse to let this define me. I refuse to succumb to the sadness.

The anger.
The pain.

I choose to be happy because we all have to make choices. 

I choose to not let this or anything else stand in my way. 

Am I being cryptic? Yes, because what happened to me is just that, it happened to me. This is my fight. 

I plan to win.

P.S. I love this quote right now: The most powerful weapon on earth is the human soul on fire. - Marshal Ferdinand Foch

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…

#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…
