"Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts."
 ~Sir Winston Churchill

This has been a long time coming. I wrote three books, published them, and then disappeared. Well, sort of disappeared. I became something greater than a writer. I became a mother. For three and a half years I have loved and nurtured a small human being. She is bright, beautiful, and teaches me more about life every day. I love her more than anything else in this world and even though I missed writing full time I knew my place and new purpose in life was to be a constant source of guidance for my daughter. The time has come that she has entered preschool and so, I have time again to delve back into my second passion. 

Writing.

And oh how I have missed the feel of a keyboard under my fingertips. Yes, I dabbled with some paragraphs here and there over the last three years, but time always escaped me. My ideas and characters were pushed to a corner in my mind and told to sit patiently and wait for the right time. The time is finally right. The ideas that were jotted down and stuffed in notebooks have been pulled out and dusted off. I am working on two novels. One (secretly already in it's second draft) is a contemporary YA. The other is a fantasy my mind has created into a twisted version of Sleeping Beauty. 

I am excited. 

So happy to be writing. Enthralled to have the time I can dedicate just for my books and muses. I have missed this part of my life so much. Welcome back, me. Welcome back. 

I will be posting here more as well, now that I have time. I missed you guys.

XOXO

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…
