Musical Muse

Where words fail, music speaks. ~ Hans Christian Andersen

Being a writer I am often driven by music. I can't live without it. Here are some of my new and old favs on repeat for my two current WIPs:

I knew this guy was talented when I saw him on Glee and this song gave me chills the first time I heard it. Wow. Just...wow. The lyrics fit my two contemporary YA MC's perfectly. One of them suffers from mental illness, you might get that once you hear this song and see the lyrics. A powerful story about love, loss and the power to over come.

 The words in this one say it all. 

My other WIP is a spin on Sleep Beauty. A twisted fantasy that has Beauty, her prince (but not as you know him) and her dragons. Yes, dragons.

I love Linkin Park and this song really reminds me of Beauty.

I can only find a live version of this song, but it's still a very powerful piece. 

What is currently on repeat on your playlist? I really want to know!!

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:

I have been fostering these two adorable house panthers since they were two weeks old. At around four weeks of age I started to noticed something wrong with the little male's left eye.

I contacted my foster coordinator who had me bring him in so our in house vet could take a look at him. She was a bit baffled at what could be causing it so we tested him for various illnesses/cat diseases and they all came back negative. At four weeks old there isn't a lot we could do except wait and see what happened and how the eye developed. After another week I could tell he didn't seem to have vision in that eye and slowly the entire eye globe started to swell. Well, I woke up last Tuesday morning to this:
The vet had me bring him back in and it was apparent the eye would need to be removed. We did not know if it could be a tumor or glaucoma or what the heck the poor little dude had going on. The only issue was that he was tiny and only 1.5 lbs. Typically it isn't that great to do …
