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!!

Birthday Bliss

I turned thirty seven this past weekend (cringe), but I had a blast doing it!

My husband and daughter made me cards (I prefer these versus bought cards). I love that they take the time to make a card each year, it makes me feel extra special. Although, this year kiddo's car was a "flat card", her words. She didn't want to fold the artwork. I totally get you, mini me.

Saturday I had a kid free day with a friend and we spent hours laughing and thrift shopping. I found some great treasures and even a pair of bright flowery running shorts. I will take a picture of said shorts as they embarrassed my friend and she vowed NOT to be seen running with me at our next race if I wore them. I took that as a compliment and a challenge. =P Later that night hubby and kiddo took me to dinner at my favorite Thai restaurant (they aren't open on Sundays).

Sunday I finally checked out one of those bar/painting shops. Five girlfriends and I drank, laughed, painted and had a great tim…

#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:


Spring Break 2017

Kiddo is only in preschool, but their preschool still had spring break. The teachers needed I break and I can totally respect that. Here are some pictures of our week:

Day One:
Made a homemade chalkboard for outside. I decided on a smaller piece of wood that I could move in and out of the garage and not have to worry about leaving it out all year and deal with weather damage. So far it has been  a huge success but a major pain in the butt to clean. I little cleaning research and I will be golden.

Day 2:
Working in the garden. Kiddo and I love working in the garden and she even planted her own daisies that she is now responsible for. She loves going out to check on them every day (we planted seeds so she is eagerly waiting for them to sprout) and when it is watering day it's sheer bliss for her!


Day 3:
Dance Class (no photos because they are pretty strict about that at her dance studio) and after lunch some good playtime at the park!

Day 4:
We must have partied too hard the first …
