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:


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…
