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!!

We set up a nice little box for her in a quiet area of the house and she hasn't had any issues since. I really think she is enjoying the fact she gets her own powder room. But, there can be many reasons a kitty starts this type of behavior so I am going to go over the most common ones below.

Here are some of the basic reasons:

1. A recent litter brand change.
Cats are huge creatures of habit and often finicky when it comes to their poop dirt. If you recently changed their litter try going back to the old stuff.   2. The litter isn't deep enough.
Some cats love a lot of litter and are big diggers. If they don't have enough litter (an amount to their liking, not yours) k…

Why Does My Cat Hate My Significant Other?

If you're reading this then I am guessing you've come here because you have a very mad kitty. I am also going to guess said kitty doesn't like your significant other. Don't worry, it happens. Cats aren't like dogs. You can't just tempt them with a little piece of steak and throw a tennis ball to become friends. If you try that your cat is just going to give you the above look and walk away hell bent on destroying your new relationship. Never underestimate kitty, they're smarter than we think.

You might even have adopted a new cat that took to you easily, but just down right dislikes the other person in your life. That's okay. There's something about an immediate bond with a cat. If you get that special moment you're lucky. If your partner does not, maybe some of the following tips can help.

1. Feeding Time:
If you're the only one feeding kitty, start letting your partner prepare the cat's food and actually feed the meal. Kitty might not …
