#NowReading Sherry Thomas' The Elemental Mage Trilogy (ARCs)

It all began with a ruined elixir and an accidental bolt of lightning…

Iolanthe Seabourne is the greatest elemental mage of her generation—or so she's being told. The one prophesied for years to be the savior of The Realm. It is her duty and destiny to face and defeat the Bane, the greatest mage tyrant the world has ever known. A suicide task for anyone let alone a sixteen-year-old girl with no training, facing a prophecy that foretells a fiery clash to the death.

Prince Titus of Elberon has sworn to protect Iolanthe at all costs but he's also a powerful mage committed to obliterating the Bane to avenge the death of his family—even if he must sacrifice both Iolanthe and himself to achieve his goal.

But Titus makes the terrifying mistake of falling in love with the girl who should have been only a means to an end. Now, with the servants of the Bane closing in, he must choose between his mission and her life

After spending the summer away from each other, Titus and Iolanthe (still disguised as Archer Fairfax) are eager to return to Eton College to resume their training to fight the Bane. Although no longer bound to Titus by a blood oath, Iolanthe is more committed than ever to fulfilling her destiny—especially with the agents of Atlantis quickly closing in.

Soon after arriving at school, though, Titus makes a shocking discovery, one that makes him question everything he previously believed about their mission. Faced with this devastating realization, Iolanthe is forced to come to terms with her new role, while Titus must choose between following his mother's prophecies—and forging a divergent path to an unknowable future

Yes. Writing is SUPER EASY. All I need is to sit my ass in front of the screen and it will just come to me. I don't even need silence, I don't need to focus, I don't even need to feel or to think. I don't even need to write immediately when inspiration strikes because those ideas, those moods and the atmosphere will return in a snap when I actually do get to write. You're right. I can do my JOB when it's convenient for you. #sarcastichandraised

Till Death Do Us (NOT) Part: 1st Snippet

Till Death Do Us (NOT) Part: 1st Snippet: Seth yawned again and flexed his left hand; it was covered in black ink from his left pectoral to the tips of his fingers, ancient spell...

So, Ugh.

I have been busy. Not busy writing sadly, only managed to come up to 6K words for Camp NaNoWriMo, mainly because since my mom was here, I've been busy doing chores around the house and to help her cook and then doing chores again. When I actually got to rest, I'd just be too tired.

Mom is away now but she'll be back on Sunday. Hopefully, since my sisters will be here also, I can get some slack and have more time to write. But I'm trying to catch up right now. 12 k words to catch up. Yikes.

Boo was attacked by a stray cat and is now at the vet to get stitches. Again, hopefully, we can get him, oh sorry, Boo is actually a girl, her, back on Monday.

Have changed the title to NaNoWriMo novel from Something Wicked This Way Comes to Till Death Do Us (Not) Part. 

Am still thinking over the main arc but the story is coming along, the non-relationship between Darling and Seth intrigues me. So far, there is no romance between them and I'm liking that.

I miss Boo, I'm experiencing empty nest syndrome, of course my other cats are here but not by baby Boo.

Well, haven't been able to read more books either but will have to concentrate on writing for the time being, so, farewell, dear people, must write.

I Moved Again. YES. Again.

On Friday, I was surprised by my mother when she told me that I was going to move to our new house. I think my response was, "what? When? TODAY?"

So, I rushed to pack, I think Boo knows that I was going to leave that he refuses to leave me alone and even climbed on my shoulder as I gather my things. It's like he thought that I was going to leave him alone. 

Anyway, we were trapped in a car for 4 hours on a road that was as long as it was curvy. UGH. 

Having never ridden a car before, Boo was terrified and clung to me while he swiveled his head pretty much everywhere, I think he was feeling sick at one point. But soon, he relaxed enough to sleep on the pillow I brought for him eventhough he still had to have my arms around him. 

(Boo wondering how we were moving so fast)

(Boo, taking a nap break)

(Boo, finally arrived at the new house and chilling)

The house is much bigger and has a really big yard and has three other cats but Boo likes to take naps upstairs with me. The second floor is MY floor, a lot of sunshine and wind so he loves taking naps. 

Because moving and cleaning the house I haven't been writing for NaNoWriMo and only started today. I need to catch up!!!

But, hey, look what I made from scrap yarn!!
