Day 3 | The Writing Process + Behind the Scenes

   Since this week has been full of reminiscing about when Emily and I first began our AWGF letters, I was remembering when I wrote the final letters, and where I was at the time. Like most of you already know, we alternated posting the letters on our blogs during the month of January. My mom, sister, and I were spending the month at my older sister's house because she was expecting her fourth bambino. It was a kinda crazy month because not only was I helping watch my nieces and nephew, but I also was approving the It Took a War audio book, and trying to keep up with the AWGF letters. I also wrote 20,000 words of Resist while I was there. I actually got a lot done!

It went something like this .... =)


            For the final installment of AWGF, I knew it was going to be a long letter (I had so much to wrap up!) and I'd need lots of concentration to get the thing done. I didn't start writing it until the day before I was supposed to post it! Talk about procrastination issues. So I situated myself on my sister's futon in her basement encircled by two cats who didn't know what to make of this crazy authoress. I wrapped myself in a blanket, and drank 4 cups of coffee. It was my writing lair.




On the last day of January, my nephew was born! We spent a lot of time snuggling and blogging together. Also, I filmed the AWGF vlog on the day he was born!


     Now onto the blog tour! Today's line up:

  2. Oh dear, I'm very familiar with procrastination myself. Usually, test = study like mad the night before. Only in my case it never turns out very well :(
    You have an absolutely adorable nephew! I commend you for accomplishing that much while surrounded by little nieces/nephews.
    Sad that I missed the letters in January, but that just gets me more excited right now! :)

  3. Okay, 1) you're absolutely adorable and so is your nephew who I have yet to meet. Oh, wait. I still need to meet your other nieces and nephew too. 2) Wow, talk about a throwback to writing those last letters! Funny how we were BOTH in insanely crazy situations at the time! It was a blast, though. I distinctly remember those emails from you basically saying "JAMIE IS HAVING HER BABY I REPEAT JAMIE IS HAVING HER BABY" and then we still went on trucking through our letters. Ah. Good times. Oh, and 3) I stole your idea and told everyone about the crazy time we had vlog-making. Mhm. Good times. ;)
