Writer-All-Nighter

4 Oct

If you’re a writer there is a good chance you’ve experienced one or two writer-all-nighters. If your not a writer, think about being up with a baby that’s teething–you know–running a fever, screaming, pooing–the works. Yep, that’s a bit of what it’s like. Except in this case the baby is a laptop.

So this is where I’m at, pulling all-nighters to finish an adult piece that if I’m honset has been more painful to write than when I had my wisdom teeth extracted. Of course, I had a million and one interruptions yesterday during the daylight hours, which is when I prefer to write. But in the world of, ‘Hi, I’m-Rachel-wife-mommy-daughter-wannabe author’, the ‘Hi, I’m daughter’ overruled the weekend with a thousand phone calls and visits from my parents. <–An obvious exaggeration, but what can you expect? I’ve been up all night and I write fiction.

So when was your last all-nighter? (Anything remotely close to up late works too.)

And for those who participated in Friday’s QUIZ, here is a list of Super A+ Blogger WINNERS!!! (Some got all the questions right, and the others are A+ bloggers because of their honesty–the little cheaters. lol.) Grab your blog sticker here and let everyone know how smart you really are!

Our winner is…(followed by a weekend update)

27 Sep

BG: Mom let me pick the winner this morning and I’m really excited to send you Flipped. I hope you like it like we did. (I still don’t know when my book order is coming in but I will make sure Mom puts it in the mail when it does) Oh and Mom decorated the winner thing to look like a tree because in Flipped Juli has a tree that she loves to climb. But Mom says not to tell you any more about the book so that you’ll want to read it.  :-)) Anyway off to school. Hope you liked our first giveaway. (And so you know I commented back to all of the comments I got Friday. It was kind of hard.)

Okay, stepping in here as it’s time for BG to go to the bus stop.

BG: See ya.

And that’s one kid out the door this morning. And congratulations on the WIN Jennifer. Jennifer blogs at Me, My Muse, and I. So if you get the opportunity to stop in and congratulate her on her win that would be great.

That said, while there should have been more writing accomplished in the Gilbert house this weekend, after a slew of unending interruptions I opted for the NO WRITING WEEKEND. I swear on Sunday I sat down a dozen times with my laptop. But after phone calls, running into town, being called for an unexpected favor, which ended in more running, our puppy begging for attention, 3 kids and a husband coming in and out of the room, irritation began to rise instead of word count. As I’m not the type of person to be buried in frustration I decided instead that the writing could wait, because life outside of my laptop could not.

Yep, they LOVE me so much, I can’t get anything done!
