A Vlog and Ramblings #2

I am probably holed away in my bed typing like crazy for NaNo at the moment, and yet I make a video appearance! If you enjoyed my vlog last time, I assure you the questions are even better this go round. Also, you get another peek into my brain's spontaneity if that's appealing at all . . .



Once again this is Ivy Rose's challenge and I love it! I've really come to look forward to this (so much so that I filmed this like 2 weeks ago). She explains how to do it all in this post, so check it out. Enjoy the vlog and let me know if you're going to participate. I really want to hear your answers to these questions! You have until December 15 and then there will be new questions ;)




Forgive the road noise and camera jolts. I was holding my mom's phone because it has the best video quality, and the outside light is better. I feel like I was a little more myself in this video, though, so hopefully that's a good thing, hehe. Also, here's my video from last round in case you missed it ;)

In the style of last time, I shall do nothing but ramble for the rest of this post. You have been warned.

First, MARTIN HOSPITALITY IS AT THE EDITOR'S! Yep, just let that sink in. It still hasn't for me. And it will be back in my hands soon. I can hardly wait to see what the lovely Kelsey Bryant had to say!! ^.^ Actually, the fact that I've made it this far is what blows my mind. Thank you, God!!! I tore up my handwritten editing to do list to celebrate. I was handwriting lists. That's how bad it was. The computer was no longer good enough.



I also got to meet the lovely Mandy Cave in person last week. We talked cover design (her first) and are moving forward with her amazing talent! I really want to tell you all about it, but I shall refrain. For now, you only get one hint: she's a watercolor artist. ISN'T THAT COOL?! I am so excited to finally be confidant about our vision and Mandy's skill. The day I get to share the cover with you all is going to be so incredible. Now go check out her Facebook page I linked you to. *shoo*

Also, due to some of my awesome friends already completing NaNo a group of us got together to create this celebratory post for Mary Horton. It may have involved bribery and hacking. Seriously, it was SO fun. I hear the unfathomable Katie Grace is to be congratulated today as well! *confetti and pizza* Me? You can track my word count in the sidebar, because no I'm not finished yet :)

If you're reading this and doing NaNo, I applaud you. I cannot do both, so sorry for abandoning all your blogs this month. Are you going to do the vlog? *puppy eyes*

  1. Another vlog??!? GOOD JOB, ABIGAYLE!!! *high fives you* Erk. I want to do a vlog sometime. (I know, I know, I said that last time, but...) AND CONGRATS on your book!!! That is SO EXCITING. Also, another round of applause for participating in NaNoWriMo! I wanted to, but I just didn't feel like I should and would have enough time this month. :P I'm really hoping to do it next year! (And I would *so like* to join you guys in your group! I've heard fun stories from Julia R. about it. ;)) Again, congratulations! Writing and publishing a book is HUGE.

  7. First off, you're adorable! I've been so busy and basically dead in the blogosphere so I didn't see your previous video, but yeah, you're even more awesome in a more personal format. :D
    It's so exciting that you've got your book off at the editor's and that you've gotten so much done for NaNoWriMo! Good luck for the final sprint towards year's end!

  8. This was a lovely vlog, Abi!!! I think vlogs get less scary the more frequently you do them. You seemed more relaxed this time. :)

    And I just have to say that you are soooo beautiful!!! :)
