VIDEO BATTLE: Bikini vs. One Piece and more!

Happy Friday to all! Lets bring the sunshine to those who have none, let the snow melt away and the fresh flowers bloom. I'm glad to know that the week is over and the weekend can begin!

Real World:
Weekend plans do you have any? Mine is pool time if it's nice out, girl time if time allows, definite hang out time with the hubs and tons of really bad food because we're both too lazy to cook with all the crazy hours we have endured over the last few months! Glad to know that Monday we get evenings with one another! Woohoo!!

WIP World:
Current status - Revising
Still moving steadily along, about a thousand words a day, they never tell you that most of your revisions are really rewrites... at least if you're a panster like me. Then again maybe it really is just me! I am still very much enjoying the process and along the way learning a whole lot about myself!

Blogging World:
My schedule is still working at a great pace. Each Sunday I write up my posts for the week and then copy and paste each day for the appropriate slot! So far I've been very successful, and I'm hoping it continues! Let me know if there is something you aren't loving so I can change it!

Blog Comments:
Working on it! I am trying to make it around to everyone on the blogosphere but it is so hard to do with 400+ wonderful people following me, but I want you to know I try my very best and I appreciate all the love you give me!!! You comment I comment and then some!! Thanks for the love!

VIDEO BATTLE
This week we have a few newcomers to the game and I'm very excited to have them join us in the fun! I have been looking forward to this each week and I think so have others so without further ado let the summer fun begin!!

Hahahaha! That was great!

And you're not the only one that apparently rewrites rather than revises.

Susan Fields said...

Love your video! Too funny!

Have a great weekend eating lots of bad food. :) I hope you get loads of time with hubs!

That's great that you write all your blog posts for the week on Sunday. I write mine the night before. I've been meaning to try to get a few posts ahead, but it never seems to happen.

JustineDell said...

Hahahahahaha! I always wondering which one guys prefer...and why. Great, Jen!

Creepy Query Girl said...

A one piece that can come off with the pull of a string- brilliant idea!:) I am SO sorry but I completely forgot about my video * creepy looks down at her feet, ashamed.

The Alliterative Allomorph said...

That was so funny! So glad you did two men! Variety! whoo-hoo!

~Nicole Ducleroir~ said...

Hilarious video -- love the expressionless dialog! Best of luck revising. Sounds like we're the same. In fact, I often joke that I'm not a writer, I'm a rewriter!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Rachel Roushey said...

Sorry Jen, I wasn't able to work on a video this week, but please let me know what next week's video contest will be.

Stina Lindenblatt said...

He he about the wip. Even if you outline, there's tons of rewrites involved still. Okay, maybe not as many.

Woo hoo. You're at 450 followers now. Not much longer and you're at the big 500. So obviously nothing needs changing on your blog. :D

Have a great weekend, Jen!

Christina Lee said...

Weekend plans--hopefully to just be outside if the weather holds up. Off to click on videos!!

Matthew Rush said...

Can't watch at work but I'm sure it's awesome.

One thing: your blog has not been showing up in my dashboard lately. I see you posted this at 6:28 AM, which is right about when I start reading so I have no idea why ... I'll be looking into it because I think I've missed commenting on your blog all week for some stupid reason!

Karen Amanda Hooper said...

lol. A one piece you can remove with one hand. Classic.

My cousin will be in town this weekend so we're gonna hang at Disney on Sunday. That's my exciting plans for the weekend.

And of course, try to get some writing done.

Candyland said...

Hahahaha! Holes and slits. "Sounds so unappealing!"
Too funny!

Joanne said...

This weekend ... a little writing, and lots of gardening. I just put in the veggie garden last week, so I'll be pampering it a little bit. Happy Friday to you :)

Jaydee Morgan said...

Great video as always :)

Good luck with your revisions. Up here, this is our May long weekend so I'm looking forward to some much needed time off. I hope to get a lot of writing (and a lot of golf) in this weekend.

Shannon said...

Your video was awesome, Jen! You rock! :)

Have a great weekend!

Clara said...

I just love you, girl! I too have HUGE rewrit...i mean edits, and I do them all the time...unbelievable, but I do feel im getting closer to the final line...

And boy, am I loving this video contest or what? I keep forgetting to subscribe,dammn! Will send an email this week, have to!

T.J. Carson said...

"Where with one hand I can take it off" haha. That's the best part ;) love how guys are arguing over it!

HEY AND I GOT MY VID TO WORK, IT'S UP ON MY BLOG NOW!

Zoe C. Courtman said...

AH the video battle!! That was great - and I love the idea!! Thanks for sharing :D

Portia said...

Hey, 1,000 words a day is fabulous :-) Rewrites are so painful. I always wonder, am I helping or hurting?

That's a great idea to write your posts on Sundays. I'm a former magazine editor, so I love the idea of working ahead ...

Elana Johnson said...

I am put to shame by what you do. I'm trying to keep up with everything, but let's face it. I'm dropping stuff right and left.

Have a great weekend -- we're having a big bowling party!

Lydia Kang said...

Wow, what a list! Great job. And that vid is soooo funny!

Lindsay (a.k.a Isabella) said...

Heehee. Great video.:)

Good luck with the revisions. Don't worry about being a pantser, I am too.So I'm with you on the rewrites. :)

Karen Lange said...

Happy weekend:)

Carolyn V. said...

Whew! Look at you go Jen! You are doing so much. And the vid is so funny.

This weekend, I'm hankering down on the revisions. Have a great weekend!

sarahjayne smythe said...

Hee! I love xtranormal. And your weekend plans sound divine. Enjoy and have fun. :)

Jemi Fraser said...

Life is nutty again around here. This time of year is always crazy. I'm hoping to find some relaxation time this weekend!

Corra McFeydon said...

Wow! You're a busy writer! I can't imagine blogging seven days a week and commenting upon 400 blogs - on top of writing. Best of luck on all that! :)

Good to meet you.

MT said...

Writing everything on one day, then cut and paste - cool. Why didn't I think of that? Are you one of those super organized people? Have a great weekend. :)

Angie Paxton said...

Jen, I hope you enjoy every second of your weekend! I'm glad your revisions are going so well. Loved the video! So funny! Thanks for the laugh.

Olive said...

Glad to hear that the re-writes are coming along. It sounds like you're a busy woman! Also, I'm impressed at how often you post on your blog, wish that I could be as dutiful. I must try and take a leaf out of your book.
P.S. Thanks for visiting my blog!

That video is hilarious!
I love the accent!!!
Have a lovely weekend.

LOVE!

Talli Roland said...

Hope you're having a great weekend with the hubs, Jen! :) Can't believe you write up all your posts on one day - how organised! If only I could do the same...

Talei said...

:) Hi Jen, Today I've been sipping on a drink and enjoying the sun outside, BBQ time! WIP tomorrow. BTW I love that you write you blogs on Sundays ready for the week - such a great way to keep on track!! :)

Eva said...

I love the update. Real world/WIP world. Sometimes don't you find them mixing? Today I was asking someone something and instead of saying a friends name I said the name of one of my characters in my book. I think I must be way too consumed in it lately.

The video was great this week...it reminds me, I better get bathing suit shopping.

Slushpile Slut said...

Nice idea about doing all your posts as drafts for the upcoming week!!! Have no idea why that thought did not occur to me...And I so want to do the Video Battle but I don't have a clue how to..Looks fun though!!

Jackee said...

You're going to get all that done?? Seriously, I think you might be able to run circles around me. Good job with your productivity! I'm so glad you joined me on the May Scramble.

And the video... too funny!

Kimberly Franklin said...

You are doing so much better at keeping up with your blogging than I am. Things have been crazy busy and I just can't seem to keep up. I'm hoping everything will start to slow down soon. :)

Can't wait to SATC2!! :)

T.J. Carson said...

Hey Judgey :) I have your JUDGE badge for you!!!!! I hope you like the design!!!!! Put it up on your profile so pplz know how beast you are!
