Wednesday Update #7

Thanks to the Utah League of Writers Conference I have a new take on my book. I was starting over because I was unhappy about my inciting incident, but this conference made me change my mind about that. So now I'm going back to my old manuscript and hammering it out again, but this time with a more positive outlook.

Onto this weeks business!

I've gotten two awards this week -- the first is the Versatile Blogger Award from Elizabeth Varadan at Her Fourth Wish Blog.

The second is the 7X7 award from awesome blogger friend Kelly over at Writtled.

Since I've already done the Versatile award several times and you had endure the ten facts about me last week I'm only going to be highlighting the 7X7 award. With this award we are suppose to talk about a blog post that matches the description given to us.

Most Beautiful: First Steps - This is the story of what got me into writing, and every time I read it I am inspired again.

Most Helpful: Probably Editing tools becasue a lot of us critique and we don't even know what is at our finger tips.

Most Popular: My most popular post is actually a guest post from another blogger, so I'm skipping that and going to the next most popular one written by me, and that one is my story Premonition from the campaign challenge. Thanks guys for making that #1!

Most Controversial: I would say Inadequate becasue in that one I totally beat myself up and basically called myself worthless. Which I know is not true, that's just how I felt.

Most Surprisingly Successful: I'm going to say the meme Writing is like... becasue I wasn't really expecting a response and it's in my top five most viewed posts. Pretty Cool :)

Most Underrated: I wrote the post Gone with the ending as newbie blogger (a post about book-to-movie adaptions) , but I still really like it :)

Most Prideworthy: Probably my flash fiction about Motherhood. I wrote it on mother's day and it is a perfect testament to how my daughter was at the time.

Alright folks, that's it! Rather than passing these on I want to know what post of yours you want me to read. (excluding today's) If you tell me, I'll hop on over and leave you some comment love :)

Party. Here. Friday. I'm giving away a few books and a critique so you won't want to miss it!

What a neat award to get you looking back over all you've done. Amazing posts!

Jessie Humphries said...

This post must have taken you a lot of time and reflection. You have done so much! You rock.

Congrats on your awards!

I'm so happy you're going back to your old manuscript! When you first announced you were starting over, I didn't want to say anything, but I couldn't understand why in the world you were doing that! I loved your first chapter! I know crit feedback can bring you down (well, at least it does me), but you just have to keep telling yourself, NO ONE writes a perfect first draft (or second or even third). It takes months to get a manuscript to the point where you're happy with it :o) Good luck with your revisions! :o)

Congrats on your Awards ... That was a fun one, classifying your posts. It's so interesting how different topics evoke different reactions from the readers.

I love this award. It gives me a chance to read what you, as the writer, are most proud of :-)

Congrats on the award. Went back on looked at Motherhood, loved it!
Oh, and happy to hear to have a new love for your MS ;0).

As for my posts, I guess it would Songspiration Thursday-My Dad and Johnny Cash. I love that one.

Can't wait until Friday!

Shannon Lawrence said...

Trying this again since I got some bizarre error!

I'm glad you're inspired to pull out an old project and hit it again. Good luck with that, and congrats on your awards!

Elliot Grace said...'s always refreshing go back and review ancient scribblings, asking oneself, "Did I really write that? Not bad...not bad at all!"

Congrats on the awards ;)
