WIP Wednesday, Internal Editors, and Cool Awards


If I were doing NaNo, I'd be kicked off the team by now. However, I have made some progress on Exposure Therapy. I'm sitting at 2300 words and am almost finished with chapter one. As you've noticed, I've been doing post on beginnings--which of course have been completely self-serving since I'm at a beginning. But this research has also brought out my inner editors in full force. I'm now convinced it's not just one, but a pack of mean girls.
So I'm hoping this week that I can bribe them to go to the mall or something because I need to write without their "help".
Alright, now for some fun stuff. Awards!
First, Dawn over at Plotting and Scheming gifted me with the lovely Best Blog Award. If you're not following Dawn, you're missing out-go follow.
Now for the rules:
1. To accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award and his/her blog link.

2. Pass the award to other bloggers that you have recently discovered and think are great! Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.

I'm going to stick with the rules and select people I've recently discovered.

1. Melane at Chasing the Dream
2. Natalie at Natalie Bahm
4. Tamika at The Write Worship
And then Ash. Elizabeth at From Ramblings to Interviews created a brand new award called the Helpful Blogger Award, which she has passed along to me. I really like the idea behind this one because I think that the support and help I've found from fellow bloggers is one of the best things about being online. Go check out her site!
The Helpful Blogger Award Rules
Include the award logo in your blog or post.
Link to post where you received the award.
Nominate seven blogs that you feel are helpful to others.
Be sure to link to your nominees within your post.
Let them know they've received the award by commenting on their blog.
Share one thing that no one knows about you & quote a sentence from your favorite book.
Alright, in spirit of the award, I'm selecting people that no matter what their post, I always learn something.

1. Susan at A Walk in My Shoes--I know most of you follow her already, but she's always has a helpful tidbit (and she's a great beta reader to me as well)

2. Jennifer at Me, My Muse and I

3. Sierra at Sierra Godfrey

4. T. Anne at White Platonic Dreams

5. Julie Dao at Silver Lining

6. Jody at Jody Hedlund

Okay, now for something no one knows about me. Hmm... I'm so afraid of bugs that, say, if a caterpillar were on my shirt, I would have no hesitation to yank off the shirt and run screaming even if I was in someone's front yard in full view of the street. Not that this ever happened (cough) but just as a hypothetical example.
A favorite quote from a book. That's hard. It's usually something that makes me laugh rather than something that's exceptionally profound. I'll have to think on this one, in the meantime, you can check out my goodreads quotes in the sidebar.
Alright, that's all for today. How's everyone else's WIP going? What are your internal editors like?
