You Nominated Me…You Really, Really Nominated ME!

THIS = ME.

floored


WOW!  I am so honored that many of you nominated my work for a variety of awards.  I’m trying to be calm and quietly gracious; however, I feel like jumping up and down like a crazy person is the appropriate reaction!

But I’m still like this:

    It would have been criminal if you weren’t nominated and I would have accused the awards people of Buckner-ing it up alá True Blood Season 6 finale.

    I know! I was slack-jawed. Still am. The only thing that will help me to shut my mouth is the sushi I plan to have for lunch. (One must chew.) 🙂

    Thanks. I was so amazed when I woke up this morning and saw them all! My mouth got wider and wider and my hubby was like–“What’s up w/ you? You look happy and you’ve not even had coffee yet…. Are you sick?”
    LOL

    lol. Well, you definitely deserve it. You are, hands down, one of my favorite authors of FF. I am so grateful that you are so generous as to share your wonderful talent and imagination with us poor schmoes who don’t have any of our own. Good luck in the voting!

    You are most welcome, and there is certainly no author more worthy; not just for the excellent body of work you’ve produced, but for its quality. Not only is the quality impeccable, it’s also amazing how you ‘change’ the voices of the characters in each individual story. I know that for you, as a writer, this is incredibly difficult and as an editor, it’s one of the things we look for when editing stories by repeat authors. One needs a talent such as yours to do this very thing, and you are simply splendid at this task as a few of the nominated writers are as well.
    I loved your channeling of Sally Fields…just too funny & really had me laughing out loud!
    I wish you the best of luck in the contest and certainly wouldn’t be at all surprised if you needed to add more banners to your home page!
    Peace & Laughter,
    msb

    Thanks. I was amazed by how many of my stories were nominated. It made be feel great. I went over and voted, and it was a killer. So many wonderful stories by authors I admire. I love how the voting is open and the organizers allowed for so many nominees. It’s like a celebration of our fanbase even more than an awards competition! I’m proud to be “sitting” next to the others in my categories.
    Again, many thanks for your continued support.
    Best,
    Kat

    I know what you mean! It is kike a celebration! There are so many stories on the ballots that I follow/followed. It was so difficult to choose because there are just so many wonderful writers! It took awhile, but now I’ve got the process down & can’t wait for tomorrow to vote again!
    I’m really forward to all of the results!

    *snort* No fear…there’s plenty back there and if I just “had” to, I suppose I could “force” myself to eat, like, a cake or something and it’d all be back in 2 blinks or less…
