Writers of the Future Honorable Mention

I'm very excited to report that my short fantasy "Strangers Think They Know Me," won an Honorable Mention at Writers and Illustrators of the Future.  You have no idea the amount of self-restraint it's taking not to apply exclamation points all over the place.  

Thank you C.S. for the heads up.  I hadn't checked the blog today because it's an art day.  Or supposed to be.  I'm still setting up and it's already 3pm.  I'm also prepared for editing tonight.  I'm working on a short story that's requiring some serious finesse.  I thought I wrote exactly what it needed yesterday, but by the morning light reality set in and now I have to take it in a slightly different direction.

But art procrastination and editing worries aside, congratulations to all the folks who got an honorable mention, and good luck to the finalists.

It's only one, innocent, harmless exclamation point.  And honestly, that exclamation point may be more eloquent than all the rest of my blah blah blah.

I'd like to thank my mother who gave birth to me, and my cereal for snap, crackle and popping me the idea, and the clear blue sky.

Hoody Hoo!

Congratulations Kami! So did you ever get around to painting?

Give me a call sometime...

Kami said...

Thanks Molly! I think that's the first time I've been called the Bomb, evah! Heh.

Hey Melissa, yeah, I did get around to painting, and I'll do more today before I run off to do errands and write at the Fireside. It's going to be a long, but good, day today.

That's wonderful, congratulations!

Kami said...

Thanks Kai! I got a bunch of editing done today and shipped off a story that had a rewrite request. If the rewrite works, I may have even more exciting news!

Mark Jones said...

Belated congratulations! Way to go. I can say "I knew her when...."

Kami said...

Thanks Mark! It's not technically belated, as I haven't even gotten the certificate yet.

Soon my used paperclips will be worth hundreds of dollars each to collectors.
