I Finished THIRD in the Shorty Awards for Literature!

Thanks for all the votes.  The Academy are judging them between now and 3rd March, so I could end up in a higher or lower position, but I am definitely a finalist, and by their calculations (votes+content) at the close of the voting portion of the awards, I was third.  You know when they say 'the nominees are...'? One of those will be me :)

It has been an exhausting process - less so than for the Ms Twitter contest because we went crazy on that and fewer people were involved, but exhausting none-the-less.  There have been developments through the last couple of months.  I may have a writing-related announcement to make soon.  Keep an eye on the blog.

Thanks again everyone,

Yayyyyy!!! Love the new blog header. Hope you're writing well and keeping warm. Hugs

Congrats. Sorry you didn't jump right up there to number 1, but 3rd isn't anything to be ashamed of either :) This is awesome.

Angie, thanks for your support. You're an angel. :)

Eric...um...thanks. I may still win - they don't finish judging until 3rd of March - but I sincerely hope I don't. Coming in third means I can miss the awards ceremony in New York. If I win, or am the runner-up, it'll be a bit more tricky to miss. I beat JK Rowling and am the only non-published writer in the final. More than good enough for me :)

Doh! Sorry Rebecca. That's me not paying attention to things :) I'm still wishing you luck then. I'm sure you'll stay at least in 3rd. That is so awesome too. How many times in our lives can we say we beat out JK Rowling? :)

Eric: I know. Crazy! It's a bit mad that they want me to fly over to the US for the awards ceremony. My passport's too dusty for that kind of shenanigans.
