I posted a great big ol’ missive earlier in the day, but I couldn’t resist logging on with some good — no, make that GREAT — news that just came winging through my telephone:
Congratulations, long-time reader Amy Fisher, for winning the Memoir/Nonfiction Book category of the Pacific Northwest Writers’ Association’s literary contest!
Everyone, please join me in a big round of applause for Amy — and for all of those good writers who keep plugging away until their work is recognized. It CAN be done, and hooray for everyone with the courage to put her work on the line to be judged.
I was not at tonight’s ceremony (for reasons that render a member of the Author! Author! community’s winning an award that I won a few weeks before I started this blog all the sweeter for me personally, I must admit), so I do not know how our other 6 nominees fared. Please, folks, let me know, so we can all jump up and down for you, too.
