Award Winning at Last!


It's been a long time coming, but I've finally picked up my first ever Blogger Award. I didn't have time to read the fine print, but I'm pretty sure it's well deserved. I'd like thank everyone who nominated me.

Seriously, I guess it's may way of letting everyone who may have just started noticing my blog that I truly do suck. I have been picking up a lot more followers lately than I can easily handle. I'm so far behind in going back through to see who everyone is that I don't know if I'll ever catch up.

So, if you are a recent follower and  I've not acknowledged you, please be forgiving. I'm struggling managing my time and I'm a bit overwhelmed. I'll catch up.

In the meantime, my short story, er, novelette, is done. I've stamped it with my done stamp and it is over. I read it out loud in it's entirety and think I've knocked out all the little things, like typos and dropped words, that have plagued it.

Of course that hasn't addressed the major problems, like characters behaving like drunken ducks in a cyclone - doing things that no one could ever make sense of. But those sorts of problems mean very little to me at this point. This one is in the bag.

So, I celebrate for a few minutes, then go back to editing my crappy novel.

Hey Rusty! Now that is one hell of a unique award. Sorry, but you now have yet another follower, but it does place you one shy of 100.

Who doesn't love a story about drunk ducks in tornados?!

Congrats on your award! Bravo!

Damn, another one I didn't win.

Congratulations, Rusty. That's a mighty fine award.

Liz said...

I'm right there with you... It's hard to keep up, but we're only in the first week. It'll get better (I hope).

Another Crusader, stopping by.

Wow! I hope to one day earn that award as well.
Also, props on the 100 followers AND having a completed book!

I'm envious of your award. And hey, the finishing of any good project merits celebration. So cheers!

Su said...

This makes me LOL-- my blog sucks, too! Maybe I'll put up a giant "I Suck" banner on the front page to diminish expectations.

Regina said...

Oh Rusty, I don't think that your the worst...we all have our moments. Breathe. We will be here when you catch your breath. :)

Fellow Crusader stopping by. Oh that's freaking hilarious!! I give you permission to completely ignore my blog. :) It gets easier to find the time to see other blogs. No it doesn't. I'm lying. lol

Zan Marie said...

I knew there was a reason you were in Group 13 at the Crusade. ; ) No, seriously, take your time. We're all finding it hard to keep up right now.
