This post is devoted solely to celebration. In truth, writers probably don't celebrate enough--always focusing on the next hurdle.
Well, SCREW THAT! I'm stoked. The current incarnation of a book I have been working on for YEARS (which has undergone such massive overhauls so as to be completely unrecognizable from its predecessors) just won 1st Place at the League of Utah Writers' Annual Roundup. And since I entered the contest with the hope and desire to win 1st place, how can I do anything but celebrate?
Rock. On. In the world of Sheralyn Pratt, September 18, 2010 was a day of good fortune. I spent the day signing at B&N with other phenomenal authors, ran to the award ceremony, and WON!
Yes, I understand that no one is as excited as I am. That follows logic, but I just want to make it very clear that I haven't been this pumped for a while.
So, thank you, League of Utah Writers. Your award couldn't have fallen into more giddy hands :)
