Thanksgiving and a Pushcart Prize Nomination
"No, Mom. I was nominated."
"It's a big honor."
"Uh huh." My mother has won prizes herself, so she's not easily impressed. Actually she was really pleased for me. I'm just playing with you.
Thanksgiving is a great day to nominate people for prizes. The Pushcart Prize is given to outstanding stories published by small presses. I'm having a sweet and thankful day, so I want to share it with you. I would also like to share this moment with three writer/friends of mine who were nominated with me. Congratulations, Julie Innis, Sheldon Lee Compton and Bill Yarrow. You are all INCREDIBLE.
If you have a chance, stop by Blue Five Notebook and give Sam Rasnake and Michelle Elvy some love. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.
I must be off,
