But seriously y’all, I truly am blown away by all of you.
The You Want Blood Awards winners were announced today and I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate all of the other winners, as well as thank the ones behind it all who put in so much work, only so a schlub like me could have pretty new banners.
The Authority Panel
I won way more than my fair share, but the amount of encouragement and support I’ve gotten from all of you in my silly little secret writing hobby is just…
For realsies…MORE than my fair share.
But the one that gets me the most verklempt is this one:
Not only for what it stands for (which is mind blowing on a whole other level), but because of who it stands for. Angela/EricIzMine was such a fixture in our little fanfic community. A force of nature to be reckoned with. Her stories made me laugh. They made me cry. They made me see what went into making a good story great and drove me to strive to do better in my own.
To be associated with the likes of her, whose talent and imagination far exceeded that of many published authors I’ve read, in any way is more humbling than I could ever put into words.
I am truly honored and I thank you all.
