life begins - me


So by about 11 o'clock this morning I was completely scunnered with the huge daunting task that was getting on top of the White Knight Awards for Xander-centric fanfiction. There was no way I was going to abandon it half-done but I was on the verge of saying screw it all and just update the nominees page.

I took a break, spent some time with the niece and nephew, went on a sugar high (very.very bad idea with the high blood sugar thing) and then came home and forced myself to email every single nominee personally. It was a chore, I'm not going to lie, I should have had a system in place before the launch, but I had no idea there would be so much interest in the first week. I've come up with a system now, and it seems to be working (more or less) but I was still breathing a sigh of relief when I hit send on the last one.

And then the replies started coming in. People saying thanks, people posting to lists that they were so happy to be nominated, and then this one, which makes it all worthwhile:

Oh my goodness! This is all more exciting than I could possibly tell you

Something about that was so contagiously excited that I've found my enthusiasm again! Thank you veggiebelle for helping me remember why I love doing this again!

And also, thank you to the person who nominated What A Difference A Day Makes for best unfinished fic, I'm incredibly flattered but have no hope of winning against the other fics in that category! (I should probably point out that I cracked open a couple of beers to celebrate so I'm slightly tipsy now...)
