life begins - me

SQUEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

*points at icon*

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

INAP is nominated for best archive and best character/shipper site, and Crimson Regret is up for best dark/angst and best het fic!

I'm literally bouncing in my seat!

I'm really excited about this, it's my first nomination outside of WKA and although I didn't nominate myself there (or here!) there was still the feeling that since they were my awards then my own nomination was lesser somehow. Does that make sense?

Anyways, I'm still very excited about this!

Bizarrely enough, I was listening to an interview with Michael Morpurgo (the current Childrens Laureate) on the radio yesterday and he was asked if awards mattered to him - his reply was "the first one does." His reasoning being that up until he received his first award he felt that he was struggling to be recognised, but after that his sense of worth as a writer was constantly re-affirmed because he knew that at least someone thought he was good enough. Sweet thought isn't it?

life begins - me

Random postage...

Was planning on coming home tonight to watch Farscape: Peacekeeper Wars - part 2 which I was downloading overnight. Download complete, yay, file name invalid, boo.

Sigh, so I'm going to have to wait for another download to see it. Ah well.

Anyways, two things - smileawhile and acrazywench? I've got something to ask you guys about Serenity, give me a shout if you're around?

Other thing - isn't this just the coolest icon ever? nimori has made a couple of them for those of us who were as obsessed with hitting refresh as I was... *grin*

(Plus, still grinning from the nominations!)
