I do have one award.  I participated in the "Absolute Write Idol 2005", and out of 308 participants, eleven finalists pieces and sixteen honorable mention pieces were chose.  I was talented enough (lucky enough) to be one to receive an honorable mention, an award I'm quite proud of.  I have a spiffy banner and everything, but I can't seem to get it to load.  If you can see it, then you know what I'm talking about.  If you can't, sorry 'bout that, we've been working on it.


For an author, writing should be like breathing; the writer has no choice.
