Something fun…

My flash fiction title “Norma the Wal-Mart Greeter Meets the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse” is the co-winner of this year’s Meager Puddle of Limelight Award for Best Short Story Title, hosted by jongibbs:

(Darn it, I knew I should have told my husband to go vote for me in the final round. Then it wouldn’t have been a tie.) 😉

On a serious note, though, there is a certain satisfaction in knowing that I tied for first place without asking anybody outright to vote for me, even though it’s possible I could have driven a few more voters to LJ to win outright. I’m just not crazy about doing the whole “hey guyz! go vote for me!!!” thing, even though I know it’s not exactly frowned upon.

At any rate, both of us winners get a copy of Jon Gibbs’ book Fur-Face (which I’d been wanting to read), a coffee mug that says “I are a writer” (sweet!), and either a guest blog post or an interview on his blog. Since I don’t have any astounding ideas for blog posts at the moment, I’ll be taking the interview option. Plus, interviews give me a satisfying illusion of importance. 🙂

(I really should make “Norma” into a series: “Norma the Wal-Mart Greeter Finds the Lost City of Atlantis,” “Norma the Wal-Mart Greeter Meets Cthulhu”…)

Or not. 😀
