    Nominated for the People's Book Prize!

    Admin - feel free to move this thread if it's not for this sub-forum.

    Hey, you fine scribbly folks. Had a surprising email from my publisher the other day telling me they've nominated my Burns tribute poem Tam O'Shatner for the People's Book Prize. As with all my stuff, some of you diamonds helped me with a few bits and pieces, so thanks very much for your assistance in battering it into shape. Anyhoo, if anyone would like to cast a vote for the book my way, and help propel me to literary plaudits and critical acclaim, just click the link. Gratitude!

    She lost herself in the trees,
    among the ever-changing leaves.
    She wept beneath the wild sky
    as stars told stories of ancient times.
    The flowers grew toward her light,
    the river called her name at night.
    She could not live an ordinary life,
    with the mysteries of the universe
    hidden in her eyes....

    Congratulations. It must feel good to win a prize (or be nominated). Better still for a novel. But it is as if a good stepping stone on the path to furthering your career goals. And you followed your instincts without reading critics' comments most likely. Without you having probably paid attention to the criticism. Except for beta-readers maybe. That proves that when you write what you want and have a passion for, you can succeed without worrying about what the critics have said what is good and what is considered bad writing.

    I would follow as in believe in the words of good moral leaders. Rather than the beliefs of oneself.
    The most difficult thing for a writer to comprehend is to experience silence, so speak up. (quoted from a member)

    And we all knew you when you were a nobody.
    Wait, who are you again?

    Keep up the hard work.
