And SHEEEEEEEE's OUT!
Oh, it's just part of the process... From everything we could tell, the YA category in the Amazon contest this year looked the most densely populated, and since 400 were picked from EVERY category, that means YA is where the competition was stiffest... My pitch was as good as I could make it...
Oh, I could engage in conspiracy theories... (I did notice VERY few H names made it through YA... stingy scorer? could be... but I might have BENEFITED from NOT being in that group the last two years... there is always some chance to it). I have read a couple YA that made it in... and they are good, but they are also qualitatively different... maybe a little perkier?
So I spent a good part of yesterday pouting a bit... (no mention of big girl panties, please... you know my feelings on pants)
|One, two, three... UP!|
I know I am in good company, as I had some talented friends ALSO knocked out...
Okay, over that.
TODAY really ought to be celebrating our talented friends who are IN.
Leigh Moore with Rouge!
Carolyn Abiad with Burnt Amber
Theresa Milstein with Sorceress Sisters
And also to some longtime ABNA friends:
Janet Oakley with Timber Rose
Sue Maynard with Suffer the Fury
Becky Kyle with Ms. President
Lisa Koosis with The Road of the Dead
Dwight Okita with The Hope Store
Sylvia Jefferson with The Agreement
Diana Wilder with The City of Refuge
Robert Leland Taylor with Holy Toledo and the Virgin Shirley
(okay, confess... who snorted when you saw Robert's title?) I'm sure there are bunches more who made it. I go a little cross-eyed looking at lists... and I have a few friends I only know by first name.
So lets make a toast to these fabulous friends and the others who pass on and call it good. May they keep progressing!
In Other News:
Eating stuff going good... was down 11 pounds at the 6 week weigh-in (Tuesday).
Making polishing progress...
This is good... always good to have a bite of humble pie now and then...
And that is what I can manage today... so there...
Oh... and happy Valentine's Day... But please only PRETEND to massacre people in honor...
