Rook update and stuff

Chapter 38 of Rook is now up. Hope you enjoy it. :)

And I'm allowing myself a squee moment, so if you'd rather not be forced to listen to my self-indulgence, just skip the following...

I hate tooting my own horn. It makes me extremely uncomfortable and generally speaking, I think I pretty much suck at it. That's the primary reason why I don't generally announce when I get nominations or awards for my writing. However, the announcement of the FMYA results yesterday is making me change that philosophy for just today. Two reasons why: I have a soft spot for the FMYA awards (they were the very first award I was ever nominated for nearly a year ago and I still don't know who did it) and because of the award I got.

I don't consider myself a writer. I'm going to say that straight up, and I'm totally serious about it. If you ask me, I will always call myself a storyteller, and it just so happens that my current method of expressing it is through Spuffy fanfic. In the past, it's been through other ways---a couple years of video editing, a bit of film production, writing of plays and screenplays, and acting since I was 14. Given the choice of how I'd make my living, writing wouldn't even be my first option. It doesn't mean I don't enjoy it, or that it doesn't rate as one of my favorite means of expression. I do, and it does. But I'm more than aware of my limitations in this medium, and I have huge respect for the fanfic writers I can see who surpass me in these areas. It's one of the reasons why I started the LLG awards.

So color me shocked and surprised and absolutely delighted when I see the list of FMYA winners, and I have somehow snagged Best S/B Writer. The other winners are tremendous---kantayra, dettiot, onetwomany, echidnas_pen, kallysten, moxie_fic, aj_hofacre, and tons of others I read and adore. To be included in such company means a lot to me, and I just want to congratulate all of them for all their hard work. The awards you've won are more than deserved. :) And I'm going to silently squee all day that others have enjoyed my work enough to honor it so.

Now aren't you glad you bothered to read this cut? Ha. Not. ;)
