I had no idea I was nominated nor that I won until signing in today. This happened at an odd time, too, because earlier today I was thinking of the story, edited it, and decided it wouldn't be a bad piece to try and send off somewhere... and then I read the announcement in my inbox and jumped from my chair.
Thank you, thank you, thank you everyone who voted! I'm honored to be part of the Writersbeat Quarterly. Whoot whoot!
