Wondering what the above text is about? Well, I had a nice surprise today. Blogger Alienora Taylor nominated me and The Writer's Drawer for a Moments Matter award, at her blog post Award. While I'm not sure I "dig" the Moments Matter site (the idea seems to be a publicity stunt to sustain the snowball effect by having each nominee nominate new "awardees" and thus attract as many visitors as possible to the site), it's certainly flattering to be mentioned by Alienora, along with so many illustrious other bloggers and writers who have influenced her life.
But now I have to make an acceptance speech and that's floored me. I will say this, however: I am not The Writer's Drawer. The Writer's Drawer is what you, the writers, have created; I am just the catalyst. With your stories, essays, poems, memoirs, travel pieces, book reviews and guest blog posts, you have amused, touched, inspired and enthralled readers. Without you, The Writer's Drawer would be nothing. So if anyone deserves an award it is you writers, the several dozens of you, who are too numerous to mention by name. It is you who have enriched The Writer's Drawer and it is to you that I offer the award.
