In Which an Award is Given…

So, I got a late start this morning. Woke up, puttered around the house, ate some oatmeal (breakfast of champions!), and finally plopped in front of the computer to check my e-mail and start on the day’s writing.

Only to find that the day’s writing would be delayed because I have a whole mess of e-mails to respond to.

Because people are e-mailing to congratulate me on winning the 2007 Cybil Award.

In the monosyllable of Keanu: Whoa.

I’m more than a little bit stunned. First of all, my fellow nominees were some stiff competition. Second of all, honestly, I just don’t think of myself as an award-winning kinda guy.

But this is really, really cool. I am grateful to the folks who nominated me and to the judges. I’m truly honored to be in such terrific company as my fellow nominees and the winners in the other categories. Those are some mighty, mighty names.

A big “thank you” to everyone involved!

Check out the announcement and the complete list of winners on the Cybils website.
