For reals you guys, and in such wonderful company!

Sumana told me and I thought she was joking but it's REALLY THERE!

Heh. I saw Sumana's comment and wondered if you knew about it.

Congratulations! Didn't you once say that your dream was to win a Tiptree Award someday?

Thank you, dear!

Heh. I saw Sumana's comment and wondered if you knew about it.

Well once I followed her link, read it three times, and picked my jaw up off the floor, I totally knew about it!

Didn't you once say that your dream was to win a Tiptree Award someday?

Feeling entirely ridiculous to say it, yes. But! Today the longlist, tomorrow the WORLD! :rubs hands and cackles:

Congratulations! I didn't even know the list was out.

I'm so jealous!

I'm so jealous!

Jealous enough to get some stories finished and sent out? *evil grin*

It's wonderful, Shweta, and well deserved. I'm thrilled!
shweta_narayan: mangatarshweta_narayan on March 18th, 2010 05:12 am (UTC)
Thank you! I'm so very happy about it :)

Speaking of well deserved, I see there are quite a few SH stories on those lists! I'm thrilled to be one of them, of course, but I do think that says at least as much about you guys as editors as about us as writers :) Which is to say, thank you doubly and congratulations back!

Huge congrats! I thought the Tiptree list was especially awesome this year, and look forward to reading the stuff I haven't read yet.
