For your sake, I hope they are better at sticking to their announced dates than Albedo1. I'm still waiting on an announcement that was due at the "end of April." And the one before that was three months overdue...

Ah well. Didn't win but Stewart Horn winning is still awesome. He's in my writing group and it's a cracking story.

I was rooting for you, Cam. My story was long-listed, but didn't make it into the final cut, so I was hoping some from F-F would win. But, it's cool that you know the person who did, and can at least cheer for your friend if you didn't land the award. Regardless, congrats on making the short list!

It takes a sincere and kind spirit to be graceful and supportive when our friends get what we desire. For my part, I am glad you made it so far and look forward to your day in the sun.

I encouraged him to enter in the first place so technically it's a sort of win for me too :p

Regardless, it's a good feeling to be short listed in the first place.

We should all definately enter next year if still eligable!
