I don't know if any of you regularly visit the Year of the Nodpots - the unofficially official Nodpot blog - but last week they had a poll to see who you thought would win Disresponsible Nodpot of the Year 2007. The candidates were moi, Valpot, Inkpot, Sparkie (?) and other. Valpot and Inkpot tied for first place while I ended up with second place and 20% of the vote.
WHAT IS GOING ON?
Has everyone forgotten that I am the most productive Nodpot? I published a book last year, having never written before, and submitted it to 15 agents. This year I have already published my second book, waiting on release for my third, have my fourth book scheduled for December publication, and what about my fantastic seminar at the Fight to Write Conference, not to mention my So you want to be like Mungo? competition? My books have been voted best reads of the month THREE times already this year on the Year of the Nodpots. How can anyone say I am not worthy to win DNOTY 2007?
Of course, I'm not making a song and dance about this because I don't need to win DNOTY 2007 to feel validated. After all, I have my books, critical acclaim, achievements, winnings and fans while the others have - well, let me see - nothing.
