VIVI Nominations

In case you hadn't heard, I've been nominated for a VIVI Award in the category of Best AIM Journal.WOO HOO! THANK YOU! I am soooooo happy and honored to be nominated. I called my journal Talking to Myself because I truly didn't know if I'd have any readers (other than a few friends and family), soooooooo...to not only have readers, but to have readers who like my journal enough to nominate me, when there are so many excellent journals out there...that's truly an honor, and I want to thank you, everyone of you, who voted for me in the nominations. I'm going to steal a line from one of my favorite writers, Jodi (Have You Lost Your Mind/Looking Beyond the Cracked Window), who said, "being nominated is just as if I had won". She's right, and I couldn't have said it better (which is why I'm stealing her line, giving her credit, of course). ;p


Congratulations to EVERYONE who was nominated, in all categories...and if you’re reading this and weren’t nominated this year, well, congratulations to you too, because nominated or not, all of us are writers...every one of us who takes the time to put our thoughts on paper, for ourselves and anyone who might come across our words...

Here’s a link to the other journals in my category as well as a link to the VIVI Awards page.

Hi Emmapeeldallas !
Well im maybe laptop challenged at the moment (it finally went into the repair shop today sheeesh !) but its not stopping me getting on here to congratulate you and say thanks for everyones comments (im at present sitting once again in a sweaty basement internet coffee shop in a rainy Glasgow ) .
Its sooo true what both you and jouell said ....just being able to write freely in a journal alone is a prize alone i find worthless far less to think people a. actually read it or b. even like it ! hehe
Good luck and hopefully i'll be back soon ! x

I was perusing your journal and when I got looked over on your side bar and I was shocked to see my name on your list of favorite sites. Thank you so musch I am trully flattered...you do not know how excited this makes me...it is like I have ARRIVED! As a writer once said, "You will know when you have "found your voice as an author." I am so excited to be appreciated by a peer; I can barely describe the feeling ...suffice it to say their are tears in my eyes as I write this ...it is an achievement ... not unlike an A+ achieved many years ago in school...Love, Courtenaymphelan
