And the winner is . . .

Not me, but I did have my first name-calling this weekend at the Jambalaya Writer's Conference. Honorable mention (which means I came in second or third) for novel excerpt (1800 words).

Unfortunately, I missed it because I've been ill for the past five days. So I'll have to wait another day to hear my name called in recognition for my work - which as you writers know, means a lot in this solitary endeavour.

Very cool, Dayle.

Sorry you're ill. So many are, including my husband. Praying for you.

Janet Rubin said...

Do you want me to call you names? I will if you want me to:)

Feel better.

Todd said...

dohhhhhh - Janet beat me to the punch!

I hope you're feeling better man.

I think I've finally reached the age where I need to start going to a doctor instead of just sweating it out.

Hey, congrats!

Sorry you've been sick. Me too. I blame my kids.

Dayle James Arceneaux said...

Yeah, Mark.

I can't wait to have kids so I can blame stuff on them too.

Janet and Todd, give me your worst. I've been called names by better people than ya'll.

You go, Mr. Arceneaux. Hope you're feeling better by now. : )

Janet Rubin said...

Hey, I haven't post on MY blog in a whole week either! Your slacking eases my guilt. Thank you, dear brother:)

Dayle James Arceneaux said...

Glad to help, Janet.

And I thought my being sick for two weeks had no higher purpose:)

Janet Rubin said...

Oh. Still sick?? I GUESS I'll give you some grace. I just posted on my blog finally. (at least I never did call you any names:)

Kay said...

whoa - dude! Still sick. I keep checking back here to see if you are alive. At least you left a comment, so we know you are!

Congrats on getting mentioned, too. That's cool to be mentioned with honor!
