My Golden Pen Award Acceptance Speech
Persona Paper writer MelissaE has set a nice challenge in which creative writers are to imagine they have won a prestigious literary award, the Golden Pen (which is fictitious). Here is my acceptance speech.
I am deeply honoured to be the latest recipient of the Golden Pen, to go with my Golden Arm, Golden Gun, Golden Fleece and Golden Goose awards.
I’ll never write with this fabulous pen. It is a trophy, a cup, a medal – not something to scribble with. I lose pens too easily, while this will be given pride of place over my fireplace in a display case.
My writing has gained a few modest accolades, including the August 2003 Silver Stake award for vampire poetry gained at the Creatures Of The Night poetry event, run by Rosie Lugosi. This however, is my proudest achievement, until of course, the Pulitzer, Booker and Nobel awards wing my way too, as they surely must. Thank you one and all.
Note – The Silver stake Award referred to above, is real.
