This Is How You Act When You Win A Writing Award

Of course, tweeting "I won the fucking Newberry!" works too.

  3. Hehehe! If I won, I'd run through his backyard in two-feet of snow, screaming my head off, too! LOL!

  4. I think I would do that if an agent liked my manuscript, no telling what would happen if I won an award.

  5. I don't know, texting "I won the fucking Newberry" just doesn't sound right....given what the Newberry is awarded for, LOL. But great reaction on his part.

  7. @Anna - Actually Neil did tweet that very message after he won the Newberry for 'The Graveyard Book.' A couple of puckered librarians tried to get the committee to rescind his award because of it.

  8. Well, darn those librarians anyway. I loved the video. Thanks for sharing. Maybe I could practice running around in the backyard screaming...No, this is a very quiet neighborhood and if I ever do need to run screaming into the yard, I want the neighbors to call the police and not just say, "Oh, that writer woman won another danged award."
