The Starving Activist is the sometimes-home for words. AR Neal (that’s me) finds them, cultivates them, and leaves them here. Enjoy.

Daily Prompt: I'd Like to Thank the Fans

The pixies over at the Daily Post wanted to know

You are receiving an award –- either one that already exists, or a new one created just for you. What would the award be, why are you being honored, and what would you say in your acceptance speech?

At this point, I would love it if my award would be related to my writing.Who knows what tomorrow might bring--I might want an award for the best rescue dogs.But to appease the pixies, today's joy comes from winning something for what comes from the ol' quill.Oh, wait!I get that every day!Every time someone new follows, every time I get a "like," every time someone leaves an encouraging word in response to a post, I get that award.Speeches vary, but typically involve the following two words:

Thank you.

And there you have it.
