As Long As They Spell Your Name Right
I know, I know, it's been weeks. Miss me?
Something pretty cool happened this morning. BalticTiger was notified that a short story she wrote last year was recognized as one of the better shorts published on the internet in 2007.
Go to the Million Writers Award - Notable Stories of 2007 website and scroll down to "Verbsap", where you will find "A Letter From Han Solo" written by Cara Lietuva. That's BalticTiger's story.
In case you're wondering, Cara Lietuva is a pen name, so no secret identities are being revealed here. BalticTiger chose to publish it under a pen name because of the political climate at the time, as certain situations -- Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo Bay -- were being made public in the press.
Now that her story has received recognition, perhaps it would have been better to use her real name after all?
