The Brief History of ‘The Inspiring Muse Award’
I’ve been ‘Shamelessly Promoting Someone Else’ for as many years as I’ve been online and I decided to take it one-step further. Despite the internet’s reputation for trolls, I’ve found that I interact with a brilliant collection of people on a daily basis. Each offers a gift whether it’s art, knowledge, a story, or just a well-timed joke. I wanted a way to thank them for inspiring me that was less impermanent than a typed ‘thank you’.
This is a personal award that I bestow on people who I feel are excellent examples of different aspects of the creative community, or of humanity in general. Anyone I interact with is eligible to receive it, and it is awarded once each month.
December’s winner is S. A. Gibson for his enthusiastic support of writing collaborations and generous nature. Through him, I’ve been introduced to many talented authors, collaborated on a short story, and been promoted with him. His unique, post-apocalyptic series is a must read.
