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 more permanent 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.
January’s winner is Melissa Williams for her fantastic support and relentless enthusiasm during virtual events – she’s attended every one I’ve been in for the last year. Melissa is an aspiring author who is currently working on her first novel; as a fan of steampunk, I’m looking forward to its release.
