Huzzah!

I’ve been nominated for the Governor General’s Literary Award!

For the non-Canadians among you, that’s a Canadian award. The Governor General is the Queen’s representative in the Canadian government, a ceremonial and Constitutional position. Here’s the Wikipedia article, which explains the office in more depth than I’m prepared to.

Of course, my husband and I had a good deal of fun this morning imagining what would happen if I won. I’m still pretty new at being Canadian. I assume one dresses up to meet the GG, but then what? Do I curtsey? What if my latent southern accent pops out, as it sometimes does when I’m nervous? I almost feel like Seraphina herself, worried about my manners.

But! Let us not count chickens before they hatch! It is a huge honour just to be nominated, and I say that with gratitude and proper Canadian spelling.
