One of my Flickr photos was picked for the 3rd edition of the Schmap Vancouver Guide (they emailed a couple of weeks ago saying it was shortlisted, and requesting my permission to use it if chosen, then last week I got another email saying it had been picked).

This is the photo:

False Creek

And here it is in the Schmap guide.

There’s also a widget, but we all know how WordPress feels about third party widgets 😦

What’s funny is that before Schmap looked at the photo, it had zero views. Heh. Now it has a whopping three!

Million Writers Award

The storySouth Million Writers Award honors and promotes the best fiction published in online literary journals and magazines.

Anyone can nominate one story; editors can nominate up to three stories. Nominations took place last month. Toasted Cheese nominated three stories (“Musee Mecanique” by Terri Brown-Davidson, “Refuge” by Anna Evans, and “Cravings” by Trish O’Brien-Edwards).

The Notable Stories of 2005 (selected by eight judges) were released yesterday, and one of Toasted Cheese’s stories was chosen!

The judges selected “Cravings” as one of the Notable Stories of 2005.

I’m possibly more excited than if I wrote the story myself!
