Chuck the Writer - TWO MORE AWARDS WON!!
Well, your man is happy. Very happy. Way happy.
I submitted two articles for the 2008 International Automotive Media Awards, and this afternoon I found out the final total.
"Diecast Dreams," the article from RoadKing, won a bronze medal in the magazines-entertainment category.
"Redlines, Orange Tracks and Blue Streaks," the article from Toy Collector Magazine, picked up the GOLD MEDAL in the internet-entertainment category!
Two big awards to add to the collection!
As can be seen here, I am celebrating my awards with Elaine Haessner, the person in charge of the International Automotive Media Awards. My sincere thanks to the IAMA's and their parent company, the International Society for Vehicle Preservation. I had a fantastic time at the awards, and I look forward to writing new articles that, in the future, might also earn similar recognition.
Oh... and after the awards, I had to do a little celebrating.
Because right next to my Red Roof hotel - was a chain restaurant featuring chicken wings, beer, and various other bar delicacies.
In fact... I got two of their "delicacies" to pose with me and my winning awards!!
And talk about stepping into the wayback machine - this Hooter's was having a competitive trivia night, something along the lines of "Are You Smarter Than a Hooters Girl?"
Of course I won. Come on. It's competitive bar trivia. You might as well ask Jack Nicholson if he ever did any acting in his career.
But in any case... I'm celebrating, baby! Two more awards for the Chuck Miller Creative Writing Service!
