Hey,

 

CAYOM has been a beautiful journey for me so far, and the last four game years (me starting in Y5) have provided a lot of challenges for me and my writing. I think I'm a better writer for having found and participated in the game. My brain is kind of scrambled by the excitement of it, but I wanted to say thank you for this Best Picture nomination; it's the first time a film of mine has been nominated there, and it really means a lot for me to have written something that is seen as deserving of that position, especially after many films from past game years, whether or not they won or were nominated, have raised the bar very high. As I go forward in CAYOM, other writing ventures, and anything else in my life, I will look back on this moment (as well as your grace and support) and utilize it to inject some much-needed self-confidence into my outlook on myself and my gifts that can be used for good things. I am humbled to receive this honor. God bless you all!

Thank you all for the many nominations. 12 nominations, up from only 2 last year, and including a major nom (for Best Actress), is an amazing achievement for me, especially as it was only my second year in this game. Even just the noms are an honor, really, and as I further progress as a storyteller, I wanna look back on every previous year and think that I got better since. So, yet again, thank you.
