For the third year running, Athena’s gotten a creative writing award at the year end ceremonies for her school. Excellent. She’s the writer in the Scalzi household with the most writing awards; the only way for me to catch up is if I win the Prometheus and the Fan Writer Hugo this year. I suspect I’ll be continuing to lag behind. Fortunately, this suggests my daughter will be in a position to take care of me in my old age, which I plan on beginning around age 45 or so. Hey, she’ll be 17 then. More than enough time for her to write a bestseller or three.
