It has begun!

Rob has arisen, he has struck a pose behind the podium, and he is giving a bit of history about where the Whitney Awards came from. The idea spawned from last year's Storymakers conference. Rob came up with the idea with Brandon Sanderson, kicked it around a bit, and decided to run with it.

The name of the award comes from Orson F. Whitney's who once said, "We will yet have Miltons and Shakespeares of our own."

I'm sitting here in Southern Idaho watching and hoping Betsy Brannon Green reigns victorious! I hope so! Good luck Betsy! I'm cheerin' for ya! Nice comments on the clothes. I really liked the dress of Rachel Nunes. And Hillary, NICE PHOTOS! :-)
