Stressing out

This morning I was interviewed by a journalist – she came all the way from Auckland! – about my role in the NZ Post Book Awards. Among many other impertinent questions, she asked about how stressful the process is: there will be only four winners out of more than 150 entries and so a pretty high ratio of non-winners to winners, higher probably than in these awards’ previous incarnation, the Montanas.

I said this was as nothing compared to the stress I will be under tomorrow when my wife and I select the Player of the Day for our eight-year-old’s netball team.
