The best of 2007 - The annual Dwainy nominations!

Remember me? I'm that guy who wrote a novel in a month and then took the next month off. I'm back one last time before the end of the year. I'll post the nominees today and the winners in early January. Remember, nominees and winners are determined not be by how good they are but by how much I arbitrarily liked them. If you don't like it, make your own irrelevant blog award.
