Lisa's Words and Two New Racers

It has been a while since I added the Hesitant Scribe’s words to our heading. Each day I look at them and know what I need to do even when I am feeling crap or feeling that I write crap. Writers write.

I think I speak for us all when I say that Lisa was an inspiration in many ways and I confess to being initially reluctant to fill her place among us. But I soon realized that it was my unwillingness to move on and that wouldn’t be hers. She was so supportive of us and would not want to hold a ‘wait lister’ from adding their special energy to the group. So we will be welcoming Karen and Annieye to the Novel Racers. Two you say! Well, the lovely Zinnia is going to be taking a sabbatical and give blog type stuff a break while she focuses on her writing – but fear not, she will still be lurking and can be reached by email.

So there we are. Lisa’s words guide us and we welcome two new or not really new voices to the group. Hopefully they will pop by shortly to do a proper intro.

Now back to what I need to do – write!

Welcome both, (I'm sure Lisa would be delighted... so long as we all keep writing!). Thanks, Liz.

The thing that bothers me about Lisa's words is I always read them here and remember I'm online when I should be writing.....

Good choices both, Liz: adopting the Hesitant Scribe's words as our motto, and moving on. Lisa would have approved of both. (Though she might have been a bit bashful about being identified in her quote.)

Welcome to our two new racers!

I think our absent friend needs to come and haunt me or something. Going through a very slow and uninspired patch at present. I think I'll give myself a face-slap by reading her blog.

Welcome to Karen and Annieye. Let me know your race details and I'll put them up on the board. That is, if you want me to.

Have a good break, Zinnia.
