We're Back...Sort Of

Here I am being congratulated by the President

Just a quick note... Yes, I'm back from the InScribe writers' conference. It was an exciting weekend. I had wonderful time connecting with other writers, so many who are now friends, and meeting our keynote speaker, Murray Pura. He was inspiring, encouraging, and challenging in his addresses to us.

Can't stop to share more today as now I'm in the midst of getting my last memoir homework assignment done (it's due tomorrow).

BUT... I had to tell you that I was awarded the Barnabas Fellowship grant, which enables a member of InScribe to further his or her progress in writing. Barnabas means 'encourager', which coincides with the purpose of this award.

Believe me, this truly is an encouragement as I become more focused on my writing. I'm honoured, blessed and delighted by this recognition of my writing journey so far.

 I'll be back in a day or so.


  1. Congratulations! I am so happy for you.

  2. Congratulations, very well-deserved.

  3. good for you, we writers all need encouraging!

  4. Wow, how wonderful for you!! I've actually written something that took me over 6 years to complete. Some day's I'm sure of it, some days on the desk it sits :-)
    I can appreciate you efforts being recognized :-)


  5. Brenda congratulations on your award. I certainly know you deserve it. Your thoughts and writing are truly works of art. Hope you have a beautiful day.

  6. Congratulations, Brenda! I'm so happy for you. Love the colors in your top.

  7. Congratulations! It's such a boost to get a little affirmation that you're on the right path. Keep on writing!
