My Blog SCRIBBLE AND EDIT reflects my love of creative writing, design, literature and film.

Do bear with me, as I will reciprocate with those genuine commenters on my blog.  BTW I sometimes withhold comments for challenges until later. Comments about the post are much appreciated. Thank you.

The only SURE way for me to follow you back is if you leave a comment. However, if your Blog has a black background and white writing then it makes my eyes squiffy...

Belated Who's your hero bloghop

Once again coming to the party a little late, but I thought I would share with you the person, who inspired me to write. Michelle Wallace and J LCampbell's Blog hop.


Well I used to write my parents letters before I could spell and properly form letters and they would be delighted. This then developed into creating my own little books on anything I could think of as I enjoyed the stories they read to me and my mother was a librarian and instilled  love and reverence in me for books. Then I started writing my own stories...

Over the pat few years my heroine has been my lovely Internet friend, Sharon Luchessi, who was like a surrogate Mum, best friend, confidant and no 1 fan and she would patiently and enthusiastically direct my writing to help me better hone my skills. She was a wonderful person who sadly died this March and my inbox aches its emptiness. However, I still have her in my heart and know she is supporting me still in her happy haven in Heaven.
 
How about you?

  1. Hi Madeleine .. I am sorry to read you've lost one of your online mentors and friends, who inspired you to write and continue writing .. you've had a tough year ...

    I always wrote home - but none survive ... however when I set off for South Africa - my writing home really set off - and probably established the way I write now ... educative, informative with some history ... those letter's I still have ...

    We've got a blog hop: Want to make a difference blog fest - for the food banks ... on 4th - 6th December ... I posted last year 16th Nov .. and here's MJs link:

  2. Yes, they inspire us from wherever they are, be it miles away or in spirit. It's so hard to lose someone, but then we take on their memories in our hearts and somehow we keep moving forward. Best to you. I know it's hard to see and feel those who have moved on at times, but we must have faith they are always there :)
