Writer of Year Photo

Yesterday I received this fun photo in the mail from Mount Hermon, showing Dave Talbott and a hint of the background foliage that makes this particular writer's conference beautiful and idyllic. Seeing this reminded me again of how deeply touched and encouraged I was by the award. I continue to feel that someone slipped up and let me sneak in to a party where I don't belong. The whole professional writing world is so far beyond me. I'm only a novelist by an act of mercy and grace . . .

but then, that's what all our lives are. A gift of grace. So I guess it's okay to feel uncertain, befuddled, and persistently grateful.

Happy weekend, everyone!
P.S. coming soon - "The Story Behind the Restorer" and "Seeking the Restorer" (a contest)
