A Winner, Some Writing Info, and Another Blog Break

I'm happy to announce the winner of my book(s) give away posted on July 18. 
The winner is......by random drawing......Kathy of "Oregon Gifts of Comfort and Joy!" Congratulations, Kathy! As soon as Kathy lets me know which two books she wants, they will be on their way to her. Thanks to those of you who participated!


Please don't forget about writing contests and/or calls for submissions that I've recently mentioned. Also, please remember Publishing Syndicate is looking for stories for several anthologies. All you writers -- start submitting! As the lottery slogan says, "You can't win if you don't play."

It's time for me to take another BBB. (Brief Blog Break!) I'll be drinking lots of coffee, out of various favorite mugs. The one above says Sister Mary Morning Blend. That just cracks me up!

As much as I enjoy writing blog posts and trying to read a few friends' blogs, I just can't do it and still have enough time to be committed to my memoir. So, until further notice, I'll be pounding the old keyboard with scathingly brilliant pages (uh, I certainly hope I do) to complete my memoir. Please keep me in your thoughts, as I will keep you in mine.



    And you know who else cracks me up.......Maxine!

  1. Hi Becky, I struggled to click on your giveaway post last week, (my internet problem, not yours) and missed out on participating. Boo-hoo. I also need to knuckle down and do some submissions so will click on your labels now and see what I can do. See you when you return. Hugs Jo

  5. Yay! Thanks, Becky! I choose "Knit One Pearl One" and "Never Change". Those look good to me. Can you please write me something sweet on the inside cover, I'll keep them forever. A long time ago I won that book about bread on here, and I put it with my cookbooks.

    I'll miss you on here, but blogging does take tons of time. Hope you get a lot done on your book!

I love comments, especially because I know the time it takes to stop and type one, even a short one! Thanks very much!
