The amazing Lisa Ratcliffe

There are blogs everywhere today dedicated to Lisa and her amazing blog The Hesistant Scribe. I think she knew what an affect she was having on us, which is why she kept writing even when she didn't have much time left. The determination and bravery she showed whilst making us all laugh was truly astonishing. I only knew her through her blog and a few emails yet she's had a real impact. Her impassioned pleas for us all to get on with it, whether that be writing or just doing the things we'd always wanted to do have not gone unnoticed. I think there will be a lot of books published in the next few years dedicated to Lisa.

I hope it is some solace to her family, however tiny a one, that so many people will miss her.

I hope it's (a tiny) solace to her family too. She touched so many lives with her bravery and her generosity in sharing her life and the time she had.
Yes she was 'amazing'.

Lisa's blog has been an inspiration and I think a lot of us are taking a look at our lives and thinking about what's really important as a result of her brave words.

Really well said. I only found out today and it really shocked me. I am terrified of C especially after my mother but was amazed by Lisa's bravery and upbeat manner. So inspirational.
