Thank you all for an amazing 12 Days in the Brave Writer community!

We truly loved every moment of this event. The enthusiastic participation you showed encouraged us as well and created such excitement leading into the retreat planning and our theme, “Be Good to You.”

If you missed the big reveal, you can still view it on Katch and we’ve included the video of the actual drawing here as well!

“In the scurry to be all things to all people, don’t forget to be there for you.”  -Julie

We want those little Internet breaks you take this holiday season to be as rewarding and happy as possible.

You know the ones: when everyone’s home and the “Wild Rumpus” has started, and you sneak away for a few minutes to scroll through Twitter or Facebook or to check-in on the Brave Scopes Facebook group.
