Beginnings and Endings – Goodbye Lisanne

Lisanne Harrington

They’re tough. Whether it’s a song, a story, or a friendship, beginnings and endings are the most challenging.

Many of you have followed Cary Christopher and Lisanne Harrington’s series for horror writers, The Creaky Hinge. In it they tackled everything from familiar horror tropes to conquering the writing monsters we all face, regardless of genre.

Last month we had to say goodbye to both the series and to Lisanne.

Our dear, funny, talented friend, Lisanne Harrington, lost a battle with her own particular monster. We’ll miss her terribly.

Warning: get a tissue.

Cary wrote a beautiful eulogy for Lisanne, so I won’t write one myself. Instead, I’ll send you to his site.

On behalf of the O.C. Writers community, Megan, and myself, Lisanne thank you for all your wisdom and wit. We’ll see you on the other side.

One thought on “Beginnings and Endings – Goodbye Lisanne

  1. I really enjoyed the collaborative articles by Cary and Lisanne here on OC Writers. I just put Lisanne’s name in the search on this site and her articles came up to refresh my mind.
    It’s shocking to hear of anyone’s death, but when it’s a person in a group to which you belong, whether you’ve only met him or her through the things they wrote, it’s tough, as Greta has said. To her family and friends, may your memories and her writings be comforting to you.
