A Write Christmas!
The above two pictures may look like the typical antics of any Christmas party but this was NOT any party - it was the Wrekin Writers Christmas party!
Angeline and Sue are certainly getting into the mood while they attempt their gurning impression!
I had great pleasure in attending The Buckatree Hall hotel last weekend for our Writers Christmas dinner.
As well as the lovely company, it's a wonderful time to reflect over dinner what we have achieved and what we want to do next year. I felt so positive by talking with everyone about what our writing goals were for 2011
In the photo above (I'm the one with the antlers) I am with Julie Phillips who is a very talented writer and will be our new vice chair next year.
Below is Sue Horder-Mason - Chairperson giving an end of year speech. Sue has decided to step down next year and we all want to thank her for her wonderful contribution as Chairperson, she has done a brilliant job in her role. She has motivated us, inspired us, made us laugh and kept us all in order during our monthly meetings which can get a bit chaotic at times.
The group - after we had scoffed a three course lunch.
Simon Whaley was discussing the length of his novel here with Mike White - Well I guess that was what they were talking about!
I left feeling so happy after spending time with like-minded people. I love being part of this group and feel positive and determined to keep on writing through 2011.
