Hello, and thank you for visiting my site. I hope that you'll return often and always find something of interest about my world and what inspires me to pick up a pen. (This is a figure of speech, unfortunately. My handwriting is terrible!) Here's what I've been up to recently...

Write-On Ripon!’s Christmas party

The advantages of belonging to more than one writers’ group are clear to me all year round. More like-minded people to bounce ideas off and more inspiration to be gained are just two of them.  There’s some overlap between ‘my’ Ripon groups, but they do have very distinct personalities and last night was my second writers’ Christmas do of 2022. With no formal structure and, as yet at least, no website (although we do have a Facebook page), WOR gatherings can vary in size from two or three to sometimes four times that number, with people dropping in and out as it suits them. 

The party was a lot of fun with a few seasonal readings, a movie quiz, some very lighthearted games and, of course, refreshments. As ever, we were very grateful to the Curzon cinema for allowing us the use of their lounge and we look forward to resuming our usual Tuesday afternoon meetings and monthly open mic events in 2023.
