Phew, that is good, I did reply to the person and say that, as far as I was aware we were just resting! :-) :-) :-)

A Happy Christmas to all scribblers and may our brains be revitalised come the new year.

Good morning fellow scribblers :-) I wasn't aware the group had broken up either :-S although we have been quiet of late.....soo much to do/think about! but I think that's a great idea to start the New Year with Rose.
New Years past? that's all I seem to think about at the moment,I try not to get too maudling but to remember the happy times.

I'd like to wish all writers and readers a very happy Christmas and a healthy,peaceful New Year 2012

Mau XX :-) <3

Hello Ann,

I did reply to someone in the group that I hoped we would 'revive' after Christmas :-D I haven't given up ( though all I seem to come up with at this time are mawkish Christmas poems which I feel are a 'bit much' even for me lol). I think we have all been busy one way and another, either with Christmas or family/work things generally.

Any one who wants to try their hand at a bit of writing would be made very welcome, we don't do hard criticism ( thank God lol) just encouragement...and it's FUN ! :-)

Something for the New Year? A poem or piece about New Years Past, or hopes for the year to come?

I have just been told by a member of the group that the writers group has broken up. If it has I am not aware of it, can somebody enlighten me please. I was under the impression that we were all taking time out for Christmas. I know I am as I had 160 cards to make and I couldn't spread myself any further than I was. I am hoping that we will return with a vengeance after christmas.

I must say I was most upset to get that email.


AnninGlos Report 14 Nov 2011 22:07

sorry BC I have not written much at all as been so busy making Christmas cards. Will have to get my thinking cap on.


ButtercupFields Report 14 Nov 2011 21:03

Just to say thanks to all who sent me comments on my latest offering; It was all brought on by buying a new duvet,so it was :-D :-D

I know we have all been busy and since Rose left,we have lost a bit of oomph, but it would be nice if we continued, even now and then :-)



AnninGlos Report 3 Nov 2011 15:16

Thanks Mau, now you put the rest of us lazy lot to shame.

Who said that? One of the old comedians on the radio I would think, my parents would often say it.


Mauatthecoast Report 3 Nov 2011 14:17

"Well i've arrived and to prove it I'm here".......who said that? :-S ;-)

Have finally sent a piece out :-D :-D do hope the text isn't too small for you dear readers,but I've been havin' a bitta trouble :-(

Feels good to be back though :-D

Mau XX


AnninGlos Report 1 Oct 2011 22:11

Well I think when the weather gets cooler we ought to have some words or something to start us off. Oh all right BC, not you, you can usually find your own words but some of us need a bit of a shove.

I think we are missing Rose, anyone heard from her? I had no reply from her when I sent out the last piece. didn't hear from Peter either.


ButtercupFields Report 1 Oct 2011 18:39

I do not think we have collapsed as such, Ann, merely catching our breath before our muse gives us fresh inspiration :-D

Naughty Mau...get scribbling! :-D

*dips pen in inkwell....ummmmm.......


Mauatthecoast Report 1 Oct 2011 18:01

*red-faced* appears so Ann :-( :-|.........try as I might I cannot finish any of my poor attempts...sorry follks.... :-(

Mau xx


AnninGlos Report 1 Oct 2011 17:35

So, have we finally collapsed then?


AnninGlos Report 22 Sep 2011 13:11

Just in case anyone missed my last post as I have only heard back from a few.


AnninGlos Report 21 Sep 2011 17:44

I have sent out the final 2 chapters of The House. If by chance you didn't receive it please let me know.


Mauatthecoast Report 6 Sep 2011 20:46

You write soo many words Ann,you put me to shame.. *blushes*.....try as I might I cannot find a story or poem in me at the moment,sorry!

Mau :-( :-)


AnninGlos Report 6 Sep 2011 20:25

I have sent out chapter 20 but I inadvertently used an old e mail address list. If you would normally receive items from me and have not had ch 20 would you let me know please.


AnninGlos Report 28 Aug 2011 17:52

Just sent out two more chapters of The house. 18 and 19. Last chapter is 22!!!! Three more to go.


ButtercupFields Report 16 Aug 2011 22:38

Thank you Ann. I so enjoyed writing it! BC XX


AnninGlos Report 16 Aug 2011 22:32

ButtercupFields Report 16 Aug 2011 20:00
