(Not So) Wordless Wednesday

As some of you may know, Aguja from 'WordStitcher' and I are friends in real world, as well as the Blogosphere.

We often stop off for a coffee after our Art class to chat about books, writing, blog post ideas and all sorts of other things. As the life of a writer can be rather lonely at times, it's really good to able to share ideas with each other and encourage one another, when the writing process takes its toll.

This year to celebrate the festive season, Aguja and I decided to go to a restaurant for a 'Writer's Pencil' Christmas lunch and here are some photos (which I have to credit Aguja for, as I forgot my camera and my phone camera isn't very good):

The restaurant was decorated with a lot of lovely Christmas decorations, including this beautiful Christmas tree.

'The Writer's Pencil' about to dive into the delicious food on offer!

This is one of the very rare occasions you will see a photo of me on the blog, particularly wearing a dress! I'm on the left, Aguja is on the right.

As you can see from this photo, the food was delicious. The portions were also rather large, so we felt very full afterwards.

'The Writer's Pencil' Christmas Lunch was a great success. I hope that there will be many more lunches like this one soon!

Are you in a Writer's Circle or even a Writer's Pencil? If so, do you go on outings like this? Also, have you been to any interesting restaurants lately?


  1. Oh, I wish I could get together with my critique partners and my agency sisters. I'd love to meet them in person, but so far we've only communicated online.

  2. What fun the two you must have had. The photos offer a fun view of you and Aguja at your Writer's Pencil lunch. the name!

    I wish I did have a writer friend, but I don't. I've searched and even put an ad in an online meet group, but I guess I'm the only writer in the rural area where I live that longs for a co-hort in crime. I've yet to find a critique partner, also. ACK! What am I doing wrong?

  4. Great photos and good to see you to put a face to the name :)

    wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Happy 2012, dear blog friend.


  5. Thanks for the comments.

    Aguja- It was a great lunch, hopefully the 'Writer's Pencil' can go on a future outing sometime!

    Kelly aand T Opdycke- I know what you mean about finding other writer friends, we seem to be a rare breed, or far too busy at our computers typing, to socialise!

    Trev- Thanks for stopping by my blog!

    Dizzy- I'm glad you liked the photos and Merry Christmas to you too!

  6. First, you should be happy you take good pictures... And no, I don't belong to a writing group. I do dine out with my Artist friend as often as we can, she like me is a working creative. I love meeting up with her because it's always refreshing to spend time creatively minded people. No writer's pencil meal for me but I do chat virtually a lot. Yummy photos!

  7. I love the pictures! Writing and taking pictures are the things I like working on. Always trying to perfect my work.

  8. How fun! I love the Christmas tree. It is nice to see your face. You are so pretty! :)

  9. Again thanks for the comments!

    Brenda- I can't claim ownership on these photos. My friend Aguja took them. I forgot my camera and my camera phone isn't good! Thanks for stopping by the blog!

    Artist- I love taking photos too!

    Steph- Thanks! You're too kind!

  10. What fun - and lovely for us to see you both in your element! Cheers to Writer's Pencil and here's wishing you a long and happy association.

    (No, I've never been part of a writers' group as such, though some of the best Christmas lunches I ever went to were the old gossip hacks' lunches in London...)

    Happy Christmas, Spangle!

  11. Thanks Deborah, Merry Christmas to you too!

  12. As I just wrote on aguja's blog, I was so happy to see what you two look like! Gorgeous, gorgeous! I hope you have many more Writer's Pencil outings in the future. I wish I could go! :)
