Recently I met up with another friend I previously only knew through the internet. Sheila Crosby is a great writer, scientist, writing buddy, photographer, yeti keeper, founder of the critiquing group I belong to and all round good egg.
As a change from me driving in the campervan to see her she flew over from La Palma. Another break from my usual m.o. was that instead of tea and cake there was curry and wine ... and sausages ... coffee... trifle ... Well we had a lot to talk about!
Hopefully it won't be too long until we can meet again. If I was to win the £30,000 top prize in this competition, or the £500 in this one then I'd start making travel plans. Alternatively if I won the arvon course on offer here, I might make new writing friends.
