When Patsy met Suzy

I recently met up with writing buddy Suzy (Susan Jane Jones) as she says in her report it didn't really feel like a first meeting. For one thing I've read about many of her (mis)adventures and giggles on her blog and via our online group.

Suzy writes the slightly mad and great fun Redington stories. There's an example here. Eventually there'll be a book about her imaginary village as I'll nag her until there is. Suzy is brilliant at telling real events in a quick and entertaining way, so I hope she's going to enter this competition. Free to enter and there's £200 on offer for your 500 word story.

Suzy helps and encourages me with my writing, so I might as well blame her for this. It's a mini series in three parts. It's all available to read (free) now.

  1. Hi Patsy, and it was fab fab fab to meet you in real life, and I must go and edit my post to link to your latest story. Thanks for all the links, and the fun in the N.E.C. Also, glad you reassured me that I'm not bonkers as we both know the prime minister 'Maggie' is doing a great job in number 10.

    1. Ah yes! Good to know we're both up to date on current affairs and have a good grasp of politics ... Wasn't it nice too the way we weren't crowded and everyone politely kept a few paces away from us?

    1. It would be a fun read wouldn't it, Teresa? Reckon we need Marigold in at least half the chapters.

    1. It was lovely to meet her and you're right, after meeting people their blogs are even more fun to read.

      I'm sure we'll be coming your way again sometime - will let you know when we do and hopefully we can arrange another meeting.

    1. Only another writer really understands what it's like, Charan.

    2. You still are, Sheila. Even when you don't get time to do the actual writing you're still a writer. Bet you're noticing things you could use and plotting things in your head.

    1. We picked the background specially, Leandra (so you couldn't see the cakes!)

    1. There was a bar, Keith but we sensibly walked right by it and had coffee. We were quite chatty and giggly enough on that.

    1. It was great to meet Suzy - lucky too as the trip was a last minute thing and coincided with her having free time. Glad you're braced for our trip to Wales!
