Hunter Romance Writers and Collages

It doesn't seem like a month has passed since I met up with my writers group, Hunter Romance Writers, in the Hunter Valley. We had such fun at our meeting. Most of us achieved our monthly goals, and guess what, I didn't have to wear the naughty hat this month. Phew. :)

On the agenda we covered brainstorming, collages, writing an anthology, publishers, our next meeting, you name it. We are quite a productive little group. :) Sadly a few of our members couldn't make it this month, but our new members have been approved. You can find our more on our website: 

Here are some collages we worked on for manuscripts in progress. They are gorgeous. Very talented members. :)

I had a lovely day. We laughed as usual, chatted and didn't stop until our goodbyes mid afternoon. 

Next month we are having a special meeting where we meet with a Detective and fire him with as many questions as possible. lol. Poor guy. Look out. :)

Many thanks to Suzanne Hamilton for organising the boards, glue, sissors, and Kerri for the magazines, and everyone who helped make it a great day. Looking forward to next month's meeting. Suzanne :)

Wow! Those collages are inspiring! What a great idea to do at your meetings.

Glad you missed out on the naughty hat, Suzanne.

What a brave man, coming to a romance writers group. He does know he's going to a romance writers group, doesn't he? You'll get so much great information. :)

See you all next month!

Hey there you are Simone,

lol.. Thanks for calling in. :)

Tami said...

Looks like you had a blast making those. Sometimes it's nice not to 'write' at a writers group. This still keeps your juices flowing.

Suzanne Brandyn said...

Hi Tami,
We had fun. Yes, it's all writing related so I don't feel guilty. Sometimes it's handy to have pictures of scenes, and people. I think it helps description with more depth.
Thank you for stopping in. :)

Suzanne Brandyn said...

Hi Tarnya
Thank you for stopping in. They are very talented ladies.

Hi Annie,
It was fun, and now I'm making another one. lol... It's helping me describe in more depth. I am also enjoying something I never thought I would. Eh. Go figure.

There was even mention of scrapbooking, but wow, I don't have time for that, although it does look interesting.

Thanks for stopping by. :)
