Coffee Break: Spotlights

Spotlight image 2.

I forgot to put the coffee pot on last week, so to make up for it, I'm offering some festive mulled wine this week. How about a mince pie to go with it? Yes, for breakfast!

Meanwhile...

"I wonder if we could do a member spotlight or something along those lines, so all the new members can get to know the older ones and vice versa? I'm new member and sometimes I feel a bit lost here... not quite sure who everyone is and all! Just a thought."

The above paragraph is a good idea from Talli. I'm up for it. What do you think of it? We could do this either on this blog, or if people wanted a bit more privacy, on the private place.

Note that this is the last coffee break before the Xmas and New Year break.

Well it's 4pm here so a perfect time for a mince pie; shame I don't like them.

I think that's a great idea and I have no problem with it being on either place. I'm not exactly anonymous. I will of course understand if anyone else wishes to be more private.

Wishing everyone here - members and non-members - a very happy Christmas and New Year.

It's a good idea, I suppose, especially for those of us who don't have a large online presence. Yes, I'm for it. It's be nice to know what genres people write, at least.

(Just spotted an annoying spelling mistake in my last reply. I'll try to do better this time....)

As a new member, I would welcome this very much. I think I'd prefer the private place, but it doesn't really matter.

Happy Christmas and New Year.

I could do with some mulled wine, it's freezing here today. I think this is a great idea. Just say when and where.

I've set the snowball rolling in the other place.

A great idea as I said the other week that we seemed to have stalled a bit. I don't mind where either. I would also like to wish everyone a happy Christmas and creative New Year. Will go and have a look at the other place now.

Yay! Thanks for airing my idea, and the positive response.

Sounds good to me, don't mind which site. Merry Christmas everyone!

Good idea. I don't mind either in private or in the public arena. Happy Christmas to all Novel Racers.

What a great idea! I'm up for it...

Mulled wine with a mince pie....well I've never had mulled wine, I don't think, so I'll take a small glass with my mince pie, if that's OK?

Thank you everyone, I think it's a go. All things considered, the private place seems to be the right arena for this, especially if people are more comfortable posting their spotlights there. Thanks to Grum for going first.

I'll post my spotlight there soon...

I think this is a great idea! Also am free from February if you need any coffee break volunteers
