My first gift would be time for Nicko. Unfortunately, that can't be bought with money.

lol!

Brilliant pressies, I wish I had thought of them.

I think I would give every NF member a specially engraved  key.
It will fit into the time machine I am designing (maybe my latest project) everyone with a key will be ransported to a special secret venue, where, post pandemic lockdowns, we will all meet up, and have a fabulous belated Christmas get together.

Different continents wont be a problem, my machine has it all covered.

Ben will be host, Eddie can alternate between fronting the band and whizzing round (on skates) providing drinks.....HT will be providing exotic dance tips for anyone still agile enough to swivel their hips without doing their back in.

There will be dancing, singing, drinking, but most of all, we will do what we do best, communicate with one another.

I cant wait. x Cool

Gels, you dont have to skate, that's Eddies speciality.....and to be honest, considering Ben, Quill and myself designed a pair specially for her when we were discussing an open air cinema experience we had in mind, I think she is being a tad ungrateful. snobby 

All you have to do is turn up and regale us with your funny life experiences. cheers 

Speaking of Quill, he can be on the door, checking no one with a bogus key is admitted, though we had better make sure Maddog is already in, else he has no chance. Razz

The short story you wrote and allowed us to read on here was really good, it gave me the chills.

Very much appreciated Syl, always nice to be told how good my work is Smile
Needed it today more than ever (this year has been rotten...).

Currently working on a novel in the vein of Game of Thrones, inspired by the Peasants Revolt - it’ll be my fourth completed full length story, and first time I’ve felt seriously confident about anything this long. Planning to bombard agents next year. I can dream Smile

I really hope you persevere with it, bombard away, so many successful people had to fight to be accepted when they started out.

Ben and Eddie, and HT may be able to give you tips.....but talent will out eventually, so good luck with getting your book out Eilzel.

Yeah, I'm always open for advice, and have talked writing with all of them in the past and will always be happy to do so.

I have self-published a couple, but without time and money for marketing it is really a thicker wall to breach than the traditional route.

A way to go yet though, still need to finish the last 10 chapters Smile

Here is a great NEW Christmas song.....I gift it to all NF members and readers. xxx

And in return I wouldn't mind being gifted Keith Urban, just put him under my tree....Nicole can have him back on Boxing day. Wink

I will happily accept your gift (of this block of ice), but only if you can get it from the Okjokull glacier in Iceland 750 years ago, before the mini ice age started, and before there was any glacier/ice there...
