    I told you. I'll get you a half a mild when I'm rich and famous.

    And another hello from London!
    I'm from Yorkshire by birth, but - risky though it is to admit it - feel more at home in London these days. (Another northern exile friend claims this is "the love that dare not speak its name".)

    Don't get to go there that often but me and the fiancée do have a vacation planned in july. It's basically a writing retreat in the hills for us both lol.

    Also it's not very pretty when it rains or the wildlife decide to chase you. lol

    Nice to see a UK thread (with so many pages D: XD )

    I'm originally from Chester, but now live in Halifax, West Yorkshire.
    (Loving the Yorkshire accent up here, everyone sounds so friendly!)

    Love travelling around the UK, though mainly the big cities, it certainly changes things up a bit. (Love Manchester, Birmingham, London...going to big places and potentially getting lost is kinda fun lol)

    Pip H, I'm from the western side of the Pond but I just sold a book set near Chester -- in 973.

    973? Is it about King Edgar by any chance?
    (I'm usually not too big on Cestrian history aside from the Roman walls and things like that...I wonder if it was still called Deva in 973...)

    Chester has such a rich history, and it's still seen around the town centre, it's quite a beautiful place. (Maybe I'm biased as it's my hometown though lol)

    Thanks for the welcome ~

    Hi everyone,

    I'm also in the UK, specifically Oxford. I just came back after just over six years in Japan, so I'm relearning British culture. Sure rains a lot...

    Hello! I'm originally from Matlock in Derbyshire but moved up to the big city (errr... Sheffield) for Uni.

    Any Matlockers/Sheffielders out there?

    Hi. Just joined these august boards. Based in London. Well Greater London (what previously used to Middlesex). Debate from time to time, with my London walks friend what should be on the fourth plinth. The ship in the bottle was quite good. Not too sure about the rocking horse.

    Don't know about mild but can certainly recommend the wheat beer at Chandos (usually followed by a sea food dinner at Wonkey). The first sip of the amber liquid always reminds me of bubble gum.

    Time I said Hello!

    I'm in West London when not in Florida. Unfortunately not much Florida-ing these days, but yay for Chiswick!

    The Land Of The Northern Tribes acknowledges that we cannot get to your gathering, but we appreciate the gesture.
    "Anyone who can't stomach a bit of hypothetical grotesquery needs to toughen up, because the way the world's going, we'll all spend our final days scrabbling through a pile of steaming rubble, desperately scavenging for bits of charred baby to eat with our bare hands. And under those circumstances, a dark sense of humour will be a massive advantage."

    I live in central London (after years in the scruffier parts of zone 2).

    I'm spending this week at the Swanwick Writers' Summer School in Derbyshire -- anyone else?

    FYI, the talks are pretty good, and the people very friendly (though it's all a bit overwhelming for someone used to working alone at home every day!).

    Just joined from Staffordshire. According to the signposts, it's the 'Creative County' but at the moment I would personally beg to differ. Hey wait! "It was a dark and stormy night..." - that's a great opening line! Now I'm rolling...
