I am sure if you clicked the link above – and you’re anything of a writer yourself – you’ve just jump started your morning with the equivalent of a hot cuppa! Well, I just did.

Unboxed Writers has other lovely pieces by writers who are very talented. And although I have been reading them for sometime, a doze from ‘the fishwives of New Zealand’  inspires me to do something I have been wanting to (but have been lazy to) – add them to my Blog Roll!

Good luck Unboxed Writers and happy reading them, people!

    Lovely stuff Tina. Feels great to read travel writing that isn’t weighed down by the usual cliches and feel-good descriptions. Thanks for sharing.

    • Thanks Vidu… they are a wonderful lot, Unboxed Writers. I read your posts today too… loved one of them… will comment ‘coz I want to blog about it too. BTW Dianne’s posts reminds me of the times we used to read such stuff written by each other and critique it! 🙂
