      A follow-up:

      I was looking over the first Harry Potter Book, and found a bunch of lines of all caps in one of the early chapters. I was looking over my own wip and found two interrobangs. Both of these things I criticized your ms. for.

      Now, HP is middle grade, and the writing is somewhat more florid and over the op, and I would *still* urge you to go easy on the interrobangs, but I will soften my position on these things a bit.

    I just put my chapters in the Mermaid's Dropbox folder, so the three submissions for next week are now available. Thanks, everybody -- I'll see you Thursday!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
