      Your failure to proofread made for a great laugh, though! ;-)

    Hey all, I'm not feeling all that great. May not make it tonight, but will do my best. Was really looking forward to this. Maybe everyone can post their first 3 paragraphs on the Yahoo group for those who aren't there? Just a thought. :)

      Bummer you can't be here, but I understand. Good idea about posting.

      March 24, 2014

      If I'm feeling better, I'll be there.

    Hi! I am new to the group and am interested in coming to the next meetup. I just started a new novel, but will be unable to make tonight's meeting. :(

    March 24, 2014

    • Barbara M.

      We look forward to seeing you next week!!

    That's ok sexily. With so many people coming to the meeting we might be listening to an overload of first three paragraphs. See you next meeting.

    March 24, 2014

  • Shane R.

    I've been out of town on vacation but I will be there tomorrow. Looking forward to it.

    Do you want us to restrict to one book or can we bring in the lead paragraphs of all our projects?

    March 20, 2014

    • Barbara M.

      Just one book please, so we will have time for everyone.

    Got dialogue instead of text. Going to make for real short discussion. Instructions in the how to book says each person speaking is another paragraph.

      Janice - consider adding action to your dialogue - that will lengthen your paragraphs and add interest for the reader.

    Paul find your favorite thriller, or author and read their first paragraph. See what they did right that made you sure you wanted to buy that book and finish reading it.

    First three paragraphs not to exceed a certain word count????
