    Those of you writing memoirs might find Howard Norman's interview on his new memoir in today's Free Press thought-provoking. It's at http://www.burlingtonfreepress....­
    Also a short excerpt from the book, "I Hate to Leave This Beautiful Place" is connected,

    What a great group you all are -- incisive, thoughtful, helpful. Really enjoyed the meeting last night, my first, and the divergent opinions.
    Only sorry I was a last-minute participant and hadn't managed to read everything. Thanks for all the inspiring thoughts about thought and writing processes and goals.

    The works were interesting and well written. The comments explored the facets of the presented works. All in all ... very worthwhile.

    This was my first opportunity to have my writing subjected to the group critique. It was
    exhilarating, humbling, and I went through a whole bottle of wine, reading all the member comments when I got home. A very valuable experience and I look forward to the next meeting. Thanks to everyone!

    This is my first writing submission for BWW, so I'll be there with sweaty palms;-)

    Haven't read the submissions and am working at the moment, so I guess someone who's prepared would be a better participant than I. Sorry to miss the opportunity. Newbie question: If we're on the waiting list, should we have read and commented on the submissions, just in case a last-minute spot opens up?

    Hi Peter, I'm scheduled to submit my writing for this meet-up but I forgot to RSVP as an attendee... is that OK?? I kinda thought you said it was - but just checking...

    Work will be in the way of me getting to this one. I just freed up a spot for someone on the wait list. I also need to make sure I am ready to present on the 18th.
