That February meeting at Panera's was great. We did a breakout session which enabled us to talk in smaller groups in which we touched on new topics...Overall, a great meeting. I can't make it to the Monday March 4th meeting, unfortunately. Hope to see everyone at the next March meeting.

The meeting was excellent: well organized with free flowing discussions on various topics. The group has many resources which will be valuable going forward.
Sorry for missing the meeting! I couldn't make it at the last minute..

We were so happy to meet you, Siimone. Hope to see you next meeting!
Wendy: Just saw your moving email...Hope all goes well with it...I seem to have missed this week's email. How can I get on our website without going through email? I need (technical) help...also how can I post something about my business??? Wendy encouraged us a while ago, but I was too busy with Brookdale...Miss all of you and hope to have some writing to present Feb. 4 (or before if there is another meeting)...

This is an answer for Brigid, rgarding a good source for brushing up on grammar. Try Purdue OWL online. It's an easy way to review the basics and get into better habits. It's what I use to supplement my own materials treaching composition and writing class at Brookdale. Yes, the Chicago Style book is great, but I find it pretty rigid. For commercial writing I usually use AP and the NYTimes style books--or create a customized style sheet for the client.

some of us are bringing current work to share for critiquing. If you have something to share- up to 3500 words, double spaced,12 font or bigger- bring up to six copies. They will be handed out at Feb. 4 meet up and we will discuss them at the next informal meet-up in Feb. Thanks Erin Laurie and Lee for your feedback on my last submission.

my grammar has hit an all time low. Does anyone have a hard cover book to recommend to help with my affliction?

Chicago manual of Style, and The Careful Writer. Both may turn out to be more than you asked for, however. Take a look at them first.
If you want something lighter and more fun, try "Eats, Shoots, and Leaves"

The other two sound interesting, might have to check those out, Lee. Thanks for the mention. Chicago manual of Style is an excellent, gigantic book I refer to while writing whenever I have a grammatical question. Best of luck, Bridget!

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.
