An Editor's View

At some point we will have to give our precious manuscripts over to an editor. How will they perceive it? What are they looking for? What will turn them on and what will turn them off.

We are trying a new hosting venue this week, the Stone's Throw Restaurant. It has room for quite a few group members and MUCH more comfortable seating than the Atrium.

You can find Stone's Throw next to the Best Western Hotel on Johnson St downtown, near the intersection of Johnson and Douglas Street:

At present, as we are being hosted for no charge at a place of business, it would be good manners to consider patronizing them with a drink or a small food item during the meetup. This is not required, however.

(Note that we are researching alternative locations for meetings.)

    Thank-you everyone for coming and trying out the new venue. It was a little noisy, but we'll try a different seating spot next time we're there as that may assist in having better group conversation.

    The handout from tonight has been uploaded, with additional info links pertaining to our discussions.

    I will be there in spirit, but the body is totally wasted at this point...

    For those who can't make it, I will post the handout in the Files section for download. I hope you'll be able to make it out next time. :)

    Unfortunately some medical stuff came up. Darn. Sounded like such a good evening and interesting venue.

    Sorry to have to change my mind--now there is another spot open for someone!

    Due to the HUGE response, I have set a limit of 20 attendees, in order to ensure we will all fit into the space set aside for us at the restaurant.

    Hello everyone, I've arranged to hold this upcoming Meetup at Stone's Throw Restaurant on Johnson St.

    The owners Corey and Frazer have graciously allowed us to take over the front half of the restaurant for a few hours. It will be much more comfortable than the Atrium and quieter as well.

    Please let me know if you have any questions and we'll see you there!

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.
