    Excellent Meetup! Two presentations, and a precis of what to do for the anthology. We followed the agenda, and the changed layout of the room comfortably accomodated 36 people.

    Great presentations this month and usual great job from Bob facilitating the meeting. I'm having rotator cuff surgery mid-January and can only hope to be driving again in time for the February meeting.

    I would have given 5 stars but I read somewhere that you should never give a full 5 or a 1, so you get as high as I give, 4 stars.

    I will be bringing the first speaker for this Saturday's meeting who will be talking about the benefits of adapting your manuscripts to screenplays. Michael D'Ambrosio has written 8 books and has adapted them all to screenplays for the television market and/or the movie industry. He has also written an additional screenplay especially for an interested actress and is working now to adapt this screenplay to a book. He has seen both sides of this business and has literally been to hundreds of fan conventions throughout the U.S.
