And, Another Suggestion From our Own Ed Ellis

Good day Susan,

I was sitting here today thinking about the up coming meeting and
what would be of value to all of us. One of the thoughts that whipped
through my mind was to start the meeting off with the introduction of
a word. The word could be announced on the blog before the
meeting day. You could ask the members to write a single simple
sentence (one verb) using the word. At the meeting, you could call on
a couple of the members to read how they used the word.

I think the benefits are...
1) Writers use words to create.
2) Writes use the words in sentences.

Respectfully,
Ed

Sounds like a good idea to me, Ed. It may draw people to using the blog as well. This cool little device is too help eliminate the need for individual group emails which in turn elicit lots of email replies! Very time consuming process in addition to already heavy email responsibilities. Perhaps, you'd like to present and discuss your idea next week? Thank you, for your continued interest and participation! You are appreciated.
Susan
