Three Quick Items
1. Thanks to Darienne for reminding me:
"The Elements of Style" by William Strunk Jr. and E.B. White are almost required for all writers.
A quote from Professor Strunk: "Vigorous writing is concise. A sentence should contain no unnecessary words, a paragraph no unnecessary sentences, for the same reason that a drawing should have no unnecessary lines and a machine no unnecessary parts. This requires not that the writer make all sentences short or avoid all detail and treat subjects only in outline, but that every word tell."
2. Our fearless leader, Ernie Ovitz, will be unable to attend tonight or the next meeting. We'll miss him.
3. Our thanks to Peter. Here is the information for an on-air radio program that features local writers and their work.

Join us Wednesday night. I hope to see a number of writers there and hear some really good stories.
