Suite101.com Editor’s Retreat, Evil Neighbours and Kitty

This weekend, suites’ sweet editors fly in from all over the world for two and a half days of discussion, learning, brainstorming and hopefully eating lots of fresh west coast food.
Yup – winter is over and it’s time for our annual Editor’s Retreat. I look forward to this weekend all year. We learn so much about online writing, SEO, communications and each other over this weekend of work, and perhaps some play.
I’ll be back at my computer on Monday with a whole new excitement level (if that’s possible).
The only dark cloud to the whole weekend is that my neighbours evil cat (fat and smelly) but that’s not his fault, bit my Kitty in the ear and she had to have emergency surgery for an infection this morning. I will worry about her all weekend, because she hates wearing a cone, and she’s not to partial to the vet, either. She bit him. He should know better – she is a tad feral, but only when she is afraid.
The evil neighbour also has an angora rabbit that appears to be as neglected as the cat. Why do people get animals and then not take care of them? Spanish Banks
I don’t have a picture of Kitty, but she is the one on the blog, but I do have a pic of the beach. We went swimming yesterday and the water was not freezing, actually almost warm.
That’s about if for today.

Check out my Interview with Mignon Fogarty

June 26, 2008 01:01 PM Eastern Daylight Time
Celebrated ”Grammar Girl” Mignon Fogarty Offers Quick and Dirty Tips for Writers on Suite101.com

VANCOUVER, British Columbia–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Suite101.com, the general-interest online magazine with over eight million monthly visitors, features award-winning podcaster and author Mignon Fogarty as the latest Suite101.com Celebrity Writer.

Fogarty, aka Grammar Girl, is best known for her weekly podcasts tackling common writing and punctuation challenges. These popular podcasts have reached #2 on iTunes and were the inspiration for her book, Quick & Dirty Tips for Better Writing, published by Macmillan.

“Grammar Girl is a refreshing champion for language-lovers everywhere. Her trademark humour gives writers and readers the straight goods when it comes to crossing ‘T’s and dotting ‘I’s,” said Suite101’s Editor-in-chief, Joy Gugeler. “With a welcome lack of snobbery she explains grammatical principles and provides memorable examples. Every writer needs a quick refresher when language is always evolving.”

In a Web-exclusive excerpt on Suite101.com Fogarty tackles the subject of how to use “however” in a sentence and challenges the advice given by esteemed grammarians Strunk and White. She also talks with Suite101’s Writing & Publishing Editor Julie Burtinshaw in an exclusive interview about writing techniques and her most preferred punctuation mark: “The interobang. It’s a combination of both the exclamation mark and the question mark. It looks like a ‘P’ with dot at the bottom. It’s not universally accepted, but it’s my favourite.”

Suite101 features Celebrity Writers each month who publish original articles on burning questions in their field and take part in interviews offering candid advice to freelance writers.
