Off Topic Board / Re: Wedding Etiquette?
« Last post by AnnH on Today at 10:27 AM »
I guess I'm old fashioned. I can see not inviting a spouse to a wedding shower, baby shower, luncheon, birthday party.

But in an event joining two people in wedlock, just seems polite to invite spouses or not invite either person.  :star2

To further explain: The invitation was an Event invitation on Facebook. I saw that a couple of people posted publicly on the event asking if their spouses were included, and the woman doing the inviting said, "Yes, of course!" Rather than assume that meant my spouse was also included (though to be honest, I was sort of assuming so after reading that the other two in question were), I privately messaged (because I had an additional question about the venue) her asking the same question, and also asked if the event was wheelchair accessible. That is when she said she was sorry, that she had to be restrictive that because of cost they could not include spouses they did not know. And that is when I politely declined.

 :faint I am flabbergasted, too. This is just plain rude and thoughtless.

Hi all - I’m sorry, but it looks like I will probably be unable to make it to dinner Fri night  after all :(  baby is having a tough time sleep training and we would have to leave on Thur to make it to Friday’s dinner - if we hope to preserve some measure of sanity and ability to put two logical sentences together for the big day Saturday.....haha sigh 🙄 hopefully I will meet some of you at the conference! :)

I am not hurt, but I do have to say I'm flabbergasted.

Graphic Novels / Re: Who's working on a Graphic Novel project?
« Last post by mghiggins on Today at 07:02 AM »
I have a software question. For those of you using Scrivener for your GN scripts, are you using the comic book template or just doing your own thing? I've tried a couple of times to figure out how to use that template and have found it incredibly confusing. A writer friend recommended Final Draft, which is for screenplays but also has a graphic novel template. It's fairly easy to use, but the 30-day free trial runs out soon and the program is expensive. I already own Scrivener, so that would be my preference, if I can just figure it out! (I use Scrivener for all of my fiction and nonfiction book drafts, so I'm familiar with the basics.)

Stupidly, I forgot to shop for dinner on Saturday and we ventured out yesterday: the winds were awful. It's a lovely sunny day today but the transport systems are still not functioning & of course, it is sad about the fatalities, but it is a sad fact of natural life that this will happen, whether "deliberate" or not. Some people just cannot be told.
We were extremely lucky: that stadium is about five minutes away.
