Helen -
Be sure to check all the concurrent events, likes New York Book Week. I'm going to an event at Barnes & Noble on that Tuesday night with people I'm trying to interview for my book. Lots of stuff going on. I'll be in the EDC Educational Services booth (Usborne Books), and will let you know the booth # (in the children's books area).

Helen - It would be great to meet up at BEA! I'm also there for DIY on the 21st. Monday the 23rd, I have to go to Connecticut for a meeting with the Voices of September 11 people (related to my book); will be at Javits the rest of the time. I'm working a booth part of the time, but not a lot. I'd love to find out who else from She Writes will be there,

Thank you very much -- it's going to take me awhile to get used to how this works.

Hi Helen, I'm actually not a London writer - I live in Essex, but here doesn't seem to be an Essex group up here yet... but of course Im in town a lot, so nice to meet you cyberly, and perhaps see you at some event in town sometime? All best, Clare

It has been a few months since I've caught up with shewrites friends, I hope your writing is going well.

Hi Helen,
Great. I was going to friend-request you as well. (I had to wriggle that ugly compound out of me)

Just a thought - when you're looking at the groups, you might want to check to see how recent activity is, and see what's being discussed. I like being in a variety of groups including a few that aren't my field because a lot of stuff that gets posted can trigger thoughts.

I just saw you're following me on Twitter - I'll now follow you.

All the best

Hi Helen,
I've just come across you and thought I'd say a belated welcome to She Writes. I'd strongly recommend you join several groups. I'm finding inspiration - and motivation - from all the ones I've joined. And the way people share their knowledge and give you support is a rare blessing.
All good wishes

Dear Helen, have we meet ! Your plays hit a musical cord ( The Psychic Detective - Purple, Silver, Olive, Orange - The Memory Man ) and I'm enthralled. Sincerely

Hi Helen, thanks for stopping by my blog this morning. I see you're fairly new to She Writes too. Looks like a great site.
