May 17 2010 Editor Assistance Newsletter
The 2010 Chicago gathering is this coming weekend! This means that most of the management team will be busy packing and traveling from now through the middle of next week. If you email us about something, please be very patient in waiting for a response! We will try to get caught up quickly when we return.
The weather is looking *gorgeous* in Chicago for the weekend so we will be enjoying the nearby park, exploring Chicago itself, and soaking in the Illinois landscape! For any discussions we have that aren't in the hotel itself, I'll either tape them with my video camera or I'll take detailed notes. That way editors at home can share in the information!
We keep timing flexible at the gatherings, because we never know if an editor will get in really late and need a late start to the day, or if we all become so fond of a certain spot that we want to stay there for the next session as well. What we'll do is make posts in the editor forum each evening with our general plans for the next day, and then during the day we'll post updates with the proposed timeline. That way Skype editors get a sense if we're going to be starting early at 9am, or if we're going to sleep in because we're all exhausted and start at 11am. We will keep you in the loop as we have our discussions!
I'll also update my Skype status field, so editors who hop on Skype during the day can look at that and see what our next plan is.
We're getting close - this is looking to be a fantastic weekend!
