Steve Dilley from Veterans Art Project joined us. VetArt's mission is to provide free bronze casting and ceramics classes to veterans, their families, and veteran's advocates. The organization has studios locally in Vista and Fallbrook.

Ron shared a list of writing tools:
  • Boomerang Respondable for Gmail: 

    Emails that get read and responded to? Must be magic.

  • Hemingway AppComplex sentences, beware. Highlights your words and sentences and suggests simpler words, omit verbs, and make sentences less complex.

  • GrammarlyIt’s okay to be lazy when you’ve got Grammarly. (But remember, good writers break the rules.)

  • Portent Content Idea Generator: If you write a lot of headlines, bookmark this page ASAP.

  • Headline Analyzer: Not a visually appealing website. But it’s worth it.

  • Dejargonizer: Designed for science writers, but can work for you too.
