This will be our first Saturday meetup at a new site: Cafe Caffeine. We have a much more casual arrangement with them, and I will simply be coming in and arranging tables. It is a smaller venue, so the rsvp cap is lower.
The idea is simple. We show up at that place and time ready to write. Bring your laptop, notebook, Underwood, quill and inkwell, whatever you may have. We sit around a square of tables, and with luck the sound of other happy typists compels us to type also. When the time's up, people can linger and chit-chat if they wish.
This is the counterpoint to our discussion and sharing meetups, and at the write-in we don't talk all that much. Just write, and share in the joy of not being the only one doing so. :) Afterwards, we've been talking a bit about what we worked on, where it's going, and then breaking for informal discussion between the writers.
Cafe Caffeine is a cafe environment, and it is calmer than most cafes, but sometimes there's the sound of an espresso machine. If somewhat-lively environments don't work well for you to write in, consider freeing your slot for someone.
When you arrive, look around for a cluster of tables.
I'm looking forward to it. If you are too, RSVP!
