December 2nd *North* Weeknight Discussion Meetup

Our new schedule has us meeting four times a month, twice each in North Austin and South Austin. Meetings last 2.5-3 hours.

We'll start the meeting off by reading works  (silently) from those that have brought something to share then we'll take turns discussing them. If you want to bring a piece to share please bring at least 4-5 copies and keep it between 2-4 pages in length (under 2,000 words). From there if time allows we will branch into a discussion of topics related to writing.

About the meeting fee, Meetup charges organizers a fee to run the group. So, the suggested donation is to help me cover the costs of running the group. Anything you can donate helps but we won't kick you out if you can't spare a few bucks. In addition to the meetup fee Genuine Joe charges a fee for the room but they let us pay for it in purchases. So, please try to buy something if you can & tell them you are with the group so they can count it towards the room fee. (If you can't afford both just make a purchase since I'll end up owng GJ money anyway if we don't meet the minimum.)

    The writing we reviewed and critiqued was varied and the discussion interesting and useful.

    I get notification too late. I need to take the bus to genuine Joe's after teaching all afternoon. I can't look at email after 3 and before 7 or 8, and in a state that regards building mass transit systems as something akin to domestic terrorism, planning a bus ride takes several hours. (I've lived in central Texas most of my life and I know. The oil and gas industry is a sacred trust here, the private automobile is a religious icon. Taking the bus is for poor people only, Texans believe. That's why I've never been a very good Texan, thank God. Yet I know it and it's history and mythology too well to ever be fooled by the words of any gov't official. Austin will have a convenient transit system only when the downtown are implodes from all the cars. Not a day sooner.)

      Sorry about that Patrick. If you're down far on the wait list you might get late notifications. For reference the RSVPs open one week prior to the meetup so many of the regulars have set up calendar alerts so they can get in before it fills up. Thanks.

    I too apologize. Just returned from a trip that kicked my boo-tah. I don't think any of us would benefit from this bleary-eyed writer. Have fun.

    All, I apologize, but I have a medical issue that can't wait, so I had to cancel. My apologies and I look forward to being at our session on 12/16.

    I have to spend some time in the computer lab tonight getting ready for my finals next week so Francine will be hosting tonight. Her students are prepping for finals too so if she's not there right at 7 on the dot, have no fear she will be there shortly.

    • Deb R.

      We'll miss you!

    Hi Meghan,
    I think I'm learning the routine. Do you post Monday night the week before the event? :)

    • Meghan

      I try to post the meeting at the beginning at the month but the RSVPs open one week prior to the meetup.

  • Patrick C.

    Wow. I just received the email and already all spots are taken! But I put my name on the mailing list and see from last time that people drop out at the last minute.

    Hi Meghan,
    I hope to see you on the 2nd.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
