December 12th *South* Weeknight Discussion Meetup

Our new schedule has us meeting four times a month, twice each in North Austin and South Austin. Wednesdays will be at Write by Night. 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 (2,500 words max). 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.

**Special Note** for this meeting we will be at our South meetup location, WriteByNight. The WriteByNight folks have generously offered to let us use their office space for our meetings. They will have coffee & maybe a few snacks on hand but if you want something special be sure to bring it as this won't be our usual coffee shop environment. Hopefully the trade off to gain privacy & quiet will be worth it. The also have open writing hours here from 4PM-8PM so feel free to stop by early if you need a quiet place to work. For more info check out their website & meetup group

    Please don't forget to change your RSVP if you can no longer attend, both yes and maybe folks. Thanks!

      Sorry both yes, and wait list folks. Wait listers, you will be bumped in the order you signed up if a spot opens up so it is important you switch to a no if you made other plans.

    I know we spend the first hour or two reading each other's works; is this the biggest reason we have a limit on how many of us can come? i.e. can we come even when 12 are signed up to come?

      Ah. I suppose some people wouldn't get their works read by everyone in the first 2 hours, if that is a possibility. That could make it less communal, but the same number of people would have read each piece.

      It's both a time and space issue. The rooms we use at both location cannot hold 20+ people. In some cases if there are only one or two people on the waiting list it's okay to show up because we usually have a no show or two but when the meeting is full and there are nine people on the waiting list I can't invite all nine people to come. Do watch your e-mail the day of the meeting though as people will inevitably drop out at the last minute as work things come up.

    I was planning to be at WritebyNight Wednesday, so even if I don't make the RSVP list, I may run into some of you there.
