Thank you so much for looking into the Get Trapped in a Book Writing Group.

Writing a book can be lonely and intimidating when you are trying to go it alone, but often when writers get together they do more talking than writing.

This is a friendly but focused group. We work in 45 minute SILENT sessions with a short break.

It is not a critique group, not a writing class, not a plotting or brainstorming party and not a workship. We work QUIETLY together.

It is for writers who would like the structure and energy of working around other writers, but don't want the time to be spent in time-killing chit-chat.

Writers meet at a local coffee shop. We can sit together or you can find a place on one of the easy chairs or get your own table. I try to snag the big table if I can and run an extension cord for everyone's laptops.

At the main table, respect your work and other people's boundaries and the need to concentrate.

When you need a break or want to socialize with other writers, please feel free to leave the table and grab some coffee and have a chat.

The focus is to get out of neutral, feel the support and energy of other writers and get to work on dreaded manuscript in a comfortable environment.

You CAN get your book finished! Magic happens when writers come together.

I appreciate each and every one of you and I'm so glad you are here to build a strong writing community with an overflow of positive vibes so that you can get that project moving forward.

Hope to see you soon. Bring your laptop or pen/paper and prepare to get trapped in a book!

**NOTE:  we are sometimes a little helter skelter about RSVPing on meetup but a group of us are at Starbucks consistently so don't be timid about just showing up.  :)  **

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
