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. :) **
