I am a part-time writer looking for ways to stay motivated with my projects--and I'm sure there are many writers and want-to-be writers out there who have just resolved to tackle your fiction/poetry/screenplay/cookbook/blog, etc. with more consistency in 2011. One thing that has been proven to help is to be a part of a regular writing group, as it helps motivate those of us who need structure and community to stay connected to the writing process. So I formed this low-pressure, weekly writing club that will help us all cope with everyday motivation, maintain a commitment to our passion, and meet some other creative-minded and dedicated writers in the process.
All are welcome. Here's the concept: it's simple. We meet at a pre-determined time and place each week and write for 2 hours. You can stay to enjoy a coffee with others or share some ideas about the writing process, or you can simply leave at the end of our time together. Why leave? Maybe you need to be somewhere, you don't feel like discussing your work, or you simply want writing to become a habit, not a social experience.
No genre requirements.
No reading other people's work.
I made up these rules because of the basic fact that writing at its best is both social and solitary. Talking with others about my writing can really get my creative juices flowing, but too much socializing can also be a big distraction. Sometimes it's just enough to get out of the house and see that other people work this way, too. This format offers writers a place to work regularly and a chance for some social interaction *after* the writing session is done. Please join and post some ideas for places/times you can meet and dive into that writing project you've been putting off.
