Get together to talk about writing / work on our projects

I've been told by several people that there's enough interest and desire in the group to host a meetup for people who enjoy writing. I know several people here who have talked about writing, and there are probably others as well who haven't said anything.

So one thing we could do is meet at a coffee shop someday, bring our laptops, talk about our personal projects, ask questions if we have them, engage in a writing exercise or two, and/or just work on our projects in the company of other writers in the group. I do this on an almost weekly basis and it's quite fun.

Who would be interested in doing this sometime, and when would you be available?

I'm in..... Weekday evenings or Weekend Late Mornings are typically best for me.

Good idea! I'm in as well, with the same "evenings and weekends" openings.

By the way, I was made aware that the Chicago Tribune is hosting a short story contest worth cash moneys (up to $3,500) and accepting submissions up until the end of the month. I'm going to try to write a story and get it submitted by then. I figure we're not going to have the meeting before the deadline though, so I'd go ahead and give people the heads up here.

March is already pretty busy for me. Let's do this in April sometime, maybe the afternoon of the 12th?

I can do the afternoon of the 12th. Where? Perhaps somewhere with a touch of food and booze?
