SSWG Tuesday Night Meeting - Breaking Up Writer's Block

  • Sep 24, 2013 · 7:00 PM

Welcome to the Silver Spring Writer's Group Tuesday Meeting!

The Tuesday meetings are a great opportunity to get to know the writers in our group.  With a more casual format than the Saturday meetings, we typically meet from 7pm - 8:30 pm ET on the fourth Tuesday of the month.

The meeting is divided into two parts:

(1)  Introductions

(2)  Targeted Discussion 

Introductions is a time to introduce yourself, your work, and any issues you may be facing that you think your fellow writers can help with.

Targeted Discussion is just that - a chance to talk about anything and everything related to your writing, writing in general, literature as we know it today!  Typically I'll try to provide a handout or resources focused on a particular area of writing (such as narrative structure, character, dialogue, etc).  Sometimes we also do writing activities, where each individual will have approximately 20 minutes to write and then share (if you want!) with our colleagues to get additional ideas about what's working.

Focus for the 9/24/13 Meeting: Breaking Up Writer's Block!  Having trouble getting back on track with your writing? Not sure where to go next? We'll be doing exercises to tackle writer's block and to generate ideas that will help you move forward on your projects.  

Parking Information: Closest free parking - Garage at 2nd Avenue and Cameron Street, across from the Tastee Diner.  More information at

    The exercises were good, but as usual, the meeting place was noisy, especially the folks who chose to sit right next to us and have a loud conversation. But then they may have been thinking the same about us!

      This is a good point though - for the kind of exercises we do, it might be nice to have a quieter location. I am changing jobs in October and might be able to stake out a table at Caribou or Panera, if we're still getting around 6- 8 people. It's just hard to find a table that will fit all of us without having to give people crazy eyes.

      Have you considered Zed's coffee shop? It's just a little ways down Geoegia Ave. When I've been there it's been pretty quiet/empty.
