The Fees:

There is no fee to attend, but in exchange for the private meeting room we are expected to make food and drink purchases. When you pay, please tell the barista that you are with our Meetup group so that your purchases can be tracked.

So that's it. No more excuses. No more procrastination. Fire up your laptops and sharpen your pencils. Then join us to sit down, shut up, and write!

    Making time for some of these meets will be dificult, but I have been working on a book for a few years and it is starting to gel. This is my first project like this. I have read tons of books, I travel and pay attention to what makes a good book good. Such as good character development and a story withen a story. This is harder to do than I thought, but I think I can.

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
