Sit Down, Shut Up, and Write! Meetup *Genuine Joe* TUESDAY

The Format:

6:30 to 7:00 (The "Sit Down" part): The first thirty minutes is reserved for introductions, chitchat, purchasing food and drink, etc.

7:00 to 8:00 (The "Shut Up and Write" part): We stop talking PROMPTLY at 7:00 and write for one hour.

8:00: After the hour has concluded, you can continue writing, leave, talk, or do whatever trips your trigger. Please don't disturb those still working. Likewise, please don't give others the stink-eye if they begin talking amongst themselves.

The Rules:
Click here to read all of the rules for this Meetup, including the RSVP/no-show policy.

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!

    I had a little change of plans. A surprise visit from friends in town for SXSW.

    Hi guys. I'm not going to be able to make the Meetup tonight. It looks to be a lot of regular attendees thus far, so I'm guessing you can all greet the newcomers and "Shut Up & Write" without my being there. See you next week!
