Sit Down, Shut Up, and Write! Meetup *Trianon* WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON

The Format:

1:00 to 1:30 (The "Sit Down" part): The first thirty minutes is reserved for introductions, chit-chat, purchasing food and drink, etc.

1:30 to 2:30 (The "Shut Up, and Write" part): We stop talking PROMPTLY at 1:30 and write for one hour.

2:30: After the hour has concluded, you can continue to write, 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 I encourage everyone to support our local businesses by making a purchase. Please do not bring outside food and drink. Trianon has a wide selection of coffee drinks, smoothies, desserts, and snacks.

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!

    each of the three times i've attended, the event has been populated by very nice people, all of whom open up, shut up, and open up again, appropriately, as suggested. if you're thinking about coming to this meetup, please don't, because i'm embarrassingly selfish and don't want to be outside with my nose pressed against the window.

    Hey Marritt. Here's a tip from my experience: just show up even when the group is RSVP'd full. In the worst case, I sit outside the room. Most of the time, however, someone doesn't show and I'm in like Flynn. I think I've had to sit outside the room just once.

    Thanks! I just saw a spot open at 11:26 am and took it! I don't have my computer with me, and won't have time to get it, but I'll bring an old fashioned notebook and will be there by 1:30. Excited to come back!! See you soon :-)

    Hey Marrit! I personally live farther south than Trianon and it's the closest place to my home that has a room big enough to accommodate even that many. But keep checking back- frequently we drop well below 10 attendees on the day of the meeting. Best wishes for your recovery! Take care of yourself!

    And Johnny, we'll see you soon, I'm sure. :)

    Since I left the group due to my car accident, I have not been able to make it back in. Since there always seem to be more than 10, might there be a possibility of finding another location that would accommodate a larger group? Or does anyone want to get together in a second group on Wednesdays? I am in the Arboretum-Northwest hills area, if anyone else is interested? Good luck!!
