(The "Shut Up, and Write" part): We start 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 are talking amongst themselves. Just be considerate and everything should be fine.
Triumph Cafe closes at 9:00.The Fees:
There is no fee to attend. That's right! Zero dollars and zero cents, my friends. I, as organizer, will be covering all administrative
costs of this and future Meetups.
I encourage everyone to support our local businesses by making a purchase
. They have a wide selection of coffee drinks, teas, pastries, Vietnamese food, and yes, even beer and wine. The Rules:
We won't go so far as to gag you and chain you to your laptop, but during the writing hour, talking is not allowed
Reading and surfing the web is also a no-no unless it's just for quick reference checks. Any lengthy researching should come AFTER the hour is up.
This is NOT critique group. If you want to swap manuscripts with someone and garner some feedback, great! But make those arrangements BEFORE or AFTER the writing hour.
Please do not bring children or pets. Best to leave Junior and Fido at home so everyone can work relatively distraction-free.
I need to know in advance how many seats to reserve, so please RSVP if you are coming and un-RSVP if you are unable to make it!
Finally, if you are late, and we have already begun writing, just sit down, shut up, and start
! There is no need to apologize or explain.
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!
