Announcing a new Meetup for Sit Down, Shut Up, and Write!!

What: Sit Down, Shut Up, and Write! Meetup *Opa*

When: Sunday, July 25,[masked]:00 PM

Where: Opa Coffee & Wine Bar
2050 South Lamar
Austin, TX 78704
(512)[masked]

The Format:

2:00 to 2:30 (The "Sit Down" part): The first thirty minutes is reserved for introductions, chit-chat, purchasing food and drink, etc.

2:30 to 3:30 (The "Shut Up, and Write" part): We start PROMPTLY at 2:30 and write for one hour.

3:30: 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.

The Fees:

There is no fee to attend, but I encourage everyone to support our local businesses by making a purchase. Teo has a wide selection of coffee drinks, beer, wine, and various treats and eats.

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.

This is NOT critique group. If you want to swap manuscripts with someone or garner feedback, please make those arrangements BEFORE or AFTER the writing hour.

Do not bring children or pets.

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!
