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

What: Sit Down, Shut Up, and Write! Meetup *Dougherty Arts Center: Room TBA* - EVENING

When: Monday, November 15,[masked]:30 PM

Where: Dougherty Arts Center
1110 Barton Springs Rd
Austin, TX 78704

BE WARNED: Although there is Wi-Fi, the signal is weak and service comes and goes. If you absolutely depend on internet connectivity to write, you might be out of luck!

Also, the Reading for Writers Meetup follows the SD, SU, & W Meetup, so be prepared to skedaddle by 6:30. Or better yet, stay and join the discussion!

The Format:

4:30 to 5:00 (The "Sit Down" part): The first thirty minutes is reserved for introductions, chit-chat, purchasing food and drink (vending machine only), etc.

5:00 to 6:00 (The "Shut Up, and Write" part): We stop talking PROMPTLY at 5:00 and write for one hour.

6:00: 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.

There is a parking lot in front of the building as well as additional parking along the side. The "Event Only" Parking Signs do not apply to us.

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. Other than a couple of vending machines, this venue does not sell refreshments. However, you are welcome to bring your own food and drink (no alcohol). We are expected to clean up after ourselves and leave the room in good condition.

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!
