Hello, I'm interested in some dancing and having a good evening with friendly people.
Welcome to Shut Up & Write! I am happy to see you have already attended two meetups. I liked your very astute comment about writing versus socializing. I have been one of the worst at talking too much, but I have learned over the last year that the way to gain the respect of other writers is to support them by letting them get more writing done. I find when I do that I have more meaningful discussions, albeit brief ones. Looking forward to meeting you.
