Writing Sprint

Get ready to write...a lot! We Nashville writers love to get together and discuss writing or critique our drafts. But this meetup gives us the opportunity to write together with the purpose of cheering each other on, keeping focused on writing for a set number of hours.

We will start out briefly with introductions and expressing our writing goals for the Writing Sprint. Then we will write our hands off! The last few minutes will consist of a discussion regarding our achievements and obstacles from the sprint.

Members may choose to leave at their own leisure. There is no pressure to stay longer than you are able. But we will certainly encourage you to meet your goal.

Members may also feel free to continue their writing until the cafe closes, even skipping the closure discussion if you are chasing your characters around the page and don't have good stopping point.

What to bring: Your favored writing materials. Maybe earphones to block out the sounds, if you so please.

      Same as I said to Kelly: Just join the wait list for this one and show up even if you don't make it to the RSVP list. Sometimes people on that RSVP don't make it and forget to update their RSVP.

    Hey Samantha! Just saw the Aug 31st date. I'd like to RSVP, please. The Wilson Co Fair was fun and I sold a few books, but I missed the opportunity to be with all of you writing!

      We missed you too! Glad you could sell some books! Just join the wait list for this one and show up even if you don't make it to the RSVP list. Sometimes people on that RSVP don't make it and forget to update their RSVP.

    Hi all. This is the link to Brain Pickings which I mentioned today. It sends out great articles each week which are thought provoking:

    Here is a link to one of the articles on writing, profiling author Charles Bukowski:

    What a great event Samantha! It was great pushing past some of my internal boundaries because of having the vibe of everyone else there. Thank you for putting it on.

    My weather app tells me that the rain will stop this morning and won't begin again until six. But if any of you decide not to come, please let us all know. See you soon!

    I really hate to miss this, but just found out the Wilson County Fair has a spot for me at their Author's Day event. Can't pass up an opportunity to meet some folks and sell some books. Please keep me in the loop for the next one. Thank you!
