NYC Shut Up & Write Meetup! - Columbus Circle

Join other writers for an hour of focused writing!

6-7 pm - Show up early, stake out a spot and either socialize or get a jump on writing.
7:00 - Start. Introductions, and we'll share what we're working on
7:05 - Get down to business. An hour of silence and solid writing!
8:05- Brief follow up. People are encouraged to share experiences & ideas, network or take off as they like. Feel free to keep writing if you've got the momentum going!

If you're spending too much time THINKING about writing, come and join us for a session of focused writing. It may just be "pipe-cleaning" for now, but you'll feel better showing up at the page. No one will see what you've written or give you unsolicited advice.

WHERE: David Rubenstein Atrium, 62nd and Broadway.

SOME TIPS:

Please, come on time! If you come late, we will have already started.
Bring headphones if you don't want outside noise distraction.

Please RSVP only if you can make it, and update as soon as possible if your plans change. We have had far too many no-shows.

You will see progress in your writing project by spending the minimum of a single hour per week on it. This is your practice/focus time, so I hope to see you there.

    I'm here sitting facing the wall under the huge panoramic moving images. I'm wearing a grey wool cap, grey vest and black long sleeve shirt. I've got my HP laptop open and connected to earphones.

    I'm sharing a table with a man wearing a dark shirt, scarf and a wool hat with a band of diamond patterns. A very large cup of Starbucks coffee is on the table.

    Is this still on? I know aspiring writers won't let a little snow get in the way:)

    Wish I could, but that clashes with a Dale Carnegie course. Next time!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
