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.


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 found a seat. I am the first table on the second row closest to the wichcraft register. I will have my infamous purple top water bottle. If you have not met me, then I am asian, wear glasses and wearing a light blue-ish shirt with khaki pants. If I have my headphones on, feel free to interrupt.

    Hey, everyone. It will be awhile until I'm able to make it least a month. My daughter's got her 8th grade prom tonight, as well as her preparation of graduation and high school. I have to move by the end of July in addition to still seeking employment. I will keep everybody posted. Until then, I will miss everyone.

      No pressure. Do what you need to do and we will miss as well but welcome you back when you return.

    Ok, since I heard we had two Wednesday in a row where the atrium was close due to a private event, I call the information booth yesterday and they told me that there is no private event happening today. So hopefully, nothing will happen today. I will post a comment later once I get settled in at the atrium.
