Shut Up and Write! Mission SF (Mission Creek Cafe/968 Valencia St)

Hey Everybody,

First, the reminders:

  1. We are set up in the back of the cafe behind the counter, near the bathroom.  Look for the Meetup sign.
  2. Please check in with me when you arrive. Because we are in a public space with people who will not be there for the meetup, I won't know necessarily know you're there for Shut Up & Write.
  3. This is a one hour session of focused, productive writing.  No one will look at what you've written when the meetup is over.

Here's how it works.

  • 6:40 pm - brief introductions ("My name is Cindy and I'm writing a ____").
  • I'll set the timer and we'll write for an hour.
  • 7:40 pm - the timer goes off, the writing session is over.

People can continue to work, chat, or take off as they like.  Mission Creek Cafe is open until 9 pm.

PLEASE NOTE: The music and other patrons of the coffee shop who are not there for the meetup are occasionally distracting for some so bring your iPod or similar device if you need to block out distraction! There are plenty of electrical outlets, so no worries about making sure your laptop battery is fully charged. AND: Parking can be challenging, so use public transit if possible or leave plenty of time to find a spot; there's more parking south of Valencia if you don't mind walking a few blocks.

I look forward to seeing you all this Wednesday for another productive session.

Thanks,

Cindy

    Well, Winnie, you are certainly making your point. I did not know about Salman khan, and I am absolutely empowered by reading your post. I look forward to writing with the group, and I look forward to meeting you.

    Great meetup, I finished my post: https://medium.com/changing-the-world-with-lines-of-code/4a73e1fba22c if anyone is curious. ;) Look forward to having the next one!

      Winnie, this is a great post! I've always thought that this time in our lives is particularly exciting because of all these resources available to us. Do you mind if I post the link on the Shut Up & Write Facebook page with a note that you worked on it during the meetup? Looking forward to seeing you soon.

      Hey Cindy, sure! The point of writing these posts is to hopefully reach as many people as possible to remind them how empowered we actually are. :)

    1250 words freshly drafted in the hour. Not bad for me. I'll definitely return, it definitely is nice to have a reason to walk somewhere to right rather than stay home all the time.

      1250 is great! Thanks for coming. I'm there every Wed at 6:30 pm.

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.
