Shut Up & Write! East Bay Marathon

Join fellow writers for a marathon session of focused writing.  With this location we ALWAYS advise prompt arrival if you need electrical outlet access.  And please check our new lunch procedure with Mo'Joe.

Hosted by Jerome.

10:00am - Check-in, Introductions, PLACE LUNCH ORDER AND PAY FOR IT AND TELL MO'JOE WHAT TIME YOU'D LIKE IT READY.  They have been very accommodating.

10:15am - Write for one-and-a-half hours

11:45am - Lunch break, check-in, and socializing

12:30pm - Write for one-and-a-half hours

02:00pm - Check-in, beverage/snack, chat

02:30pm - Write for one-and-a-half hours

04:00pm - Session dismissed.  Keep writing or start talking.

If you're spending too much time THINKING about writing, come and join us for some marathon sessions, 4.5 hour or more of focused writing!

1) Please try to arrive a bit early to get a seat with the group.

2) Order something from Mo's - we want to keep them happy and keep coming back!  And be sure to have lunch here as well, then they'll really like us.

3) If you arrive late try not to disrupt the writing flow.  Find a seat somewhere, start writing, and we'll check in with you at the next break.

4) During breaks, make sure to purchase something from the cafe
if you can. That will cause them to want us to come back again
and again.

5) If you can't make it, please un-RSVP at least a few days in
advance if at all possible. Late RSVP changers have prevented
eager writers from attending past overly subscribed Marathons!

    Jerome does great meet up. And it's not that easy. Don't really know how ya clear tables for a meet up in a public space, but JG does it with style... I like the brief check-ins and then everyone gets serious and shuts up and writes! See you all next week!

    I have to tend to stuff at home but am with you in spirit!
    My check in: working on my article. If anything changes, I might swing by later.

    Lisa and I both mentioned this the last time I was there so I thought it'd be worthwhile to let people know that Scrivener (an awesome program for planning and writing a book) is on sale today for 20 bucks. This is not a referral link and I am no advertising anything. I just genuinely like the program:

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
