Shut Up and Write! East Bay

Join other writers for two hours of focused writing!

Head to the back room and the organizer will announce the meet-up at 7:00.

7:00 - Introductions
7:10 - Shut up and Write!
8:50 - Brief Check-in
9:00- The Beanery closes.  For those interested there's two other cafes across the street that stay open til 10.

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.

Join or login to comment.

    I'd appreciate if there was some kind of check-in where folks at least introduced themselves and maybe said something about what they planned to work on. Maybe this happened in the back room but if so, word of it didn't get to those of us in the front. Also, perhaps a sign identifying the organizers or maybe they could introduce themselves. I guess it's possible that the other attendees all knew one another so these formalities were deemed unnecessary. As for camaraderie, this was not much different for me than if I'd gone solo to a coffee shop to write. Having said all that I did manage to stay and get some work done.

      So sorry, Paul! Yes, we are always in back. I wasn't watching for a sign because I'm a regular. But apologies on behalf of the group for that.
