Shut Up and Write! East Bay (Alameda) Marathon -- Outdoors!

Write in the great outdoors!

Julie's has an expansive urban garden in the back. It's a tranquil, writer-friendly space with plenty of power outlets and spacious tables. Unlike San Francisco, we don't do fog in Alameda, so it's generally sunny (with a nice bay breeze) at this time of year. The big table (our favorite) sits under a a gazebo screen that lets dappled light filter through but reduces screen glare on laptops. Trees and flora abound.

And the coffee? Top-notch.

There is non-metered parking less than a block on either side of Park Street, which connects to 880 (as 23rd Avenue) just a mile from Julie's.

Bring a sweater or jacket for later in the session.

10:00 a.m. - Introductions
10:10 a.m. - Shut up and Write!
12:30 p.m. -- Check in, have lunch
2:00 p.m. -- Brief check in

We're less time-structured within our six-hour window than some of the more established Shut Up & Write venues. But we're here, writing, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. every Tuesday. Drop in during the schedule allows ... but please change your RSVP if you change your mind.

    Yes, agreed except that later in the afternoon it did get windy and colder. And there was some noise but nothing a pair of earplugs didn't drown out. Great group, I agree, so nice to meet everyone!

    It was cool and overcast today which made the outside nice. Small, good group!

      Afternoons only the part of my brain that writes badly works.

    Unfortunately, I'm in the City today -- but the group will meet in outdoor garden area at Julie's, as always. Write well -- and see you next Tuesday!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
