Shut Up & Write! SoMA SF

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 we hope to see you there.

Join other writers for an hour of focused writing!

8:00 - Introductions

8:10 - Get down to business

9:10 - Brief Check-in

9:15 - People can continue to work, chat, or take off as they like. Crossroads is open till 10 pm.

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.

PLEASE NOTE: NO BASEBALL GAME TONIGHT! We already won ALL the games. :)

LOCATION INFORMATION: There is only one electrical outlet, so make sure your laptop battery is fully charged. There is no Wi-Fi at Crossroads. The radio is occasionally distracting for some, bring your iPod/earplugs if you need to block out distraction.

Quote of the Week: "Writing is hard, even for authors who do it all the time." ~ Roger Angell

    Coming back to my novel on Monday after not working on it for two days is always a revelation and a relief. Like stopping a movie in mid-frame, my characters are frozen in action, awaiting my key strokes.

    I did work at home for an hour after my misfire earlier this week, and I'm eager to try again next week. I think I need the "deadline" of something to work on Mondays nights.

    My project needs so much organization. I'm almost ashamed to bring in my broken laptop and assorted notes, but I have work to be done! Looking forward to the meeting, granted I can make it.

      Every hour counts toward getting that first draft finished!

    I have a small after-hours writing contract. Hoping to wrap it up fast and rejoin the group!

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.
