Shut Up and Write! Mission Daytime

Hey Everybody,

The Daytime Mission Shut Up and Write! is underway.  I hope you'll join us.

Here's the details:

• We will set up in the back of the cafe. Look for the Meetup sign.

• 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 necessarily know you're there for Shut Up & Write!

• There will be two focused 1.5 hour sessions of writing. No one will look at what you've written when the meetup is over.

Here's how it works:

9:00 - 9:15 - Brief introductions
9:15 - 10:45 - I'll set the timer and we'll write for an hour and a half.
10:45 - 11 - quick break for coffee, stretching of legs, congratulating each other on 90 minutes of good focus, etc.
11:00 - 12:30 - Heads down, keyboards clacking (or pen flying, if that's your MO)

People can continue to work, chat, or take off as they like.

PLEASE NOTE: The conversations of other patrons who are not there for the meetup are occasionally distracting. Consider bringing 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 on Wednesday.

    Thanks for coming everyone. Just a few things from the minutes. - For anyone interested, NaNoWriMo starts on Friday:
    - If you do it, and you want to attend an evening of crazy writing fun (with an open bar and lots of candy) then check out Night of Writing Dangerously:
    - If that doesn't sound like your style, but you still want to support amazing writing programs for kids and adults, why not help me out!
    - Lastly, I'll be away on 11/27, so if anyone wants to be substitute organizer for the MeetUp, let me know!

    Great to see you all. As always, send me a note if there's any way we can make the Wednesday SU&W! better.
