Shut Up and Write! East Bay

Join host Nina and other writers for two hours of focused writing!  It's all about whatever you need to write - short story, novel, poem, memoir, thesis, or a manifesto!  Bring a laptop, bring a pen, bring a notebook.  We'll introduce ourselves and then write!

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.

    I arrived 10 minutes late and wasn't able to find the meetup group among all the people sitting at tables quietly working on their computers at the Beanery. I did end up sitting near 2 other writers in the meetup group. They had arrived on time, but hadn't found anyone else who rsvped. But 2 other writers was enough for me! And The Beanery was a good place to sit and write. I'm going back!

    Hi all, I'm so sorry, but I'm not able to make it tonight. I have a sinus infection. For those who are new, the host (that's me!) does a brief intro before we start. If someone would like to do that, great! If not, sorry I can't be there, I hope you have fun night writing and I'll see you all next week!

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.
