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.

    It was great meeting some of you last night. It took me over an hour in traffic from Fremont but was worth it to have some quiet time with others to just think and write. Looking forward to our next meeting.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
