Shut Up and Write! Mission Daytime

Hey Everybody,

The Daytime Mission Shut Up and Write! is a great place to get some writing done in the middle of the week.  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 noisy. 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 on Valencia if you don't mind walking a few blocks.

I look forward to seeing you all on Wednesday.

    I would love to join you guys but am currently living rural in Etna, California about 5-6 hours north of you ... however if anyone is willing to bring a tablet or laptop with Skype on it and let me sit in virtually I would be thrilled to be there ... I could use the spark for getting going on some work I want to write but just don't set aside the time. Please let me know and I will be there. ~Joysters

      Hi Joysters. We're not able to accommodate virtual attendees at this time. Have you looked into Camp NaNoWriMo? Or other writing groups with virtual attendance in mind?
