Shut Up & Write! East Bay Marathon

Join fellow writers for a marathon session of focused writing.  With this location we ALWAYS advise prompt arrival if you need electrical outlet access.  And please check our new lunch procedure with Mo'Joe.

Hosted by Cheryl!  Yeah, Cheryl!

10:00am - Check-in, Introductions, PLACE LUNCH ORDER AND PAY FOR IT AND TELL MO'JOE WHAT TIME YOU'D LIKE IT READY.  They have been very accommodating.

10:15am - Write for one-and-a-half hours

11:45am - Lunch break, check-in, and socializing

12:30pm - Write for one-and-a-half hours

02:00pm - Check-in, beverage/snack, chat

02:30pm - Write for one-and-a-half hours

04:00pm - Session dismissed.  Keep writing or start talking.

If you're spending too much time THINKING about writing, come and join us for some marathon sessions, 4.5 hour or more of focused writing!

1) Please try to arrive a bit early to get a seat with the group.

2) Order something from Mo's - we want to keep them happy and keep coming back!  And be sure to have lunch here as well, then they'll really like us.

3) If you arrive late try not to disrupt the writing flow.  Find a seat somewhere, start writing, and we'll check in with you at the next break.

4) During breaks, make sure to purchase something from the cafe
if you can. That will cause them to want us to come back again
and again.

5) If you can't make it, please un-RSVP at least a few days in
advance if at all possible. Late RSVP changers have prevented
eager writers from attending past overly subscribed Marathons!

    Just a quick note that I am going to be late arriving - please expect me after lunch. I am with my son at a Cub Scout Zoo Overnight in Oakland and will be returning late. Sorry for any inconvenience.

    And again, we are taking note of members who RSVP and no-show. It may affect our RSVPs going forward so please, be kind to Meetup, fellow Meeters, and Mo'Joe. Thanks!

    As noted, Cheryl has stepped up to be Host this week, and I will swing by. Note the new lunch procedure here, please! Thanks, and good writing to all!

    I absolutely need someone to help co-chair this and to help do so going forward.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
