Shut Up & Write! SoMA SF

You will see progress in your writing project by spending the minimum of a single hour per week on it. This is your practice/focus time, so we hope to see you there.

Join other writers for an hour of focused writing!

8:00 - Introductions

8:10 - Get down to business

9:10 - Brief Check-in

9:15 - People can continue to work, chat, or take off as they like. Crossroads is open till 10 pm.

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.

PLEASE NOTE: NO BASEBALL GAME TONIGHT! We already won ALL the games. :)

LOCATION INFORMATION: There is only one electrical outlet, so make sure your laptop battery is fully charged. There is no Wi-Fi at Crossroads. The radio is occasionally distracting for some, bring your iPod/earplugs if you need to block out distraction.

Quote of the Week: "Writing is hard, even for authors who do it all the time." ~ Roger Angell

    It was my first and I was surprised how fast the time passed. Great opportunity to write.

    As someone who needs a bit of a push to get writing, this was perfect: a quiet cafe, you walk in, say hello, sit down and crank it out. Being in the presence of other writers looking for a bit of comradery makes a solitary practice more supportive. Keep writing!

    I have just moved to the East Bay area, and am kind of a, shall we say, country bumpkin. Is this location in San Francisco easy to get to? Also, I take it that we bring whatever we are working on and use the time to right, correct?
