The Northern NJ Writers Meetup Group Monthly Meetup

  • May 13, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Please note the reduced number of RSVPs!

The prompt is "that damned cat"


Remember, our prompts are OPTIONAL. You may use them in anyway you want (as a title, theme or subject) or skip it completely and bring your own work.

Our format HAS CHANGED: 1-4 pages, double-spaced (with your name on it, and enough copies for all attending).

See you then.

NOTE: It is my hope that this meeting will move upstairs, but look for us first downstairs.

NOTE #2: If you arrive early (before 6:45) look for me in the Cafe section.

Note #3: I would love to avoid having this meeting exceed three hours in length. To keep this meeting under the 3 hour limit, here are the changes effective immediately:

1. Don't be late. We start at 7.
2. When we're giving our feedback (the second half of the meeting), please limit yourself to 2 comments. Feel free to write tons on the pieces of work, but when speaking, everyone gets 2.
3. If you were unable to read something (for whatever reason), then you don't comment. (That one is sort of obvious) -- Read what you can, that's what matters.

Note #4 -- If you don't have enough copies of your work to pass around, pass out what you have. We're all adults, and we'll manage.

Note #5 -- Please staple your stuff (AND PUT YOUR NAME ON IT) together. It makes this whole process so much easier.

Join or login to comment.

      Since I was totally confused by all of the conflicting info, I checked with John Adamas, the Meetup Organizer, and the Northern NJ Writers Meetup Group WILL MEET on MONDAY, 5/13, at 7 PM at the B&N in Paramus as usual!

    • Kris F.

      Thank you for that, Berti. It sure would stink for the entire meeting to have to be cancelled bc a select few couldn't make it. See you guys Monday.

      1 · May 13, 2013

  • Kris F.

    I'm going Monday! Hope to see you, Berti!
    It looks like a select few are meeting Tuesday, but Monday's still on.

    Hi Linda, I don't mean to belabor the point, but I am still confused, because the date on top and on the calendar is still listed as Monday and because of the posts. When you say: "this month's meet up for LAST MONTH'S (emphasis added) group will be Tuesday... ," do you mean that ONLY people who attended last month will meet on Tuesday, and, that anyone else who is attending this month, who did NOT attend last month, will meet on Monday? Or, will EVERYONE in the group who is attending this month's Meetup meet on Tuesday? I recognize that you said that anyone can join in on that date but I need to know ... .

    Sorry to be so specific but it comes from my background.

    Thanks,

    Berti

    CONFIRMING & CLARIFYING for (hopefully) the last time for all of us. From what I gather from the posts below, the regular meeting is still on Monday 13th and that several folks, who can't come on Monday, and are, therefore, meeting on their own on Tuesday on 5/14th. Is this correct?

    May 10, 2013

  • Linda R.

    Dear Robert our meetup date this month has been changed to Tuesday, May 14th at 7:00 at B&N Paramus. Hope you can come.
