What we're about

Let's help each other write. We mostly just to write together and keep each other motivated to write on a regular basis. This is a way to make a regular commitment to your writing and to keep from feeling like you're not all alone while you're doing it.

I'll post something once a week. Right now we're meeting at a Starbucks in Naperville. I'll get there by 5:00 and plan to stay until 8:00. People can come and go when it's convenient. At around 6:30 we'll take a break to talk about what we're writing, but mostly we'll just write together.

I'm open to other writing-related ideas, so let me know if you have something in mind.

Virtual let's write together

Online event

Even in the best of times, writing can be a lonely experience. It's easier when you know you're not alone. And it's good to make the commitment to writing by getting it on your calendar and sticking to it. This is a virtual Meetup. If you sign up for this event, make sure you have notifications turned on so you see comments as they are posted. Post comments on this page to say when you arrive and when you leave. This is a virtual session. We'll get together on Zoom, chat sometime in the middle about what we're doing, and show off our pets to each other.

Come and write with me

Starbucks

Come and write with me. I'll be there by 5:00 and stay until around 8:00 (depending on how long I can sit). Come and leave when you want. We'll take a break from writing around 6:30 to introduce ourselves and talk about what we're doing and goals for our writing. We meet in the Starbucks on Naper & 75th. It's across the parking lot from Mariano's. If you're not familiar with it, please check the address in the location box. I wouldn't want you to get lost. Please consider the following: 1. I understand that schedules change, but if that happens, please change your RSVP. If you sign up but don't show up more than once, you'll be dropped from the group. 2. Please be a good citizen and buy something to eat or drink. 3. Don't assume that you'll be able to plug in your devices (if the weather is good, we may write outside). Charge up before you come. 4. I like writing in coffee shops, but it can get loud, and the music can be distracting. I've downloaded a white noise generator to my phone and keep headphones with me. Think about how you'll deal with distractions so you can accomplish everything you want. 5. This Starbucks can be on the chilly side, so consider bringing a sweater or jacket. 6. I've had to cancel a couple of meetings due to blizzards or ice storms. Please consider turning on notifications to make sure you hear about cancellations. I look forward to writing with you!
