Focused Writing Session (SE Denver)
Have you started a book but have yet to finish it? Is your blog is dying a slow death because you're not writing your posts like you're supposed to? Had high hopes for your writing project, but you're no closer to completing it than you were six months ago? Tired of the excuses you've been telling yourself? If so, do something about it. Join us for highly focused timed writing sessions and get the writing done. We employ the Pomodoro Technique* to motivate ourselves to write. The 2 hour writing session is split into four 25 minutes of focused writing with 5 minute breaks in between. During those 25 minutes of writing, you keep the pen moving or your fingers typing on the keyboard. Forget about spelling and grammar ... for now. You can fix that during the rewrite and the edit. The most important thing while in that 25 minutes is getting the words on the page, because as the saying goes: "The enemy is not the badly written page; it is the empty page." So bring your writing instruments of choice and get ready to make real progress with your writing project. Stop letting your writing dreams slip away. Remember: Writing begets writing. There's no other way to do it. *  Websites that explain the Pomodoro Technique in more detail: http://allindiewriters.com/quick-tip-the-pomodoro-technique-for-authors/ http://www.marydemuth.com/the-pomodoro-technique-me-productivity/ http://scottnesbitt.net/weblog/using-the-pomodoro-technique-with-your-writing/

What we're about

Rocky Mountain Women Writers isn’t just another writers group. If you are looking for a community that will support you all the way through to actually finish that project you’ve been hiding away, this is the place for you. You’ll find a plethora of inspiration, motivation and new writing friends of all ages and experiences. Writing is a journey and we enjoy every step together. With regular focused writing sessions along with writing retreats, creativity exploration and word game nights - time together is always well spent.

We are a gathering of women in Denver who represent a diverse range of genres and share a common passion for writing. With such a unique collection of writers we foster a very rewarding and expansive approach to exploring writing skills and techniques. We learn invaluable information from each other covering a variety of topics in a friendly environment. We have had to start charging yearly membership dues of $10USD to help cover Meetup's subscription fees (charged to group organizers), room usage fees and other minor expenses, but it’s worth every cent. The rewards of our time spent together shines through in our work.

We are proud of the diversity present amongst us, which include poets, children’s book writers, novelists, bloggers, journalists, non-fiction, women’s lit, romance writers and more. Our meetings involve writing exercises, prompts and critiquing, as well as time to work on individual projects.

Our mission is to inspire women to write from the heart and follow their dreams. We are all equals regardless of education, publications or literary achievements. We do, however, love to celebrate our accomplishments and are very proud of all of our members! Creativity, support and encouragement are at the heart of what we do. We look forward to welcoming you!
