What we're about

Do you have a project that you need to focus on? Maybe a piece of code, an illustration, a business plan, a website, or a piece of writing?

Inspired by the Shut Up and Write! group, this group is for people who want to purposefully take the time to shut out all distractions and focus on whatever they're bringing into the world.

Format: Two 45-minute sessions of focused work on your project, separated by a 15-minute break.

Tips for getting the most out of your time at the meetup: - if you're working on a laptop, charge it beforehand (some outlets available but easiest to come fully charged) - bring headphones to help block out noise - do whatever you can to avoid distractions during the session (e.g., don't connect to wifi if possible, turn off your phone, plan what you're going to work on beforehand) Many thanks to The Castle for hosting the meetup! <3
