Sit Down, Shut Up, and Write! Meetup *Trianon* WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON

The Format:

1:00 to 1:30 (The "Sit Down" part): The first thirty minutes is reserved for introductions, chit-chat, purchasing food and drink, etc.

1:30 to 2:30 (The "Shut Up, and Write" part): We stop talking PROMPTLY at 1:30 and write for one hour.

2:30: After the hour has concluded, you can continue to write, leave, talk, or do whatever trips your trigger. Please don't disturb those still working. Likewise, please don't give others the stink-eye if they begin talking amongst themselves.

Click here to read all of the rules for this Meetup, including the RSVP/no-show policy.

The Fees:

There is no fee to attend, but I encourage everyone to support our local businesses by making a purchase. Please do not bring outside food and drink. Trianon has a wide selection of coffee drinks, smoothies, desserts, and snacks.

So that's it. No more excuses. No more procrastination. Fire up your laptops and sharpen your pencils. Then join us to sit down, shut up, and write!

    I like this place (even though we'll have it for a short time now). Being around people is proper motivation to get your work done!

      I'm working on it. We now have an extremely reliable turnout for all three meetups, so I'm hoping they will find a way to let us continue reserving the room after they remodel it. It would seem to be in their best interests, after all, especially on Wednesdays when it's pretty quiet.

    I wrote 700 words in an hour. A great feat for me. This meet up really worked. A wonderful group of committed writers!

    Hopefully a space opens up for this "Sit Down..." first timer.

      Hi Jason, make sure to check on Wednesday morning. There are sometimes one or two late cancellations, but remember you would still have to sign up -- you don't get added from the waiting list automatically.

      Thanks for the info. Someone got lucky and grabbed a spot which opened before I noticed the email notification. I'll keep an eye out for another.
