Shut Up & Write! East Bay Marathon

Join fellow writers for a marathon session of focused writing. With this location we ALWAYS advise prompt arrival if you need electrical outlet access. And please check our new lunch procedure with Mo'Joe.

Hosted by Jerome.

10:00am - Check-in, Introductions, PLACE LUNCH ORDER AND PAY FOR IT AND TELL MO'JOE WHAT TIME YOU'D LIKE IT READY. They have been very accommodating.

10:15am - Write for one-and-a-half hours

11:45am - Lunch break, check-in, and socializing

12:30pm - Write for one-and-a-half hours

02:00pm - Check-in, beverage/snack, chat

02:30pm - Write for one-and-a-half hours

04:00pm - Session dismissed. Keep writing or start talking.

If you're spending too much time THINKING about writing, come and join us for some marathon sessions, 4.5 hour or more of focused writing!

1) Please try to arrive a bit early to get a seat with the group.

2) Order something from Mo's - we want to keep them happy and keep coming back! And be sure to have lunch here as well, then they'll really like us.

3) If you arrive late try not to disrupt the writing flow. Find a seat somewhere, start writing, and we'll check in with you at the next break.

4) During breaks, make sure to purchase something from the cafe
if you can. That will cause them to want us to come back again
and again.

5) If you can't make it, please un-RSVP at least a few days in
advance if at all possible. Late RSVP changers have prevented
eager writers from attending past overly subscribed Marathons!

    Thanks to the the woman (from the picture I would say Lisa Carrera) who told the group about scrivener. I did some research and downloaded the free trial and it seems to be very awesome. I l

    Woke up with some eye problem - have distinct feeling that I am calling in sick, with attendant lingering guilt.

      Right now, Shanna, they seem to be happening almost every day. As long as you're a member, you should get notifications or be able to view the calendar of upcoming marathons and shorter sessions.

    recently hearing on tv and liking some quotes by Kahlil Gibran, I looked him up and read Sand and Foam. On writing: "should you care to write...you must.. have.. the knowledge of the music of words, the art of being artless, and the magic of loving your reader." also, "all our words are but crumbs that fall from the feast of the mind."
