Shut Up and Write! Mission Daytime

Hey Everybody,

The Daytime Mission Shut Up and Write! is a great place to get some writing done in the middle of the week.  I hope you'll join us.

Here's the details:

• We will set up in the back of the cafe. Look for the Meetup sign.

• Please check in with me when you arrive. Because we are in a public space with people who will not be there for the meetup, I won't necessarily know you're there for Shut Up & Write!

• There will be two focused 1.5 hour sessions of writing. No one will look at what you've written when the meetup is over.


Here's how it works:

9:00 - 9:15 - Brief introductions
9:15 - 10:45 - I'll set the timer and we'll write for an hour and a half.
10:45 - 11 - quick break for coffee, stretching of legs, congratulating each other on 90 minutes of good focus, etc.
11:00 - 12:30 - Heads down, keyboards clacking (or pen flying, if that's your MO)

People can continue to work, chat, or take off as they like.

PLEASE NOTE: The conversations of other patrons who are not there for the meetup are occasionally noisy. Consider bringing your iPod or similar device if you need to block out distraction! There are plenty of electrical outlets, so no worries about making sure your laptop battery is fully charged. AND: Parking can be challenging, so use public transit if possible or leave plenty of time to find a spot; there's more parking south on Valencia if you don't mind walking a few blocks.

I look forward to seeing you all on Wednesday.

Thanks, 


John 

Your Organizer

P.S. Borderlands currently does have free WIFI from 9am to 5pm.

    didn't check in because I was late. Table was full, so I sat at a table upfront. next week I'll be there earlier.

    I'm thinking of coming (first time) but have a Volunteer Appreciation thing to attend at my daughter's school (in the MIssion) that starts at 10.
    Should be able to get there about 11 or 11:15 -- would that work? Won't meet people, but would like to make myself write!

      Hi Nancy! You're welcome to sit down and join us at any time during the session. We generally start the second session promptly at 11, so just pull up a chair and make with the keyboard clicking. After the session ends at 12:30, please say hi, and chat for a bit. It's always lovely to have new members!
