The Daytime Mission Shut Up and Write! is still going strong, but we've added a new day and a new location that is a little more Castro adjacent. I hope you'll join us for some daytime writing.
Here's the details:
• Look for the MeetUp sign, and come say hi. 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!
• This particular venue is a little wonky, so having a large block of tables is difficult. We'll try to grab a few that are all next to each other if we can. Look for the signs.
• There will be two focused 1.25 hour sessions of writing. No one will look at what you've written when the meetup is over.
• Please plan on purchasing some food or beverage to support the venue. They are offering to host us with the assumption that we will be good for business.
Here's the schedule:
10:00 - 10:15 - Coffee and chatting
10:15 - 11:30 - I'll set the timer and we'll write for an hour and fifteen minutes.
11:30 - 11:45 - quick break for coffee, stretching of legs, congratulating each other on 75 minutes of good focus, etc.
11:45 - 1:00 - 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 headphones or similar device if you need to block out distraction! There are some electrical outlets, but you might want to start out with your laptop battery fully charged, in case it's difficult for you to get to power. Wifi is available with a purchase. AND: Parking can be challenging, so use public transit if possible or leave plenty of time to find a spot.
I look forward to seeing you all on Tuesday!
