I will try to grab the large boardroom style table next to the door that opens onto 6th street whenever possible, but we'll have a sign for whatever table we land on. :)

• What we'll do
Join us for an hour of writing! We’ve discovered that it’s strikingly helpful to write with other writers. See if it’s true for you at 8AM on Friday mornings.
Be it a book, blog, script, essay, dissertation, resume, melody, poem or just plain work stuff, you are invited to write it with us. No one will see what you've written or give you unsolicited advice. Instead of just thinking about writing, come and get some real writing done.

8:00 - SESSION 1: quick intros.
8:10 - timer starts: write for 1 hour.
9:00 - chat / take off / keep writing.

OPTIONAL SOCIALIZING happens at 9A-9:30ish (I have to leave by 9:40 for work, but that doesn't mean others have to!). Writing is very solitary. Connecting (and sometimes even commiserating) with other writers is a cool thing.

BEING LATE IS OKAY: just show up and get settled, then check-in with me after the session. (I’ll be the person with the Shut Up & Write! sign.) If you were on time, please be willing to make room for the friendly latecomer.

Happy writing and I look forward to seeing you at CCAD!

• What to bring
Whatever you need to be able to write!
Bring earbuds/earplugs if you want to block noise or the occasional conversation by other patrons. Electrical outlets are limited, so charge your devices before whenever possible.

• Important to know
Roosevelt has a small parking lot on the east side of the building (enter from N 6th street) & if it fills, there's metered street parking along Long & and also along 6th.
