• What we'll do
Join us for 80 minutes of writing! We’ve discovered that it’s strikingly helpful to write with other writers. See if it’s true for you at 5:30pm on Friday afternoons.
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.
5:00 - quick intros.
5:10 - timer starts: write for 80 minutes.
6:30 - (the end) chat / take off / move to a new location to socialize or eat dinner. Quills Coffee (Firehouse) closes at 7:00pm.
OPTIONAL SOCIALIZING happens at 6:30pm. 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 Quills Coffee!
• What to bring
Whatever you need to be able to write!
Bring earbuds/earplugs if you want to block the cafe’s overhead music or the occasional conversation by other patrons.
We may not always be able to get a table close to plugs, so bring laptops pre-charged when possible.
