NOTE: Our member Howard will be organizing today's session as the organizer is unavailable.

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 on this Saturday morning!
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.
9:30 - SESSION 1: quick intros.
10:00- timer starts: write for 1 hour.
11:00 - (the end) chat / take off / keep writing.
OPTIONAL SOCIALIZING happens at the end of the writing sessions if members are so inclined. 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 soon!
