Shut Up & Write! Morning Session - Sacramento

  • Jun 9, 2014 · 9:30 AM

**Make sure to arrive no later than 9:45am.** 

**If you RSVP 'yes' but end up not being able to make it, PLEASE CHANGE your RSVP to 'not attending' so that we can plan accordingly. Thanks.**

Join other writers for an hour of focused writing!

9:30 - Arrival and getting seats, drinks, etc.
9:45 - Introductions
9:55 - Get down to business
10:55 - Finish up and have a brief check-in

After 11:00am, feel free to stay and keep writing and/or getting to know one another.

If you're spending too much time THINKING about writing, come join us for a session of focused writing. You will see progress in your writing by spending the minimum of a single hour per week on it. It may just be "pipe-cleaning" for now, but you'll feel better showing up at the page. No one will see what you've written or give you unsolicited advice. This is your practice/focus time, so we hope to see you there.

Notes: Electrical outlets are not always available, so if you plan to use a laptop, make sure it's fully charged. We all tend to spread out throughout the cafes while we're working; however, you're encouraged to share tables so we don't take up too much space.

    Sorry if I talked too much. You can see why I need the "Shut Up" part of this "Meet Up" group. That said it was nice to meet you all.
    The link for the writer's conference is http://www.bouchercon2014.com/ and I forgot the grant is for women of color but if you know of someone who might be eligible the link is http://www.sistersincrime.org/associations/10614/files/14EleanorTaylorBland-grantAnnouncement.pdf

    I hope to see you all again maybe Saturday at the writing marathon.

    Mondays aren't the best for me so Wednesday will need to stay the regular day for now. I'll try to get a Monday scheduled here and there tho.

    Is this going to be a regular meeting day and time? Not only is it perfect during the summer but would work in the fall when school is back in session.
