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 10am on Monday 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.
10:00 - quick intros.
10:10 - timer starts: write for 1 hour.
11:10 - (the end) chat / take off / keep writing.
OPTIONAL SOCIALIZING happens at 11:10. 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.
What Should I Bring?
Whatever you need to be able to write!
There will be only limited access to power outlets for laptops - please come with your laptops precharged.
Bring earbuds/earplugs if you want to block the cafe’s overhead music or the occasional conversation by other patrons.
Other Important Details:
- Ballard Coffee Works does have WiFi.
- We'll sit together at the big table in the separate meeting room.
- Please consider purchasing something at Ballard Coffee Works. They have excellent coffee, pastries and sandwiches.
Happy writing and I look forward to seeing you!
