Shut Up & Write
February 22, 2020 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
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 10:00 on Saturday 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 SESSION 1: quick intros.
10:15- timer starts: write for 1 hour.
11:15- (the end) chat / take off / keep writing. That Book Store closes at 6:00 P.M.
OPTIONAL SOCIALIZING happens at 11:20.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!
Bring earbuds/earplugs if you want to block the cafe’s overhead music or the occasional conversation by other patrons. You should charge your laptop prior to the event, but there is free wifi (password is on the wall).
How do I attend?
Most in-store events are free and open to the public. To join the signing line, please purchase a copy of the author’s new book from That Book Store. Luncheons and other ticketed events in-store require pre-registration and ticket purchase.
Off-site events require a ticket, which usually includes the new book. The cost is dependent on the cost of the book.
Can I get my book from home signed?
A purchase from That Book Store is required to join the signing line; additional books from home of older titles can be signed at the discretion of the author.
Can I get a photo with the author?
Those guidelines are determined by the author and the publisher, so check each event for specifics.
Where should I park?
Our parking lot is located behind our store. Overflow parking for on-site events is available across the street at 449 Silas Deane Hwy. Please do not park at Beaver Brook Animal Hospital.
