Shut up and write!

Okay, I’m sitting in Crossroads Cafe on Delancey Street. In about 30 minute, a weekly event called “Shut Up and Write” begins. The concept: a group of writers meet once a week to, well, write. That’s it. Yeah, there’s a break in the middle to check in, but the idea is to hunker down and just create.

This is my first meeting and I’m working on my novel edit…more later…

I will look into running something like this in London. Have been doing a lot of the ancillary activities and not enough of actual pen to paper, fingers to keys, writing lately.

Cool. I found them using a service called "Meetup.com". It's all about getting people with common interests together...I've also signed up for a horor movie group.

About Me

My photo
This is me and one of my two cats. His name is Cougar, and he’s an F1 Chausie. A chausie is a new breed of cat under development. Chausies are the result of a cross between a domestic cat (in Cougar’s case, a Bengal) and a jungle cat (Felis Chaus). Cougar’s mom is 8 pounds and his father is a 30-pound jungle cat. He’s about 16 pounds, super intelligent, spirited, and toilet trained. A writer without a cat (or two) is not to be trusted.
