Write Club. Who’s in?

Post by JonGibbs » August 6th, 2012, 11:45 am

I have a picture to go with this, but i couldn't figure out how to upload it :)

1st RULE: You do not talk about Write Club (but typing about it's okay).

2nd RULE: You DO NOT talk about Write Club (or any strange feeling of déjà vu you may have just experienced).

3rd RULE: If someone says ‘stop’, goes limp, types out, their write is over, yours is not.

4th RULE: Only two guys to a write, the writer and his/her muse.

5th RULE: One story at a time.

6th RULE: No shirks, no ‘shoos’ – we’re here to write people, once you’re in, you’re in till the write’s over, so don't give in to distraction and no trying to chase your muse away when you think no one’s watching.

7th RULE: Writes will go on as long as they have to (or until your fingers get cramp from all that typing).

8th RULE: If this is your first night at Write Club, you HAVE to write.


A word from some of our past members:

“For me, Write Club was the beginning, now it's moved out of the basement, it's called Project Novel.” – Sue Doughnim

“After writing, everything else in my life got the volume turned down.” – Norm DePlume

“Write Club wasn't about winning or losing. It was about words.” – Will Durr

“I wrote little haiku poems. I emailed them to everyone.” – Ike N. Tryemwell

“It's cheaper than a movie, and there's free coffee.” – Jon's old gran



So there you have it.

Awesome! I'm in.

Ha ha!

I wish writing were a spectator sport. I'd love to see what some of my favorite authors are up to right now.

Ha! Fun concept.

I laughed, I cried, I wrote a sonnet. It was a good fight.

Truly. Except for the 'writing a sonnet' part. Honestly, I may never recover from that.

But we all bear our scars.
