DISCUSSION / SOCIALIZING ~ online activity
Sep 22 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Join us for a lively discussion about writing and the writing life.

We talk about what it feels like to be a writer on a good day, what it feels like on a bad day, and what it feels like to hang out with people who get it.

We explore writer’s block, the illusive muse, and the challenges of carving time out of a busy day of living to sit still and write. We celebrate when the dam breaks and the words flow faster than the fingers, and we acknowledge the small victories, like a new writing habit that works, a successful critique group that motivates, or a partner at home who finally understands there are no “quick” or harmless interruptions.

We also get technical. We like to explore character arc, point-of-view, how to show instead of tell, whether adverbs really are the bane of good writing, and who will survive the zombie apocalypse longer, plotters or pantsers.
Most of all, we enjoy each others company. Expect laughter, some rowdiness, and people who “get you” and are happy to see you.
Members only. Fortunately, membership is fun to have, easy to get, and the Facebook membership is free. Join us at To Live and Write in Alameda for the Discussion Group Zoom meeting ID.

Write Alongs. They’re like meet-ups, only better, because you get to get some writing done, stay connected, and practice social distancing!

Write Alongs are for those among us who like to write in the company of other people but are serious about getting some work done. The rules are: Get your beverage, join the Zoom meeting, open to your page, and save the talking for later.

We encourage you to socialize before and after we write, because that’s how the verbal exchange of moral support happens, but we insist you keep quiet during. Your respectful silence at the Write Alongs is what we call tacit support.

Zoom meeting IDs are shared with members of the To Live and Write in Alameda Facebook group only; membership in the Facebook group is free.
