Shut up and write!
Am I being rude? Or am I teasing about a writing lifesaver I found recently?
Let’s go with a writing lifesaver 🙂
Since last week, I’ve been utilizing different Shut Up & Write meetups to write over 1,900 words in an hour. Shut Up & Write is exactly what it sounds like. Writers meet online (or at a certain place in town) and introduce themselves plus the project they’ll be working on, then they literally just write for the remainder of the time. I’ve found success on Tuesday, Friday, and Sundays with the online version. Meetup lists several different chapters and the beauty–you don’t have to belong to that city in order to join since everything is online. Guess I can thank covid for that…
I’ve written so much that I’m almost finished my five scripts for my graphic novel series! I’ve also taken advantage of an art group that I’m in. Every Saturday, G.N.A.W. hosts accountability hours where we can draw or write for an hour and a half. It’s literally the same concept as Shut Up & Write.
I’ve learned that I’m a more disciplined and productive writer when I am with other people working on their own projects. How are you? Are you better off alone? Or do you like connecting with others? If you think you’d like joining a writing community, definitely check out Shut Up & Write online, and if you’re on Meetup, my profile is Yawatta Hosby. Join the groups I’m in and say hello!
