If you are someone who finds it hard to make time for your own writing, the Shut Up & Write Online Chapter can be a great way to set aside a small amount of time each week and do some of that writing that you have always wondered about or never quite got around to.
It provides the companionship and accountability of writing buddies and RSVP’ing, without the intimidating aspects of having to go to a coffee shop and be seen publicly doing “writing”. This calendar shows the events that I host, and there are 40 odd other people (at the time of writing) around the globe who also host virtual rooms that you can join.
The people that join my events often run into familiar faces from other events they attend. Others, like me, only attend specific sessions that fit in with their schedules. The host is there to help you out if you have questions about the “Shut Up & Write” process, but there really is no way to “do it wrong” if you are getting what you want out of participating!

This is how you do it:Neil Gaiman
you sit down at the keyboard and you put one word after another until it is done. It is that easy, and that hard.
If people cannot write well, they cannot think well; and if they cannot think well, others will do their thinking for them.George Orwell
