Gone Writing

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.

Write Club. Who’s in?

Gustavo, it's been over a year now. You have to let it go. Plenty of other people didn't get an invite to William & Kate's royal shindig, including me ;)

Apparently, my old gran met Her Maj. back in the sixties. I don't know exactly what happened (though I understand the Queen Mother ended up with a black eye) but the end result was a distinct lack of invites from the palace to Clan Gibbs ever since ;)

Most of my 'writing' coffee comes from the pots at McDonalds :P

I've heard that they no longer serve their coffee
at 180 degrees F
Can you tell me if this is true?

I haven't a clue, Stacy. I just know it's the best-tasting cup of coffee I've tasted over here :)

I can't hack that rule # 5 (I am poly in all things!) and I dunno about #4 either -- I like collaborating, even if I don't do it that often. ;)

that's okay, it's 'Write Club' not a legal requirement :)

I'm not a coffee drinker so someone can have my share of free coffee. I'm in though I need someone to stand over me with a baseball bat (or other threatening item) to help me abide by rule #6. Distractions are my downfall (literally if I get hit with a baseball bat or other threatening item).

=D

Oh, and I was never here--cause your blog is a distraction, and I don't want to get hit--so don't tell. ;-)

I may also break rule #4 from time to time. But it's okay, because that's when magic happens ;)

Lol, I wrote the rules so they closely mirrored the ones for the other club (the one with a similar name), so don't feel too concerned if you can't follow them all to the letter ;)

Write Club
No one at day job knows about Write Club.

When they tried to let me go with two days notice, I quipped, "I'll become an author full-time." And they laughed.

Six weeks later, I'm still managing a project for them. Fooled them all. Mwa ha ha.
