11/16 Finish What You Started, Round II with Judy Reeves

Date: Saturday November 16 Time: 10am to 5pm Number of sessions: 1 Members: 45 Nonmembers: 50 Location: The NEW Ink Spot, NTC at Liberty Station, 2730 Historic Decatur Rd., Barracks 16, Suite 202, San Diego, CA 92106

We had such a good time at our last all-day “Finish What You Started,” and got so much good work done, we decided to do it again!

Writers of all stripes are invited to bring your unfinished, your half-done, your false starts, your messy drafts and spend the day writing toward finishing something. Or more than one thing. And all you Nanowrimo writers: bring your computers and your word counts and spend the day with us. We’ll write, we’ll have an opportunity to talk to other writers about our projects, set our goals for the day. We’ll take time for a mini-feedback session so you can get comments on something you’re uncertain about and generally, get support for your work in the warm and friendly environment of The Ink Spot.
Bring your notebooks or your laptops and we’ll work alone/together to take those messy beginnings to the next stage, which might even be something that’s ready for submission.
