Hello.
 
I reckon end of November I'll have time to write an article
 
Great. What are you going to write about?
 
just a "top questions this month" type thing
or maybe year...
 
3:18 PM
Sounds good.
@Tyler are you interested in writing something?
 
I wandered in off of Twitter and have no idea what’s going on here.
 
oh, well, this is the chat room for our blog. and this is the weekly meeting about the blog
 
I am not too familiar with the blog. I think I’ve probably only read one or two entries.
I will say that I have an interest in writing and an interest in this community.
I would want to read up on the blog some more, but I think I would like to write.
I came here mostly to get a better sense of how it comes to be.
 
Our blog is not as active as we would like it to be, hence the meetings here.
 
Cool! I’m interested in that, too.
Does this meeting have an official start time? Is this it?
 
3:26 PM
this is it!
 
I see the problem!
 
The room schedule says when the meeting is
but feel free to pop by anytime to leave ideas or whatnot
 
3:40 PM
So the blog covers both English issues and ELU issues?
 
Are you interested in writing in general, you mean, or thinking specifically about contributing to this community?
 
Both, yes.
 
You should know about the Writers chat over on Writers.SE then. Both Matt and I are active-ish there.
It's in this room on Tuesdays:

 The Overlook Hotel

On Tuesdays, we write and discuss. On other days, we discuss ...
We're getting ready for NaNoWriMo, so I'm not sure how active it will be in November.
Well, I am. Matt is organizing a hackathon.
 
it begins on Saturday!
 
3:45 PM
I thought it was next weekend!
 
NaNoWriMo, not the hackathon, that begins the weekend after
 
Oh.
Right. Two days.
I've got so much stuff to do...
 
is your plan ready?
 
3:56 PM
Sort of.
I wanted to do more outlining.
 
@KitFox I’ve bookmarked it, thanks.
 
Have you done much writing, @Tyler?
 
The largest single thing I’ve written so far is a thesis (40+ pages).
 
Master's?
 
Bachelor’s, actually. I did a uniquely writing-intensive program.
 
4:01 PM
Interesting.
 
I’ve got to run to a meeting.
 
Did you go to Middlebury?
OK. See you.
 
I’ve done a fair amount of professional writing as well, though.
 
4:36 PM
@KitFox OK! Meeting done.
I went to Shimer.
