I'm in the very nice position of being able to write at any time on Friday, November 1. I'm going to start by writing at home, since that's where I write best.
I'd be happy to host an afternoon write-in at a coffee shop, orearly evening, but would have to leave before6. I could also do late morning. I can only do 2-3 hours of sitting in one place. (But the write-in could go on ifother people wanted to stay later.)
If there's a lot of interest, I'll make a doodle poll, but for now, just respond when you can make it, and your preference of where. I'm thinking Caribou, maybe Naperville, maybe Glen Ellyn, but it could be elsewhere if they have comfortable chairs and wifi.

Sorry, I set something up for Naperville on the 1st. (I could do the 15th in Wheaton if you're available that Friday.)
You can set up your own write-in, by the way.You're less than a mile from:Caribou Coffee, West Front Street, Wheaton, IL
We have other writers from the Wheaton area, if you want to set up a time that you'll be there, it's possible other people will join you.(Or elsewhere--there is also a Starbucks orLa Spiaza in downtown Wheaton. I prefer the chairs and coffee at Caribou over Starbucks.)
There was talk tonight at the Caribou in Glen Ellyn about having a sort of impromptu write-in Friday evening. I'll likely be there from around 6:00 to maybe 8 or 9, depending on when I get off work that day.

I was hoping you guys would do that. Sounds like it could be fun.
It largely depends on if we're working that day/when we get off work. Checking my schedule this morning it looks like Quittin' Time is actually 5:00, so I should be chilling in Caribou by 5:30! I'll try and grab either one of the large tables, or a double table. I will not have a power strip on me but I hope to buy an extra one sometime this month to make the most of our outlets (and I could use one at home anyhow).
As a note, the Caribou in Glen Ellyn (off Roosevelt Road) has been EXCEPTIONALLY busy lately. Every Sunday we've gone, there's been barely any tables left and it's remained busy up until around 8-9:30 or so. If someone gets to Caribou on a write-in day, please grab a large table if anyone else is expected to come--preferably by an outlet! We all will appreciate it. :)
D'oh, I start work at 1:15 on Friday, like I always do, I don't know why I thought it would be different this week. (Wishful thinking, I guess.) I think I might spend the morning at Wicked Good in Naperville, though, and maybe I'll head up to Glen Ellyn after work, which would put me there around 7:30ish.
I work until 4:30 on the 1st, which means that I wouldn't be able to be at the Glen Ellyn Bou until about 5:30 or 6, depending on traffic, but I will be there, barring any unforeseen sudden illness or other such act of God. XD I will have stickers! I haven't decided if I'm doing plot bunnies again this year or not. I've been really tired, and haven't had much energy for anything but eating, sleeping, and working. XD So we'll see.
If you come to the Glen Ellyn Caribou, I'm the first one here (I think!) and I'm currently chilling at one of the back tables with access to a whole bunch of power outlets at the moment. It's pretty chilly in here and it looks like they're having live music at 7:00. Let's do this thang!
