Fail Better Quiet Time: December 7, 2019
Time & Location
About The Event
Haven't found time to finish that script? Still need to memorize your lines? Want to catch up on your reading? Or maybe you just want to escape the noise of the city. WELL, COME ON DOWN TO (shh!)…*whispers* come on down to Fail Better Quiet Time.
This program provides a quiet space for you to combat your procrastination with a dose of accountability. In experimenting with "silent write/read-ins" for a number of years, we've observed that working alongside your fellow failees in silence can allow for motivation, a consistent routine and community. Help us create Quiet Time by simply showing up.
Please observe the following upon entering:
- Allow silence.
- Enjoy your music with headphones.
- Enter & exit as you please.
- Optional writing prompts/exercises available if you want a warm-up or to begin a new project.
We all work quietly for the first two hours.
Afterwards, there will be 45 minutes to an hour of social time to get to know each other.
We encourage sharing your unfinished Quiet Time work with our Fail Better Reading Series to hear it aloud in front of other supportive failees, optional feedback discussion available. Or maybe tell your mess-in-progress story at Fail Better Storytime, our kind-of-a-workshop storytelling show. It could also be the beginnings of a longer piece you'll submit to our Full-length Readings.
All are welcome!
