Need structure? Want to find camaraderie? Tired of writing in solitude? Join our virtual office space. At TPR someone is always in the cubicle next to you.

Here's how the practice room works:


At the given date and time (weekly schedule posted below), meet at post 1. It appears 30 minutes in advance of the hour (barring unusual circumstances), giving us a chance to set our goals in the comments. Declare your goal. Work toward furthering your project; word counting, revision, or whatever it needs - you decide.

Post 2: WE ARE UNPLUGGED! announces our hour. During that time, we write! The rules: no procrastinations. Please feel free to make tea or stand on your head as needed.

When the time is up, Post 3 appears with a chat box and we will get a chance to converse, or you can comment old-style to tell us what you got done! We are dying to know!

Read about a typical first time here. I make the schedule every Sunday. It will remain up in the side bar until I post the next week's schedule (feel free to make requests for particular times in the comments - I take them into serious consideration). All additions will be noted in in the side bar. Come back and check it often. (The schedule times are listed in Eastern Time Zone but the blog posts in Central - Tina's time zone. Our visitors are from all over the map.)

Please email me with questions, comments, or just to introduce yourself! tina dot laurel at gmail dot com

Post 3: Reconvene

Glad you're here. Let me know what you are writing, and then unplug from 2-3pm est. Come back at 3 for the chat roll to talk writing (and opossums, if you like!).

Post 3: Reconvene

Brandy, Jon, Anna, Marisa and KB stopped by. Blog posts were written, we worked forward on writing projects, an Opossum was stuck in a vent, we chatted about Write On Con, and decided to add another impromptu TPR at 2pm EST today!! Let's all have a productive day!

Post 2: Unplug Until 9am EST

Go write! See you on the other side (or at the chat room at post #3)!
