    MoWiTy meets MeetUp 

    MoWiTy is just a few shy of the infinite monkeys we envisioned hammering away in pursuit of our various creative ends. To help realize our dreams of infinity, MoWiTy now has a Meetup Group on Meetup.com. For those who may be unfamiliar with it, Meetup.com is a site for people to organize and locate local groups of people for a variety of passions, including, now, our desire to create with reckless abandon. There is no cost to sign up or join our group, which you can find at http://www.meetup.com/MonkeysWithTypewriters/.

    With our move to Meetup, we will be changing our schedule to a less rigorous bi-weekly cycle. Other than that, it will be the same MoWiTy we all know and love. So, come, join us (http://www.meetup.com/MonkeysWithTypewriters/, in case you forgot), and help us welcome any likeminded monkeys from the Meetup community.

    MoWity’s schedule continues Wednesdays at Artisphere 

    Hi monkeys! We’re having our first post-NaNoWriMo MoWity meeting this Weds! Also, we’ll continue to meet Wednesdays at Artisphere for as long as it’s a good date and location for everybody. See you Wednesday! 🙂

    HEY: We’re UPSTAIRS at Artisphere instead of downstairs this time. Just go up the escalator into the “Town Hall” where the bar is, then go up the stairs to find us.

    Next MoWiTy meeting will be on Wednesday, November 30! 

    We’re meeting on Wednesday, November 30 this week! We can sprint to the home stretch of NaNoWriMo, and maybe have drinks to celebrate afterwards. Even if we’re not all NaNoWriMo winners (my word count isn’t so hot, buddies), we can toast to the memory of an awesome November.

    Hope to see you on Wednesday!

    Special Monday Night MoWiTy meeting on the 21st 

    So that no one has to miss out due to the Thanksgiving holiday, our Monkeys with Typewriters meeting will be on Monday, November 21 next week! We’ll meet from 7PM-10PM at the Artisphere as usual.

    Our Wednesday night meeting is going well and it’s nice and quiet here at the Artisphere. I even got a chance to ride the chicken! Here is proof:

    Edit to add: Stephanie also had a victorious ride on the mechanical poultry!

    Next MoWiTy meeting will be on Wednesday, November 16! 

    Our calendar is changing once again — Tuesday night is salsa night at the Artisphere and it’s a little loud for writing. We’re going to try Wednesday this week. As usual, we’re meeting from 7-10PM in the Town Hall of the Artisphere. We have been meeting on the level that’s up the escalator from the front desk, but if it’s loud for some reason, we might try moving to the level up the stairs from there.

    See you on Wednesday!

    Next MoWiTy meeting will be Tuesday, November 8 

    We discussed what day of the week we’ll be meeting, and Tuesday is good for everyone next week. We still might move the meetings to another day of the week (we’re testing the waters with Tuesday), but for now, our meetings will be on Tuesday, November 8. We hope to see you there!

    MoWiTy Moves to Tuesday for NaNoWriMo Kickoff 

    Since next Monday is Halloween and next Tuesday is the first day of NaNoWriMo, we’ve decided to move the meeting from Monday 10/31 to Tuesday 11/1.

    Also, it turns out that the restaurant at our current venue is closed on Mondays. If Tuesday works out next week, we may decide to reschedule MoWiTy to Tuesdays. How does everyone feel about this?

    I hope you guys are pumped for NaNoWriMo! Or, if you’re not doing NaNoWriMo, come along, watch the November madness ensue, and get a little writing done while you’re at it!

    MoWiTy Meeting Locations Have Changed Until Further Notice 

    The Soundry is currently closed and we don’t know when or if this awesome venue will reopen. In the meantime, us monkeys still need to type! We’ll currently be meeting in the Town Hall of the Artisphere in Rosslyn, VA. The venue has tables, chairs, couches, wifi, food, coffee and beer (Update, 10/24, 9PM: It turns out that the restaurant is closed on Monday nights, but we might reschedule the meetings for Tuesdays). You should come!

    Directions are available on the Artisphere’s website. The venue is metro-accessible and it looks like there’s free parking after 5PM.

    The Soundry is Closed 

    The breaking news is that our venue, The Soundry, is closed and may never reopen. (See the Soundry’s Facebook wall for the latest information we have.) What are a million monkeys with typewriters to do? Needless to say, the location of our next meeting is TBD.

    Please comment here to discuss. Thanks!

    UPDATE (10/21/2011, 1PM): Sadly, we still have no official word when or if The Soundry will reopen. If it is not open on Monday, the current plan is to have MoWiTy at 7PM as usual at the Town Hall at the Artisphere in Rosslyn, VA. We’ll post a confirmation of our location on Monday.

    UPDATE (10/24/2011, 2PM): We’re on for meeting at 7PM in the Town Hall in the Artisphere in Rosslyn. Directions are available on their website. We’ll try to be in the upper level, and will be the group with a bunch of tables pushed together, typing furiously (we hope). See you tonight!

      What the shit? Does anyone have the full newstory?

      • xiann 8:42 pm on October 20, 2011 Permalink | Log in to Reply

        There is not much news out there yet, and it’s not totally clear whether #OccupySoundry this Friday night at 7PM is a go either, although some people say they’re showing up anyway. I’m surprised and kinda worried, I’m really going to miss that place if this is the final ending 🙁

          I really really don’t want this place to die. This is unadulterated bullshit.

            I know! I will totally donate to their telethon! But I don’t know if they’re having one.

      Do you think Lacy or Sarah can help get the media involved?

      • xiann 9:04 pm on October 20, 2011 Permalink | Log in to Reply

        Hmm, maybe! I’m surprised there hasn’t been any media coverage of this myself! I searched Google News before I sent this message to the MoWiTy group and couldn’t find anything. However, since I haven’t really heard anything “official” from the Soundry, I don’t know what their next move will be. Most of what I have to go on is the fact that the Soundry IS closed (I went there last night) and there is a lot of sad buzz on Facebook with an air of finality. I hope to find out more about the official situation soon.

        So I emailed the Vienna Patch because they’ve reported on the Soundry a lot, and they said they’re already covering the story. Hopefully they’ll have some news out soon at least …

          Great! It will be nice to find out more about what’s going on… I’m really hoping this isn’t it for The Soundry! :[
