85K Coffee Breaks are held throughout the day, on most days, on both Twitter and Facebook. But there’s no need to stay constantly tuned in. 85K Coffee Breaks are intended to operate in the background of your writing day; a virtual coffeehouse for quick conversation. Like working in an office—take a break to say hello, but then get back to work—you have a novel to write!

Day 1 Coffee Break: If you wish, upload social media banners.

Day 2 Coffee Break: On a piece of paper or index, set a goal for this week. Write one sentence that clearly articulates how you are going to stick to your goal, and then write the date you intend to accomplish this goal. If you wish, share a snapshot of your index card with the 85K Tribe on the 85K Facebook Page, the 85K Private Facebook Group, and on Twitter using @85K90 and the #85K90 hashtag. For more information, this Day 2 85K Coffee Break links to the Day 2 discussion in the “Blog” section of the website.

85K Coffee Break Field Trip: Friday, January 6, 2017
This Friday morning (January 6, 2017), building on our Day 2 “Daily Open Chat” Forum question found by clicking Forum > Write > Daily Open Chat, “Are you a morning person? Or a night person?”, we’re taking a field trip to the #5amwritersclub on Twitter. (Well, okay. Perhaps the night people won’t make it. But the morning people should totally go!)

Here’s what you need to know:
