Literary hot spots

I am not the kind of writer who takes their laptop to the coffee shop on the corner and camps out for the day, working on my novel in-between checking email and IMing with my son and my daughters and my husband while sipping a nice, hot mocha lattee. (Okay, I might be THAT kind of writer if I didn't have a dayjob which required me in my cubicle at work minus my laptop and my latest novel-in-progress but right now, no can do.)

But maybe YOU are that kind of writer and maybe you're taking a trip to someplace you've never been and you want to know where you can park it for a while and hook up to that free wireless connection so you can update your blog and IM your son about his homework look up directions to that critique group you wanted to check out.

WritersDigest.com is collecting a list of literary hot spots all over the US. See if your favorite place to plug-in is listed and if not, add it to the list.

Who knows, one of these days I could be in your neighborhood looking for a literary hot spot of my own.

I thought that was such a neat idea. I especially liked a couple of the ones I clicked on where the people said the store owners were very supportive of having the writers come in and "hang out."

yeah, in the very small window between school starting and me getting pregnant, i worked at the peet's coffee by his preschool while he was there--it was nice (but LOUD)

That's a good resource! (uh, not that I'm *that* kind of writer LOL)

Oh no, not you. You'd never be "that" kind of writer. Shoot, you just reminded me of an article I started years ago along those lines. Might make a good blog post. Must go dig through my old notes.

Yay! I can check "inspire somebody" off my to-do list today! :o)

Who am I?I was born on the Cancer/Leo cusp and share a birthday with Ernest Hemingway and Robin Williams. The similarities don't stop there as I can go from depressed to ecstatic without ever passing go. I feel scared most of the time though my friends call me brave and I find it easier to believe in my friends than to believe in my own abilities to make what I want out of my life.

Who am I? A wife, a mother, a daughter, and even, gulp, a grandmother.

Who am I? A writer who never gets tired of playing with words, even when the words are hard to find. A writer of books for children and articles for grown-ups and many things in-between.

Who am I? A motivational speaker, writing instructor, workshop leader and full-time follower of dreams.

Who am I? Read and find out.

"Successful writers are not the ones who write the best sentences. They are the ones who keep writing. They are the ones who discover what is most important and strangest and most pleasurable in themselves, and keep believing in the value of their work, despite the difficulties."
--Bonnie Friedman

"As writers, we must be willing to feel our sadness, our anger, our terror, so we can reach in and find our sweet vulnerability that is just sitting there waiting for us to come back home."
--Nancy Slonim Aronie

"Writers write about what obsesses them. You draw those cards. I lost my mother when I was 14. My daughter died at the age of 6. I lost my faith as a Catholic. When I'm writing, the darkness is always there. I go where the pain is."
--Anne Rice
