This means that, yes, I have all day to myself--all day to work on my middle grade that has been simmering on the back burner for several months now . . .
Before I came to Nashville, I did some asking around and discovered that the coolest coffee shop around was Fido--a coffee shop that used to be a pet store. There are doggie prints in the concrete and other cute leftovers from the building's pet store days. I love this place--great coffee, great local organic food, great atmosphere (a little loud, but fun) . . . but there is one tiny problem. There are no plugs. And, my laptop battery lasts about two-three hours. Tops.
So, I did some more sleuthing and figured out that there was another really cool coffee shop owned by the same people (so no guilt about switching loyalty or infidelity or anything) called Bongo Java. I set my GPS and found my new digs. Again, a problem. The only parking spaces that I could find were for two hour parking. Bug!!
Anyway, today I went back to Fido and turned off my airport, dimmed my screen light, and worked furiously on my middle grade. I didn't get to stay all day and work as long as I liked, but I'm getting a ton of stuff done. And, I took some good breaks and read some other middle grade books for help with voice.
Plus, I got to spend a little time at Anthropologie (after my battery died, of course).
