Places I Write: Sunny Day

Sunny Day 1

Where do writers write?

Some writers sit at the computer in their pajamas, pounding away at the keys. Others take a notebook to the park and scribble down their thoughts while watching passersby. Still others enjoy writing at the beach with a piña colada at their side. Each writer has their own spot (or spots), meaning there are as many unique places to write as there are writers in the world.

With this in mind, I’d like to show you a few of the places where I write. Location, ambiance, background music, and the availability of caffeine (Must … have … coffee!) are all important considerations when I’m looking for the ideal place to put pen to paper.

SunnyDay3Today’s location is a local coffee shop called Sunny Day. It’s only a block away from my apartment here in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, so I come here often. The coffee is also very affordable: 40NTD for a black coffee, and 60NTD for a latte (about 1.30USD and 2.00USD, respectively). The latte art, as seen in the photo above, is also much a nice touch.

I wrote most of Spear Hunter at Sunny Day, and aside from my apartment it is still my most frequented writing haunt. That said, I write at a number of different locations, all of which you will see in the days and weeks to come. I’m looking forward to sharing them with you.
