I'm in New York now, working on a collaborative writing project that will involve much walking and talking and plotting and scheming, and cups of coffee in tiny cafes, and the clatter of keyboards against an '80s pop soundtrack and the drum beat at the heart of Manhattan.
Here, as in Devon, I start my days early, with a cup of coffee underneath the trees or at the water's edge in Riverside Park. I miss my faithful canine companion -- but Tilly is where she should be now, wandering our beloved hills back home, while I stalk the Muse down city streets...and will soon return, new stories in hand.
