I never knew motivation like this!

Soho cafe fro coffee and writing

My first day in New York. What a great day!

After having my haircut in Washington Heights, I walked from Soho (stopping at a cafe to write, and replenish my caffeine levels – they were dropping dangerously low at that time), through Little Italy, to Chinatown. I crossed over the Brooklyn Bridge, then caught a train to Washington Square Park.

At the end of this day – this nine hours of walking, taking pictures, and being with myself while traversing this city of millions – I returned to my accommodation and the second chapter of my current manuscript poured out of me.

As if that wasn’t enough reason to celebrate, I also think what I’ve written so far, in the first draft, is good. I know? Sacrilege for a writer to admit they admire their own work. But there you have it.

I’m curious to experience the adventures tomorrow will bring!

I am a writer from Melbourne, Australia. I am currently working on two writing projects. The first is a contemporary gay novel about a man experiencing growth and change after the end of a relationship. The second is a collection of novellas following a private detective in Sacramento as she solves missing person cases with the help of her four spirit protectors. I also write poetry, short stories, plays and film scripts.
