There are Corner Cafes all over our country. Right now, I'll bet many of them have someone sitting at a back table typing away on a laptop or a notebook. There's a bit of a mystique to someone writing a book while sipping coffee in The Corner Cafe. (Our book of short stories with that title, written by BBT Authors, is available free today on Amazon.)
Writing some or all of a book while sitting in a public space got me to thinking about my own writing career. My first book, Hearts Across Forever, was written while I sat in a lot of different places, maybe even in a corner cafe or two. Because it was my first attempt at long fiction, the story played out in numerous versions and rewrites. The first of my attempts was written in cursive on big yellow pads. I suspect a few of those hand-written pages still lie hidden somewhere in my writing studio today.

I don't have a Corner Cafe near me today. If I did, I might sometimes carry my little mini computer with me and tarry there a while for inspiration.
Please don't forget The Corner Cafe is free today on Amazon. "A Face in the Window" is the name of my story. If you don't have a Kindle, just download the app for the Kindle Cloud Reader. That's what I did.
Maybe you can help us reach #1!
