It’s the middle of winter here but that’s no problem for me as a writer! I like the feeling of being cosy inside when it’s raining and windy on the outside. I get more writing done in winter, because there’s not the pull of nature: swimming, walks in the sun by the sea and all that. It’s always been a problem for me, the pull of the outside versus the obsession to work on my writing.
Our local coffee shop/wine bar/restaurant at Coogee Pavilion, caters for just about all demographics: trendies (evenings), mothers and babies (mornings), couples, oldies and kids on weekends and during the holidays.
It’s the coldest it’s been this winter, with a low of about fourteen degrees in the daytime and the rain and wind factor making it feel worse.
Someone asked me what there is to do in Sydney in winter. See my post on this at http://www.anneskyvington.com/
Here’s a summary of the article:
Whale watching, Vivid Lights Festival, Ice Skating at Bondi Beach, A Day Trip to the Blue Mountains, the Royal National Park, Ocean Walks
Do you have a favourite coffee shop near you? I have several that I like to frequent with friends. This one is the closest to my place. Tell me about your writing habits.
