Catching up… The Chinatown Connection

OMG, it’s been nearly two months since I posted…

I know some people can focus almost anywhere. I can focus almost nowhere. But I have begun to come here:

20130510-135151.jpg“Here” is Kleverdog Coworking. It’s a shared office space for freelancers, entrepeneurs, writers, and other folks who need an office but for whatever reason don’t have one.

I’m finding it to be just what the old Silver Dragon needed. There is no loud coffeehouse music, conversations are kept to a workplace-like minimum, and there is a pleasing atmosphere of Getting …Stuff… Done. Unlike at home, where (to be honest) the siren call of the video game console is hard to ignore, I can accomplish stuff here. Stuff like getting myself online as a freelancer, and making a new attempt at Chapter Three… Even stuff like, well, posting to my blog. And if I should, Heaven forbid, get bored, there is no place so fascinating for a city stroll than Chinatown. It is so different from Tarzana that it may as well be on the Moon.

I still am hoping to participate in the July Camp NanoWrimo, but to be honest, I want to get at least one revised draft of November’s novel into the hands of my beta readers. Maybe with this new HQ, I’ll get some progress made.
