Need a Space to Write?

Most of us have no choice but to write wherever and whenever we can. And should we be lucky enough to find a little free time and a secluded spot, life still has a habit of interfering. Now I’ve seen it all, desktop computers with full 22 inch monitors in a busy Starbucks, to textbooks, bags and papers laid out across small spaces alienating both customers and café owners. In the end, finding a good spot to write takes exploration, consideration, good etiquette and thinking outside of the box.

You should be looking for:

  1. Location (Near transportation)
  2. Service (Laid back with inexpensive but good food)
  3. Atmosphere (Ample lighting and good seating)
  4. Wi-Fi & Electrical Outlets
  5. Extended hours of operation
  6. Amount of Traffic: (You don’t want to take up space and potential revenue for long periods of time, so find the best places and times to go to a particular café to avoid these kinds of issues)

FREE (Wi-Fi & Seating)

SPENDING $4-$6 For the Space, Outlet, and Wi-Fi

SPENDING $10-$25

$400 and Up
