You can rent rooms or an entire cottage here. Cozy little cottages in upstate New York, designed as quiet, solitary writing retreats to nurture a writer's soul. My soul needs a nosh of nurturing, lately.
There's no TV, no evil World of Warcraft.
Not even an empty pizza box in sight. Just you, books and your writing. And those crazy monkey thoughts racing about in your head that eventually can make their way onto paper or your laptop. No distractions, like phones or laundry or dogs or husbands or yard work. Or "Grey's Anatomy." Or "House."
