Cafe writing in the blogosphere

Check out the PEN USA Mark blog, latest entry here. Good to see one of the world's most obscure topics of conversation elsewhere in the blogosphere! Not surprisingly, the post is about the routines and rituals of writing in cafes as much as the phenomenon itself. We all have such rituals: mine is to stick to coffee only - no food - but lately (it's still hot here in the southern hemisphere, despite Autumn having arrived) I have been restricting myself to iced coffees.
