Coffee shops

I have always idealized coffee shops as a good place to write. Now that I am in the middle of writing a book, I decided to test that thesis.

I started off today at the Urban Stampede in downtown Grand Forks. Once I got my computer out and going and bought some decaf French Roast, I was off.

Except for one thing. The booth was vibrating due to some machine running in the building. And I had to kill two flies that were landing on me constantly. And some people up front were talking loudly about some party they had attended this past weekend.
