In the tradition of Harlan Ellison and Louis L’Amour, children’s author Simon Cheshire is writing the eighth Saxby Smart comedy crime mystery in the window of a Borders bookshop in the UK.
Ellison also wrote at a table in the middle of a Worldcon, and L’Amour once set up his typewriter in the middle of Hollywood and Vine. I suspect that the easy part is finding wildly inconvenient public places to write. Getting reporters to take notice is the real trick.
