NYC Energy

Doesn't this look like an old photo?
NOT, I just took it last week.
View from our hotel
After returning from my first trip to the big apple, NYC, I realize why creative people want to live there, it's the energy of the place. I was lucky enough to see the city the right way: a Broadway musical, the Rockettes, Time Square, the Statue of Liberty, Rockefeller Center, need I say more?
We were within 500 feet of Justin Beiber and Taylor Swift, not that we saw either of them, but cool to think we were that close to icons.

On our last night there we saw the Spiderman musical on Broadway, where Taylor Swift was in the audience by the way, and couldn't close my mouth through the whole thing it was that amazing. We returned to our hotel after the performance and I just couldn't sleep, so I sat up and worked on the latest chapter of my YA novel. Ideas flowed in abundance.

Spiderman on Broadway
It really is inspiring to be near so much creativity and talent. 


Like magic fairy dust, inspiration sprinkles all over your head and opens your mind.

I haven't been to NYC since I was 14 years old, but I'm hoping and praying to make there for the 2012 ThrillerFest Writer's Convention.

I love NYC. What did you think of Spiderman?

So cool to hear from inspired writers on my blog:) Spiderman was great. The talent was incredible. I was shocked at how funny the Green Goblin was. I thought my son would be afraid of him, but the actor was so funny he wasn't scary at all. The wire acts across the platforms, flying overhead was incredible. It was very retro, comic book.

That sounds like a great time! There's nothing better then a bit of creative inspiration.

I've never been tempted by NY (country girl myself) but now you've got me thinking...

Glad you had such a nice time. A writing teacher and friend of mine lives in Brooklyn and she says that Brooklyn is full of writers and illustrators. So that energy must beam out at you. Was this a vacation? Or was it a professional trip connected with one of your books?

Sounds like an awesome trip!! I loooved NYC when I visited there a few years back. Spent 5 days and still didn't get it all done. Perhaps a big field trip for us writing gals in the future, eh?
