I need some suggestions here about a conducive public place to write. My criteria is it's reachable by public transport (preferably LRT) and have power plug for my laptop.I'm not sure I can answer the question fulfilling Firdaus' criteria, but a very nice place to write is D'lish in Bangsar Village which opens at 10 a.m. It's quiet (until the lunchtime rush), light and airy, and has much better coffee than Starbucks. It's a bit of a walk up from the LRT, but the exercise does you good! Best of all, the management don't look at you oddly when you sit and scribble. (Helen Read and Abby Leong did my creative writing course and know exactly what you're up to!)
Usually I write at home but with the school holiday I found my little sisters keep breathing on my neck. Oh, having a door facing your back adds to annoyance as well. (Worse, they keep opening it from time to time). They are sweet, but I'm easily distracted ...
If writing in a cafe seems like a strange idea, have a read of novelist Susan Hill's blog, or check out this piece on Rowling. These people don't have little sisters to pester them but find the muse works really well in a public place with good coffee.
I've just remembered (I think Kam's words in the comments nudged me!) this lovely article by Alice Jones on cafe culture from The Independent a couple of years back, and think you cafe scribblers would enjoy it.
