spot for our next vacation. She chose Los Angeles at first, but I said no
because I don’t like L.A. and I’ve heard their transportation system sucks.
So then she chose NYC. I don’t think I would have chose to go there on
my own. Despite it being a writers mecca.
So here is my plan:
-Write everyday: Have the four
new scenes written and mostly polished.
-Eat mindfully: eat a salad
every day and stick to intermittent fasting with healthy snacks.
-Exercise in the morning. Daily Schedule:Wake at 5:45 AM. Start writing at 6AM. There
should be some pretty cool coffee shops near the hotel??? Write til 7:45 AM. Exercise: 8 and 8:45
Write from 9 to 10:30. 11 AM–Free Time!
Woke, wrote, write, exercised, and then wrote a little more.

Maya and I felt confident enough to take the subway by ourselves to Uptown
Manhattan–and we pulled it off without getting lost. Again. Nice. With
lots of nice people and trees. There were lots of buildings in NYC but there
was a nice mix trees and buildings uptown.

The stuff of legends, man.

wasted an hour on the subway to get back where we started.
to do the opposite of whatever my Google maps told me to do when we were
walking. I was feeling really stupid until I figured that out.
Park, the Natural Museum and Grand Central Station but that never happened. I
was really sad about that. But one of the reasons I didn’t plan this trip was
because I wanted to see what the city had to offer and come back next year with
a detailed plan.
