Where I work is important. I need a good space, minimal distraction, quiet, privacy and so on. In Japan, I made use of the local Macdonald’s. It wasn’t totally ideal, but I did manage to get a book—several books, actually—written there.
The Macdonald’s in NZ don’t have the same atmosphere, however. For various reasons they are not very suitable for me. And so I was happy to discover a nearby student study facility—Marsh House—that provides the best possible environment that a person could imagine.
