Just like writing in the US, only Hotter!

*Kidding* No, it's fine as long as I have an internet connection. I actually came here a year ago (and met my wife for the first time), and that's when I finished the rough draft of my novel. Travel inspires me to write, plus I was living alone on a small island at the time with no distractions - a big plus for productivity.

Thanks again to all for your warm welcomes - I think I will enjoy this community very much!
