I will be roaming New York City for most of the day on Monday. Strictly speaking, I am in town to attend the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America (SFWA) annual reception, which takes place Monday evening at a fancy penthouse in Manhattan. But it turns out I was able to do a few other things as well.
For instance, I was contacted by some folks at Forbes to do an interview on productivity for a series they are doing on the subject. They asked if I was going to be in New York City any time soon, and I said, well, actually… So I’m being interviewed there on Monday morning.
I’m having dinner with an editor1 on Monday evening. In between, I’ll be wandering about, looking for quiet places to sit and get some writing done. Or maybe just checking out the city. It’s been a while since I last wandered about Manhattan.
I am there in my capacity as a writer and technology blogger, and I think that’s a pretty cool reason to be in New York City for a day. Maybe not quite as good as attending a Yankees playoff game, but I’ll take it.
