I LOVE to walk and usually do 40 minutes hike in a forest nearby. If I can walk first thing in the morning, then my writing flows forth effortlessly. If I don’t walk, I can’t seem to get in the rhythm of writing. I love to walk in San Francisco, in New York City (for hours on end) and in my own town.

How about you?
