One of the tougher challenges for a writer is where to begin. Often where to begin is where to write. Some writers prefer silent solitude while others like noise and energy in their work environment. Finding just the perfect writing spot is essential as nothing is more maddening than gathering your writing tools together and getting to that cafe to find the place is just wrong for you.
JCW to the rescue!
Over the next several months, JCW will be visiting local writing spots in Jersey City and sizing them up with a writer’s critical eye. You will have all the information you need to make a good choice in where to create your masterpiece and support local businesses.
One of the newer businesses in the Heights, 942 Summit combines three businesses in one. Do You Tea provides more than just a tea shop — it hand blends loose leaf teas. WHOS Gluten-Free offers up tasty snacks, and Bloomsbury Sq. Bath and Body is a natural beauty product artisan. With a updated rustic design and welcoming hosts, 942 Summit is the perfect place for writers seeking a classic cafe like environment. The background music is eclectic and at a comfortable volume and the aroma is an inspiring mixture of tea, soap and soup.
