I am a writer living in New York. @heydonnelly on Twitter. Get in touch at firstname[dot]lastname[at]gmail[dot]com.
After all, the distance any of us non-New York writers have from New York is frustrating, but also valuable. There’s an option to retreat from the noise–or, okay, the music–that I don’t think a writer in, say, Brooklyn has. This distance has benefited me for the last four years, as I write and write, without looking up, or around, me.
