Inspirational Trip to New York City

New York City is known for many things, the Empire State Building,the New York Stock Exchange,Rockefeller Center, Trump Tower, and Grand Central Station, to name a few. But it's also the location for the majority of publishing houses in America. Yesterday, part of our family went to New Haven, CT and took the train into New York City to experience the holiday festivities. I find trips like these great for coming up with new story ideas for my writing. This isn't anything that I force though. There is so much to experience and see in the city that it seems there's never enough time to do everything. Sitting in Grand Central Station, I came up with two different story ideas while we were eating lunch. As we walked by the Lego Building and Rockefeller Center, another idea came to me. Things were very busy in that area last night. At times I felt like I was in a cattle drive, but it was fun. If you happen to live in the area, I think it's a worthwhile adventure to try. Now that I'm more familiar with the route, I expect that we will try this again. Happy Holidays!
