Outside, in the fresh air, no kids, no music, just me and my feet on the road. Something about moving my body and the flow of endorphins gets my brain working in a different way than if I'm just sitting on my couch staring at the computer screen.

It's still fluid at this point, but it takes place in a small riverside town near the Gulf of Mexico.
