Love this! Just like what we’ve been looking at in #PhilippasTutorials 🤩🤩🤩

Thinking of compiling a directory of free to access writing rooms: a good table, no music, cups of tea nearby. Like hotels with libraries or lounges, a good vibe for editing or writing. Where would you recommend in Central Scotland? Open when actual libraries aren't.

Remember #WritingCommunity, this is tomorrow 👇 Your chance to ask the mentors your questions. Just use #thrillpit and we'll answer as many as we can!
