New Canton

My living room / a rural area where you can see your neighbors from afar but close enough to interact if you choose

Equal distance from Charlottesville, Richmond, and Lynchburg -- your choice of coffee spots, parks, and people to watch and write about--so the hot spots would be anywhere in those three towns that you feel like going to.

Too hot now but when weather is nice - a walk in huntley meadows - (a wetland park in Alexandria) then a bench and notebook - one time I was watching feathers floating on the pond and realized I had left the notebook in the car and was almost running back saying over and over to myself when all that is left is feathers floating on the tide. Now I make sure I always have pen and paper.

The Parkway in Williamsburg: nothing beats driving along the parkway while coming up with story element ideas.
Be proud of your mistakes when they form from blinding passion. But now edit them.

The boardwalk at Dodd Park is awesome. Meander along the boardwalk just above the 'marsh' that adjoins the James. No power, but plenty of meditative space, and room for inspiration.

Front Royal
Eastham Park Dog Park on the Shenandoah River
I like to grab a bench with my journal and coffee while the pooch plays.
