1. We're such a small community, there's nothing to do but write.
2. Everyone knows everybody else's business, so there's plenty of material to write about... after all, the rest of the world doesn't know our business.
3. We're only three hours from Atlanta, from whence we can jump a plane to NYC any time we want.
4. We have high speed internet connections, which allow us to communicate with our writing buddies in the rest of the world.
5. I live here.
