You can drink all the free coffee you want, bring your own food and drink, use the fast wifi and plug your computer into one of the power outlets. You can even stay all day. But there’s one thing you can’t do at the Manuscript Writing Cafe in Tokyo.
Leave. Not until you meet your writing goal, that is.
Only people with a writing deadline are allowed in the cafe, where you pay by the hour. When you check in, you present your writing goal for the day and state whether you want your progress to be checked on periodically.
