People ask all the time, “where do you get your inspiration?” I give them the standard speech about being inspired by rainbows, puppy dogs, my husband, and life in general. My real answer should be…”Coffee.”
Others ask, “how do you write so fast?” I tell them about schedules and to-do lists and being organized. The real answer? Coffee.
“What’s your favorite thing about writing?”
“What’s the one thing you can’t do without?”
I’m really not a coffee addict <cough, cough> but it’s my one vice in life. I’m inspired by many things, and I enjoy them more with an espresso. I write fast and have lots of ideas because I’m hopped up on caffeine most of the day.
Okay, so my favorite thing about writing isn’t necessarily coffee. It’s entertaining my readers, but, swear to God, I would be far less entertaining if I didn’t have my daily cuppa joe.
And I couldn’t be a successful writer without my laptop, my wonderful assistant Amy, support from my family and friends. I couldn’t do without any of them. Or my dogs. Or my bookshelf of books that inspire and motivate me.
Luckily for me, my husband is roasting beans and selling coffee again. I get to taste test everything he makes. It’s a tough job, but someone has to do it. 🙂 He’s concentrating on organic, free-trade beans, and can do any kind of roast. Now I have my own personal source for the dark roast I love so much and I can have all of it that I want! Mwahahaha…
Yes, he’s totally enabling me, but isn’t that what best friends are for?
Which reminds me, it’s time for my daily pour-over.
Now that I’m well caffeinated, I better go write!
Readers, what’s your addiction? Books? TV? Ryan Gosling?
