I noticed that a lot of Writers love coffee, myself included. For some, it helps with their creativity and for others, it just helps them to stay alert. For me, Coffee is a state of mind when it comes to writing. It literally gives me a certain kind of high that I will attempt to explain. When I drink coffee, I feel relaxed and my overthinking mind becomes more focused and the words that come out of me seem to flow better and make more sense.
When I write novels, I don’t always drink coffee. But when I do decide to drink it I am able to write with more flare and with more imagination. I don’t know if it’s because it stimulates my brain in such a way that I can connect better with my innermost thoughts. Or if it’s just something that we writers have talked ourselves into thinking just because we love coffee so much that we’d probably die if we can’t have it when we want it.
Many writers are coffee addicts and can never get enough of the dark steaming brew that comes in so many delicious flavors and so many ways to make. Hot or cold it doesn’t seem to matter. The more coffee the better. I personally cannot go one day without coffee and enjoy it hot and cold. I drink it in the morning and at night. The night is when I enjoy writing the most. I have always been a night person and seem to be able to relax better after the sun goes down. I enjoy it hot with cream and sugar, as a Latte, or a frappe. Coffee is life and life is coffee. Sometimes all you must do is either look at it or smell it for it
