Cafe life seemed to grow with Starbucks. Now we seem hopelessly addicted to coffee! It is rare to see a person in Seattle without a coffee cup in their hand. I just drank two cups of coffee writing this blog.
I began my novel, “Providence of Souls” in our local cafe, “Pioneer Coffee.” I showed up, moved in with my computer, my journal, and a pen, and researched Italy until I had a story. I kept writing at home, at coffee shops, in my car during carpool, between housework chores, and in all of my free time.
Mike Ditka says, “It’s (coffee is) the life-blood that drives the dreams of champions.”
Sometimes we just need to show up and drink a lot of coffee to reach our goals. “Drink the coffee!”
