No, it really does. Coffee (especially Starbucks coffee) somehow manages to jump start my entire system. Even if my hands are shaking, when I'm on a coffee induced caffeine high, I can write for hours at a time. Really. It's pretty awesome. Unfortunately, my doctor has forbade me from drinking coffee on a regular basis, and I've been forced to rely on caffeine laced tea. It's not nearly so potent, but he says that if I want my heart to not explode, it would be in my best interest to stop the coffee every morning routine. -sigh- How very unfortunate, right?
Last night I wrote nearly 1k, which I'm very proud of. And I've crossed from chapter 22, to chapter 23 which is the final chapter in this part of Behzad' s life! I'm so excited, and a little intimidated. Because, as soon as I wrap this chapter up (hopefully before the end of the month) there are going to be a sequence of torture scenes, one right after the other. I'm a little apprehensive. I've always been a little scared of writing really emotional material and I just want to be able to convey the horror and emotional trauma that needs to come through. Here's to hoping I can do it.
I was thinking of adding The Raven Desk @ Wordpress to thewrite.com to get some more traffic, but I don't want to until I'm sure I'm going to be able to keep up with it. Also, I need some more ideas I need for things to write articles on. -goes to brainstorm-
Coffee fixes everything
