I don’t mean vodka (though AFTER you’re done writing, why not?). I mean the beverage of your choice that takes a little bit of time to make (like hot coffee or hot tea) and then some more time to drink. It’s a short break, say 5-10 minutes, that you can use to think.
Think about your story, then get back to writing. NO SCREENS.
The simple task of grinding, then brewing coffee, is something that’s ideal for your brain to give you the best idea. Showers are great too, but they take too long and are too cumbersome to do in the middle of the day (all the undressing and the folding of the clothes—takes forever).
What’s your beverage of choice? and how can you add it to your daily writing routine?
(Mine is one cup of coffee in the morning, and then countless cups of tea afterward. Then the blood of my enemies just before bed…)
