Better than Batteries

Starbucks and Ben E. King. These two things can keep me going like nobodies business. If I am run down, if I am out of ideas, if I am fed up with writing in general and swear I will never touch a keyboard again I go to Starbucks for a Quad Espresso with Two cups of ice and pop Ben into the CD player. Viola! I am a happy girl.

If I am in a really terrible funk I play around on the internet for hours. I like to scan the gay boy's blogs because I LOVE them. I check out LOL Catz. I go to YouTube and browse stupid videos for HOURS. Basically anything that makes me laugh is great for recharging.

I am also fortunate enough to live close to some fantastic authors. I know I can call them at almost any time and they will meet me for food and fun at a moments notice. This is great. Whether Cindy and I are bouncing ideas off of each other for books, or Brynn and I are just talking about our kids...this is one of the best forms of recharging I could ever ask for.

I don't wind down often but when I do I am severely lucky that I have friends to pull me up and help me get going again.

  1. If the last couple of weeks are any indication, I need to go shopping more often! Interacting with people/people watching seems to have jump-started me again:)

  2. No she can't Anny! back! You are, however, more than welcome to move to Michigan!

    Gotta agree with you there. Blowing off steam with other writers is the best!

  3. Awww....you really like me. :D

    Unfortunately Anny I can't move. But Cindy is TOTALLY right, you should absolutely move here...or at least come visit. We're pretty fun people here in the mitten.
