When I’m working at the coffee shop I quite often look at the people who curl up in one of the chairs with a book or sequester themselves at a corner table with their computer and think it looks delightful.
Writing at a coffee shop is nearly a cliche with how popular it is, and it’s really no wonder. I’ve had many great writing ideas pop into my mind at the coffee shop, and that’s when I’m back scurrying around in the kitchen. It’s simply because coffee shops are nearly magical with their whimsical appeal.
Then today it happened. The perfect opportunity for me to spend a few hours at my coffee shop working on writing. I had an appointment in town and after the appointment, I had two choices: Either head back home for an hour and a half – where I would be working on my computer. Or take my computer with me and go to the coffee shop early. Of course I chose the latter.
It’s a quiet morning at the coffee shop, so I chose my favorite table that’s tucked away in the corner of what used to be a porch, then stashed my work bag in the back, bought a small Americano, and here I am.
It’s cozy, y’all.
I’m sitting here being pretty thrilled that I have an hour and a half to art to my heart’s content. It’s really no wonder this is a favorite hang out for a multitude of people. My music is on, my work in progress is up on Scrivener, my strong coffee is seeping into my bloodstream (hopefully not literally), and I’m ready to begin writing.

Random Fact: When a shot of espresso is made it has to be mixed with something very quickly or else it gets extremely strong and bitter. I happen to like the strong and bitter taste and therefore regularly drink our old shots.
