It’s 9 AM and I’m at Grounded Coffee Company. My laptop is out and I have my coffee and a biscotti. I do not, however, have my earphones. Writing without my music distracting me from everything else going on might be a whole new exercise for me.
Usually, when I write I have to cut everything out of my head. I need to separate myself from what is going on around me. That’s why I don’t like to write at home. When I’m at home, the day to day responsibilities always creep in: Do the dogs need to be let out/in? What do the kids want? Do I need to go grocery shopping? What are the looming projects that I should be spending my time doing?
The good news is that at least Grounded generally has good music on top of good coffee. I bought some Earl Grey tea to drink in the mornings because I’m trying to cut down on my caffeine intake and I tend to drink really strong coffee. So let me tell you how amazing this cup of Ethiopian Harrar is tasting.
I’m coming into the home stretch.
