Coffee or Tea?

Which is your go-to writer fuel, coffee or tea? Or do you guzzle Pepsi or an energy drink?

It’s coffee for me, the stronger the better. And if I’m writing late into the night, you can bet there will be some wine on my desk.

So, what’s your drink of choice when you sit down to write?

The First Day of Spring

Today is officially the first day of spring. I woke up hoping for leafy green trees full of chirping bluebirds, flowers in bloom, and plenty of sunshine.

Somebody should have told the weatherman what day it was, because that is NOT  how it looks outside. The sky is gray, it’s cold as hell, and it actually snowed! I just hope everything that had started to turn green doesn’t die of frost bite.

Even so, I love spring and am glad it’s finally here. Can’t wait to open up the windows and let the fresh air in … well, after the damn snow stops falling, anyway.  Time to start spring cleaning, break out the patio furniture, and trade my snow boots in for sandals.

How’s the weather where you are? What’s your favorite part of spring?
