Writers need coffee

Indecision – NaNoWriMo 2017- Dammit…

There’s a feeling of idiocy when you go to the store to buy a container of coffee – we need coffee, and if you disagree, you are not what we are. You always buy one brand. It’s been a faithful brand. It’s been a glorious brand. It’s been the only difference between a peaceful acknowledgment of the noble jackasses (And not so noble ones) in the world and the death penalty. But you want to start exploring. Your reliable friend is no longer good enough for you. You want to taste all the beans. Okay, maybe you’ll stick it in the basket just for shits and giggles, and a backup… These new kids ain’t so good when it comes to summoning the awakedness sometimes…

Somewhere on the Internet … Possibly Shopify? But it’s true so… Who cares….

You sit there and stare at them, thinking you’ve come to a damn good decision. You’ve read the backs of every bag in the aisle, bought a grinder, did your research while standing there, inhaling the fumes of the over-roasted beans for hours and you’re on the way to the front of the checkout line… Buuuuut you don’t want that one. Something about it isn’t right. So you turn around and run to the coffee aisle. There it is – the perfect brew. You grab your beautiful new beast. It was higher on your “must try” list. You put it in your armhole. Get back in the same line. The cashier stares at you like you have 2 heads and starts ringing you up. When the haunting thought hits you again. And you ask them to hold on. At this point, the poor cashier takes your items and puts them to the side, calling for his supervisor. The supervisor takes your items and the receipt and tells you to meet at customer service once you’re ready with your final purchase. You nod, thank them both, apologize to everyone and their kid fucking brother and run back to demon the aisle. You do this about five times until you look at the golden roast in your possession and go, “Fuck the new stuff. I like this one.” Welcome to NaNoWriMo 2017. So many goddamn ideas… And while we’re at it – Let’s go with ScreenCraft’s Short Story Contest. Even more goddamn ideas… Yes, we are busy writing a thousand things and still trying to do this “adulting” thing. Because life … and bills…. and pants…

Thank you SomeEcards and Imgur. Fuck you pants…

We have been writing. Like five different … novels? Novellas? Short novels? Same thing. It doesn’t matter. We’ve been writing. I say “we’ve” because of that crazy woman sitting in the corner with the damn knuckles and her piano buddy. Seriously… they scare the everloving shit out of me. If I don’t do what they say, bad things happen… And apparently the Doc is loving this and talking… So maybe my fear can coax him into coming forward so I can finish his damn book and that damn series. Maybe he’ll be my shrink when this is all done because all the Heavens, Hells and in-betweenies know I’ve lost my shit.

Oh well… time for Coffee (<– this is a proper noun as of right now.) Possibly Asgard’s own blonde bombshell. I mean Thor. Thor. that’s what I said. Ignore that other part about … Good job Disney — MARVEL. Marvel… Good job Marvel. You guys tell good stories. But for real though. Their character development is … incredible. And if you don’t believe me go watch all of the MCU flicks and tell me there’s no character arc. I might cut you if you say that. So tell me carefully. Or just don’t tell me. And we’ll pretend to be in agreement.
