COFFEE AND WRITING: A REPORT FROM A FUGITIVE.

Writing is aided by coffee. I am writing about coffee aiding writing while drinking coffee, thus aiding my writing.
   There is a serious point to this blog post: writing fills an empty space.
   And there is a frivolous point to writing. Typing with one hand while swigging from a mug of coffee is important, damn it. I'll caution you...
   Water, even clothed in coffee, does not mix well with electricity. Now I'll double-caution you.
   Writing requires breaks from writing. Coffee-breaks, damn it.

Finished my coffee.
   Breaks are vital. When writing, take a break every hour. I'm not saying drink coffee every hour. If you try to write every day, try to drink coffee during the breaks.
   The drudgery of writing...
   Oh, yes, there's drudgery in writing.
   The drudgery of writing is dangerous. Bad posture. Inactivity. The flurry at the keyboard, as imagined worlds unfurl beneath the frantic fingertips of the serial scribbler, does little for the writer's rattling frame.
   Stand. Stretch. Walk away. Coffee up. Recharge. Save your veins from the deepest thrombosis. Unpin your arse. Stay alive. Let java flow like lava through your system.
   Make haste to taste. Coffee your way through the day, and night. Write.

As writing advice goes, DRINK COFFEE may not be up there with FINISH WHAT YOU START or NEVER WRITE IN THE FIRST PERSON INDIFFERENT.
   But my biased coffee-centric view tells me to tell you that this advice is not far-off.
