Speaking of writing, I’ve had two Very Good Writing Days this past week. Usually Very Good Writing Days correspond directly to the amount of caffeine I’ve consumed immediately prior. I’m like a Starbucks Hemingway. But the weird thing is, I stopped drinking coffee five whole days ago (not forever, I just want the high to be sufficiently high when I need it, so I’m taking a little hiatus to decrease my tolerance).
So now I’m inclined to attribute my Very Good Writing Days (which, I should note, are not necessarily the same as Days of Very Good Writing) to the lack of caffeine. This new natural high thing. Or maybe it’s just that chapter 9 came to a nice climactic close, and I always like starting new chapters, which is what I did today. Huh.
