A Book is a Device to Ignite the Imagination

Now Brewing: Wide Awake Coffee Co. Hazelnut Crème, with a scoop of organic pumpkin and a bit of cinnamon and nutmeg. It’s not a PSL, but it’s sure close and Whole30–approved. The real deal will just have to wait until October 1st. Welcome to fall! With the return of cooler temperatures and all other things […]

The 15 Minute Passion Project

Now Brewing: Isagenix Organic Coffee. I never full gave up coffee on Isagenix (shhh!) but I’m so happy that they’re finally selling coffee so I can stop feeling so guilty about my habit and keep in line with my plan. Throughout high school and most of college, I used to pride myself on being able […]

What I Owe to My 5-Year-Old Self at 23

Now Brewing: Starbucks’ Iced Coffee. ‘Bux is trying to take away my gold card because I haven’t earned my 30 stars this year, so I figured I’d cool off with one of my faves since it’s 85 degrees here in Washington D.C. and I’m from Wisconsin (where it’s still somewhat dreadfully cold) and I didn’t pack entirely appropriately. We’ve heard it […]

What’s The Deal With Queries?! And What You Need To Know About What To Do and Not Do When Writing One

Now Brewing: Starbucks Iced Pumpkin Spice Latte. It’s baaaaaack and better than ever. I finally bit the bullet this year and registered myself for a Starbucks gift card so I could reap the rewards (okay mainly the free in-store refills). I could not be happier that I chose to do this during my favorite Starbs […]

Cost-Effective Editing That Won’t Skimp Out On Quality

Now Brewing: Coffee People’s Tree Hugger Extra Bold. I chose this cup this morning because my campus was voted on The Princeton Review’s Green College Honor Roll. I also felt that conservation related well to the frugality of today’s post and although this cup might not save you a ton of the green stuff, at […]

Everybody’s Working For The Weekend–But You Don’t Have To!

Now Brewing: Cory Collections Sequoia Dark. This is what my office is currently brewing. It is similar to the dark roasts you can find at Starbucks or other large scale coffee houses but what I truly enjoy about it is that it doesn’t leave my mouth begging for gallon’s of water afterwards. I’m not a […]

The Art Of Crafting A Readable, Believable Character

Now Brewing: International Delight’s Iced Mocha. The great part about this is that you can buy it by the gallon at just about any store that sells liquid coffee creamer. This morning I used one of those water bottles that you can infuse with fresh fruit to make your own flavored water. I filled the fruit section […]

How Do You Know When You’re a Writer?

Now Brewing: Starbucks Caramel Ribbon Crunch Frappucino. It’s so bad for you but these are my favorite treat for summer afternoons when I’m crashing from my morning caffeine fix and need a pick-me-up. I love the how the caramel gets hardened by the ice chunks and adds a double layer of crunch along with the […]

The Adventure Along The Way

Now Brewing: Celestial Seasonings’ Sweet Raspberry Perfect Iced Tea: Spring is here it seems and I felt it was necessary to enjoy one of my favorite warmer weather K-Cups this afternoon. This variety is one of the Brew-Over-Ice options that you can make in the Keurig brewer. It definitely reminds me of summer and keeps […]

The “Write” Inspiration–Music

Now Brewing: Gloria Jean’s Mudslide: this coffee has been one of my favorites for awhile now. I first got a single K-Cup of it when I bought my Keurig brewer and was given a sample pack of cups. It’s got a rich chocolate flavor that really makes it taste more like a candy bar than […]
