I’m giving up coffee!
This is not as simple as it may seem. First, coffee is part of my spiritual practice; I ALWAYS drink (make that “drank” ) coffee when I write. You can bet seven children’s novels, an adult novel, countless short stories and op-ed essays on that. Interestingly, I don’t need it or want it at any other time of the day, but in the morning, when I’m writing, nothing is nicer than a steaming cup of java.
