The coolest thing ever just happened to me an I have to tell you all about it.
So my little brother wanted to come to our local coffee shop, Fox In The Snow Cafe. I agreed because I love it here, I mean who doesn’t love a good cup of coffee? So my plan was to grab my headphones and my laptop and have him pick me up so after he left, I would be forced to stay here and write until I had Chance pick me up.
Yes, yes, yes, I know the word “force” isn’t the best to describe writing a book but I told you all that I have been lacking motivation.
So we bought some coffee and sandwiches and talked to a while. Then he left and I pulled out my laptop and began to write, entering my own little world, surrounded by people talking with family and friends. It is such a warm and wonderful environment and I absolutely smashed my writing
That isn’t the cool part though. The cool part is what happened about an hour after he left.
This charming little couple came in, they were in their eighties and were absolutely precious. They asked to sit at the table next to me which had not been cleared yet. I of course cleared it for them because the last people who sat there weren’t very courteous..I digress.
I mentioned in passing that I was writing a book, and they both were like. “You’re an author?” I said I was an aspiring author yes.
Well fun fact, the wife was an author of two books! How cool is that? Of all people to walk up and sit beside me, it was an author and her husband. We talked writing for about an hour, and she kept giving me wonderful pieces of advise. She told me to just keep writing, no matter what, just keep writing. She also told me to travel and they both told me about all of their world travels. It was so neat. She also recommended a book about writing that multiple people had already recommended which was just another sign that I should buy it. (I did.)
So Rosalie and Ed, I appreciate you both so much. you have both inspired me to continue writing and to buy that ticket to Iceland with chance this year.
Thank you to Joshua for getting me out of the house and to this coffee shop, I love you brotha.
Until next time
