It seems to me that I do my best writing when I write it down on paper and have a nice hot coffee by my side. I am not sure why it happens this way but it does. Actually most of the cups of coffee I pour for myself never manages to make it into my body. I end up reheating them and many times I end up pouring them out. It is almost like I need it by my side as support. How odd is that? Anyway. Although I love my coffee and usually have a cup at my side I don't end up drinking most of them. How about you. Do you get so involved in what you are doing that you forget your coffee or tea?

I don't think it's all that odd. My mom poured out more coffee than she drank.

I have done that before, yes. Now I only make one cup of coffee a day and I usually drink most of it. =)

I have started to put my cup of coffee in an insulated cup that keeps it hot for up to 8 hours that way if I forget it, it is still hot when I remember it.

@HazySue I don't usually drink coffee, unless it's from Starbucks and I usually drink all of it.

Yes, mine has gone cold. I forgot it completely in the microwave last night, so it's a reheat from last night. I looked up mug warmers on Amazon and I'm going to invest in one to keep it warm to the last drop.

That's a great idea. I got one of those insulated cups that keep your drink hot or cold for up to 8 hours. Believe it or not it works.

@HazySue That's great. I forgot I was going to order one. They aren't expensive. Good to know they work.

I would probably write more if I had a cup of tea at my side. But I only have one a day. Only occasionally will I have another later in the day. I am a water drinker. But maybe if I drank more tea I'd write more.

I typically have a cup of tea in the afternoon while I am relaxing. Usually I read while I drink it

@HazySue My real issues are a) not having a designated, organized writing area, and b) internet distraction.

Now that I think about it, I do my best myLotting when I am sitting with a cup of coffee by my side! I don't know if it's the aroma, or the caffeine boost, but I seem to feel more refreshed, alert and engaged when I have coffee by my side.

Once I heard someone saying that cold coffee is good for the skin. Right or not, I love having my big cup of coffee next to me when I am working on my computer. Sometimes, it gets cold. Ocasionally, I do not have enough coffee and I have to stand up to prepaire another one.

My coffee is always by my side when I am writing. I am not fond of cold or luke-warm coffee so I end up heating it up. After once or twice of reheat I have to make a new cup of coffee.

@HazySue Does it happen very often that you heat it up twice and make a new one after?

That is so funny. I do the same thing. I forget to eat when I am writing. I don't get hungry.

For some reason I don't forget my tea, maybe because I am relaxing while I drink it and working while I drink my coffee.

That is definitely a good way to do some writing. I do like being able to do some writing with a nice cup of coffee.

Sometimes it happens to me. Like all I just needed was the aroma I get from the coffee. And sometimes if I like how it was made, like have a sweet taste I like to sip it.

I think that the aroma does have something to do with needing the coffee by your side.

I will write while I have ideas going through my head and stop to take a sip in between, that is why it gets cold.
