Whenever, in conversation with a new acquaintance, people find out that I write, I get the inevitable comments about how much coffee I must drink. It’s true. Somehow, the notion of someone who writes and a coffee guzzling fiend have become inextricably intertwined in people’s minds. So it’s no wonder that when I say I only drink a cup a day that I’m always met with a disbelieving eyebrow arch. But it’s true. I have noticed, however, that the size of my mug is continuously evolving . . . but that’ll be my little secret.
