The name of this coffee made me wonder if the hot liquid in my cup would have a pink hue. It doesn’t, of course, but it is a lovely deep brown. The scent is bitter with notes of a woodsy vanilla. On second sniff I realize the woodsy notes are in fact seasonal spices with nutmeg being the strongest scent. That first sip is filled with those same seasonal spices giving it a warmth that doesn’t come from the heat.
If we were having coffee, I would begin with an apology to you for having limited time to visit your blogs the last few months. Now I have entered crunch time to finish my novel so I am trying to pop in but I may not have time to leave a reply. Please be patient I will be back to regular visiting soon I hope.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I feel a bit disorganized about what next year will bring for my blogging. Usually by now I have at least a rough idea of what my next year of writing will be like but as it stands right now I don’t. I know that there will be editing of my novel but I don’t really think that will be interesting enough to make a year’s worth of posts about so I guess further thought is required. I am also wondering if I will participate in the A to Z challenge in 2022. Lots of time for that decision though. On further thought, perhaps I should make it a year of coffees! Hmm, I kind of like how that sounds.
If we were having coffee, I would share with you that I have decided to apply to do my Master in creative writing. I am in the process of trying to find time to complete my application package. From the sounds of it, it is intense competition to gain a spot in the program. Only 25% of applicants receive letters of acceptance! I am going to give it a shot though and see what happens. I plan to keep writing either way.
If we were having coffee, I would pass you the coffee pot and sit back and listen to what you have to share.
