My coffee flavour is Grasshopper Pie. I have no idea what Grasshopper pies is. So, as I listen to the soft gurgle and trickle of my coffee brewing I do a fast Google search. Google shows a pastel coloured no-bake mousse pie with a chocolate crumb crust.
That first sip reveals none of the flavour that I was expecting. There are no notes of chocolate, no nutty tones and it isn’t creamy. It is a smooth sip but I taste a light minty flavour that confuses me. It isn’t an overly bitter coffee and there is no lingering after taste. Sadly, it is a dull cup of coffee today.
If we were having coffee, I would share the link to my coffee post last weekend in case you want to check it out… Pie Flavoured Coffee Series: Coffee 1. I would also explain that this year at Brewing Coffee, Twisting Words & Breaking Pencils it a year of coffees.
If we were having coffee, I would ask how 2022 is going for you so far? The beginning of my year has been restful which is a great start in my opinion. I took the first week off work but I am back at it in a couple of days.
If we were having coffee, I would ask if you are a new year’s resolution person? I am not, at least not in the typical fashion. For me, I don’t make a resolution but I do assign the year a word. I started this in 2018 and it is an activity that stuck for me. Previous years have been assigned words like transformation, hope, goals and health & happiness. This year’s word is success for successes however big or small. So, I wish you a successful 2022.
If we were having coffee, I would share with you that I have let my novel sit for the month of December so I can look at it with fresh eyes sometime in the near future. I am waiting for my last round of edit reads to finish up and get back to me. Once that I happens I will go through it and then it is off to Beta readers for advanced reviews. So, exciting. In addition, I have made a start at a sequel. Just going slow with it for now but I have set a writing plan up for the year so I need to kick my writing into gear. Hmm, what else about writing can I share? I submitted my master’s application and will hear back on that in March. In the meantime, I am taking some webinars and joined an online writing conference for later in the year.
If we were having coffee, I would share with you that since joining Goodreads I have really been enjoying being an active part of that community. I have been completing reviews on the books that I am reading and sharing those reviews on Goodreads. I was surprised to find that I really enjoy writing reviews. I look forward to completing a few more reviews this year. If you are active on Goodreads you can find me at https://www.goodreads.com/shari-marshall.
Well, if we were having coffee, it would be time for me to pass you the coffee pot and sit back and listen to your coffee news.
