8 Reasons I Drink Black Coffee

1.     I am a college student

Studying is hard. I have lots to do, late nights to stay awake for, and early mornings to jump to.

2.    I am a poor college student.

Cream gets expensive, ya'll.

3.    I am a college student in Ohio.

It's cold.

4.    I like tasting coffee.

Sometimes the rich flavor gets hidden with all the extra stuff you can add to coffee, and I just enjoy coffee on it's own.

5.    It's faster.

Ordering "just a cup of coffee" saves a lot of time in lines at coffee shops. I don't have to wait in the line of specialty drinks. Not that I visit coffee shops much. (see number 2)

6.    It's more filling.

I don't like lattes because I feel like I’m spending money on air, and I’m not big on that. (Also, see number 2 : )

7.    It simplifies my life.

Right now, the fewer extra things I have to think about, the better. In this case, I don't have to think about buying stuff to go in my coffee. (This one is kind of also related to number 2)

8.    The scent of coffee is not very strong to me.

Weird fact about Aly: I have an impaired sense of smell. That being said, strong coffee to someone probably isn't as strong to me.

So, that's my lighter blog post for today. The truth is, I just really love coffee. I hope you had a laugh. How do you take your coffee? Or tea? I thought about blogging about tea, but it would only be three words, "Earl Grey, hot."

  1. I'm a coffee addict and there is just something wonderful about black coffee. The smell is the best, I think.

Writing a Book With Two POVs and a Linear Timeline

I've never been one to write an "easy" story.

Even the project I'm working on now, one I began almost four years ago, was one of complex construction. Mainly, this book was made up of two side by side points of view. Two different characters told two different stories that only intertwined at crucial points throughout the plot. Before I even began, I knew that it would be a difficult story to write without causing mass confusion. 
I'd never written a story anything like this before (and even now, I'm editing to change one of the storylines completely), but I knew one thing:  {My time-line could never back-peddle.}

This would prove an annoying decision, but one that drastically improved my story. Every story is different, but I can outline the logistics of what I did to make this linear timeline possible. 
First, decide your primary main character. With two stories, not just two perspectives on the same story, your story will appear to have two main characters. You…
