This piece of art work reminds me so much of myself.
In fact, my favorite way to write includes a great cup of coffee, a few candles, and my notebooks/journals. Oftentimes I'll read from a writing book (This week I'm using Wingbeats), or I'll read a few poems from an author I admire to awaken my creative juices.
I used to have a habit of sitting in front of the couch, my legs beneath the coffee table. I would spread all my materials and candles across the table and write to my hearts content into the early morning hours.
I've always felt more awake, more creative during the nighttime hours. There's just something about the sky, the ethereal glow of a lonely moon, that brings forth my words with ease.
This piece of artwork sort of just fell together for me the other night. Hope you enjoy it!

"I pretty much drink a cup of coffee, write in my journal for a while, and then sit at a computer in my office and torture the keys. My one saving grace as a writer is that, if I'm having trouble with the novel I'm writing, I write something else, a poem or a short story. I try to avoid writer's block by always writing something." -Jess Walter
