Today I spent the entire day at Panera. There are over-stuffed chairs by the fireplace, free WiFi, food, and did I mention—coffee?
I wrote five stories (first draft), wrote the rest of my Christmas cards, and managed to clean out my inbox, all while slurping cappuccino and eating a pumpkin muffie (that’s the top of the pumpkin muffin only). In my opinion that’s the best part, so why eat the extra calories.
There’s just enough distraction to keep me focused (I guess you figured me out already), but that’s okay, it took me a while too.
So if you want to de-stress and have your coffee too, then head to the Panera. I met folks just like me who write and have their coffee too.
