My best time to write is right after coffee and breakfast – four eggs – because, full disclosure, I’m really a komodo dragon – and that’s because then I’m energized but not so awake that the critical voice clicks on, the voice that sometimes says, ‘Don’t write that,’ or, ‘Man, that sentence is terrible – you should give up and go pet the cats.’ – Jeff Vandermeer

I only drink coffee grown in high altitude rain forests – Rob Dyrdek
