Coffee. I prefer instant, but we also have filter coffee. What I expect you don't want is what they call botz - mud. Black coffee, sugar, water, no milk. It's what the people who come to do work in our house generally ask for. They leave the mud - the dregs - at the bottom of the cup.
At the risk of sounding like a broken record (can one still use that simile?), I have to mention that I really want to write about social anxiety - to explain what it's like and why people get stuck in it. So far, I feel that none of the stories in which I've attempted to do this has hit the mark. I haven't given up. I'm learning more and more about writing and I'm still just as determined to do what I set out to do. But the question I want to put to you is this: Can a writer be too close to a topic to be able to write about it effectively? Does there have to be some distance between the writer and the topic? Does the writer always have to be on the outside?
