Coffee to stimulate, tea to relax.

I grind my coffee beans (favor Peats) most of the time, and I like Dutch butter cookie-flavored creamer in it. Peppermint creamer during the holiday season, sometimes. I only drink coffee in the early mornings, though. When I carve out some time to write in the afternoon or evening, I use music to stimulate my mental juices. I like listening to video game soundtracks, especially old favorite RPGs that stir memories. Like Chrono Trigger or Legend of Mana.

I drink green tea or chamomile tea in the evenings. Straight, nothing in it. I like the natural flavor of the tea.
“Truth wasn't something you went out and found. It was wide and vast and deep and unending, and all you could hope to see was a tiny part of it. And to see that part and to mistake it for the whole was to make of Truth a lie.”
― Margaret Weis

My favorite neuro-stimulant is an apple. Before I sit to write, I eat a big fresh apple and walk around my house. Coffee and tea just prevent me to concentrate.
