Good News for Writers: On The Coffee Front!

Some days you just don't want to deal with what if's and worst cases.

Some days, and this is one, I just want to sit and enjoy a hot cuppa at my favorite little café while writing some witty conversation or edit an important blog post.

You know the myth, the one about how J.K.R. wrote the first of her avalanche best sellers mornings in a little coffee emporium after dropping children off at school.  She'd get a hot cup of coffee, and write until time to pick up the little monsters.

For any writer with a similar habit of working with a cup of java or joe next to the right or left hand, here's the good, no, make that the most excellent news: 
Oct. 22, 2013 — Coffee consumption reduces risk of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), the most common type of liver cancer, by about 40 percent, according to an up-to-date meta-analysis published in Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology, the official clinical practice journal of the American Gastroenterological Association. Further, some data indicate that three cups of coffee per day reduce liver cancer risk by more than 50 percent.
Ain't it great?  Research also shows that eating 1.5 ounces of dark chocolate a day is healthy and helps one lose weight, drinking 4 ounces of red wine a day deters all sorts of horrible diseases such as Oldtimer's, and with a nod to George Carlin, eating blueberries makes one immortal.
 
What more could anyone want?  Besides an editor with a sense of humor and a publisher with ready cash burning holes in their checking account looking for exactly your book?
