Can I Please Have a Glass of Water?


"There's only one person who needs a glass of water oftener than a small child tucked in for the night, and that's a writer sitting down to write."
  ~Mignon McLaughlin




Anybody thirsty?

Great quote! I love water; it's so refreshing. Water is always my drink of choice!

Jenna Wallace said...

This had me laughing. Some days I feel like there is a huge spring on the seat of my chair, since I seem to be constantly bouncing out if it to get a drink.

Kelly said...

This post is making me thirsty!

Karen @ Scobberlotch said...

Love this!

Old Kitty said...

Make mine a tall glass, thank you!
:-) Take care

Thanks for the laugh. It is so true!

Heather said...

Water? What is this foreign substance you speak of? Coffee, I need coffee! :)

Robyn Campbell said...

Coffee and water, bff. Where I come from you couldn't drink the water. It was full of sulfer. When I married and moved here to NC and had spring water and then well water, I thought it was heavenly. Best cure for a hot summer day. I often write out by the pool or down at the barn. Water is my go to drink. :0)

Tere Kirkland said...

God, yes, I'm dying over here! ;)

This is so true. I always need a nice drink while I'm writing. Iced tea or a chai latte. Mmmm!

Kenda said...

A glass of water, yes, or another cup of tea, or maybe up to sharpen a pencil...when I don't even use a pencil that much anymore! The list of distractions for a writer are endless, aren't they? Love the quote...

Angie said...

Yep. I'd better go get one right now!

Liz @ Cleverly Inked said...

Great quote.

Diane said...

Ain't that the truth! :O)

Susan Kaye Quinn said...

Ah, no kidding. *sits down after having just gotten up for more tea*

:)

Karen Lange said...

Love this quote. And yes, I am one thirsty amigo. I think Diet Coke will suffice. Now, do we have any in the house? Hmm, think the laundry needs attention too...
Happy weekend amigo,
Karen

Heavens, it's the truth. The worst is when I won't get out of my chair to go get the glass of water, but I can't stop thinking about it.

Ha! That's awesome. And yet so true.

Nicole said...

Yes, I'm thirsty! I had lots of water yesterday but none of it seemed to be enough. I think it's probably because it was very warm and humid weather outside or something.

Water is delicious!

You know, I read recently that dehydration makes the mind sluggish. So, this is actually true! :-) Who'd have thunk it?

Natalie Aguirre said...

I need more water. I tend to need coffee just as much.

Nicole Zoltack said...

LOL That is awesome! 90% of the time, if not, I drink water.

Jessica Love said...

HA! I love this!

Jessie Oliveros said...

Wow, everyone says they get thirsty while writing. Maybe that's the big X factor I'm missing in my writing.

Mary Aalgaard said...

What?! Have you been watching me?

Myrna Foster said...

This is so true. I'll forget to drink enough water during the day and then make up for it when I'm writing at night. I drink mine as I'm writing though, and hardly realize it until I've emptied my glass.

Stephanie Thornton said...

I do drink a ton of water, but Cherry Coke is my weakness. It's sooo good and yet, so bad for me!

Jennie Englund said...

Parched!

(Stephanie, Cherry Coke sounds SO good!)

Regina said...

I am always well hydrated by some sort of beverage while writing.

True! Oh and pregnant ladies! They are always thirsty.
