Caffeinated Inspiration is what Adalind Monroe has called all of her writing, collectively, since she was still in high school.

Mostly you can expect to read about the writing process, from creating believable characters and what makes a reader want to care about them, to those nagging questions writers ask themselves everyday.  Sometimes, though, you’ll get fantastically off-topic rants and observations about all the geek/nerdisms of life, and every “any time she is inclined to write one” you’ll see a new flash fiction piece, or short story.

Sit back, relax, pour some coffee and strap in for all the awesome your brain can possibly digest in a blog.  And if you can’t get enough Adalind here, follow her on all the social media things she frequents.  Hell, send her some cheesy pick up lines, and buy her a drink (Pro tip: She loves tea).  Stalkers get extra love on promo days.

And if you haven’t yet, go read what she writes.  All her short stories are free on Smashwords.com, and there’s a whole gallery of Flash Fiction waiting for your love (or fear, or hatred, or bemusement, or <emotion of choice>), so why not consume them all?  *I promise you won’t get heartburn.

[*This statement not FDA approved.  The author cannot guarantee that during the process of reading any of her work you will not get heartburn, brainfreeze, or eaten by zombies.  Please proceed with caution.]

  1. I have to say, while looking through hundreds of blogs daily, the theme of this blog is different (for all the proper reasons). If you do not mind me asking, what’s the name of this theme or would it be a especially designed affair? It’s significantly better compared to the themes I use for some of my blogs.

      Thanks. I wish I could say it was a custom design and be a little extra fancy like that, but it’s one of the themes you can find on the WordPress server. It’s called Motion, by Sam@84ideals. Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoy more than the pretty design. 😉

    “Exercize” is a misspelling. Having it appear prominently on the front page in a menu item appearing in bold faced type made me laugh, but it did not make we believe you have much credibility when it comes to your opinions about writing.

    • Adalind says:

      What I appreciate the most is your willingness to judge the credibility of my writing on the content of the advice I give, the stories I write, and the content of my blog. It would be so unfortunate if you were more inclined to decide I have nothing of value to offer other writers or the literary community because of a typo or misspelling. However, I’m pleased to know you’re not such a person. That said, I also appreciate the kindness you’ve shown in helping me identify a mistake I had overlooked in my haste. I have since remedied the problem. Please let me know if you spot any other misspellings or crimes against literature I may have failed to eliminate on my own.
